BJP, AAP in close contest for New Delhi
Despite the wave of support for Narendra Modi working to the advantage of Meenakshi Lekhi, the Bharatiya Janata Party candidate for the New Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, it seems to be a close fight between her and Ashish Khetan of the Aam Aadmi Party, with the Congress' Ajay Maken in third place. At the polling station in Karol Bagh, Harish Gupta
Prince Harry set to marry Heiress
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a prince in possession of both a large fortune and good looks must be in want of a wife. In Prince Harry's case, the difficulty lay in finding "someone who would be willing to take [him] on". Now, however, the Queen's grandson appears to have found that elusive someone.

Protégés trouble Digvijaya
It was Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh who himself backed out from contesting against Narendra Modi in Varanasi, in spite of all his bravado in front of the media. He then recommended the name of Ajai Rai, his "protégé", to fight against Modi. Rai, originally an MLA with BJP, moved to the Samajwadi Party and then to the Congress in 2012. He is currently MLA from Varanasi. Digvijay had brought him into the Congress from the SP. However, all may not be well on the Congress' Varanasi front. There is speculation that Rai may return to the BJP just before the election, leaving the Congress in a lurch. If that happens, Rai will be the third Digvijaya "protégé" to do so. The others we...
HIGH VOLTAGE BATTLE
They're fighting on land, during morning walks and in digital space. The battle for Amritsar between Arun Jaitey and Capt Amarinder Singh has suddenly become one of the most high profile fights of this election. The duo have also taken to printing a daily missive against each other —Jaitley writes a Campaign Diary, while the Captain issues a statement a day released by his PR agency, the Communicators India. And of course the target is each other. If Jaitley accuses the Captain of "mindless aggression" and "fake bravado", then Amarinder Singh claims in his missive that after preaching theo-fascism the BJP is preaching eco-fascism, and accuses Jaitley of adopting a self contradictory stand ...
