The BJP has no doubt that its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi contesting from Varanasi will win, for two reasons.

First, Modi is a sure winner. Second, Varanasi has been a BJP bastion except in 2004 when Rajesh Mishra of Congress won the seat.

Three of the five assembly seats in urban Varanasi belong to the BJP, as do the municipal corporation and the mayoral office. But the party is not complacent. It is deploying its volunteers as though it is fighting a full-fledged battle and the opponents are formidable.

Amid Gandhi family's attacks on Narendra Modi over the Gujarat model, BJP on Sunday hit back by bringing out a video and a booklet on alleged land deals of Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law by terming it as 'Robert Vadra model of development'.

Alleging that the 'model' became successful due to the patronage provided by the Gandhi family to Robert Vadra, BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "There was gross violation of laws relating to land and environment. The influence of the family helped make Vadra big earnings in the deals." The six-page booklet titled 'Damad (son-in-law) Shree' refers to the alleged deals of Vadra in Rajasthan and Haryana.

10:19 IST Monday, 28 April 2014: Six years later, Singur remains a key poll issue

Fear is the key where lies the ghost of Tata Motor's Nano plant off NH2. Not a soul could be seen anywhere near whatever remains of a promise to transform the rich agri-fields into an automobile hub. The dream died in 2008 but it still stinks at the graveyard.

"Don't tell anybody you are from the Press. You could be in trouble," advised a portly built man who runs an eatery on the opposite side of the expressway.

On Friday, Dalit leader Mayawati surprised many with her statement that Narendra Modi should have tried out his political might in Amethi "since he is a prime ministerial candidate like Rahul Gandhi".

The next day, BSP watchers were even more intrigued as she slammed Baba Ramdev for his particularly offensive remarks against Rahul Gandhi.
