Winter storm

The editorial points out that Banerjee never claimed to possess any "magic potion" to heal the state from the ills of 34 years of communist rule overnight. It appeals to others to not join the ranks of the Left and the Congress, which were "doing more a job of termite" as her ally.

"The Congress and the Communists are watching from the pavilion to see her trip and fall. We must not add chorus to it," the editorial says, adding that Banerjee is a "rare breed" of politician in a country that "need dozens like her".

VHP behind Modi

While Narenrda Modi's recent visit to the Sangh Parivar headquarters in Nagpur was seen as an attempt by Modi to rope in active Parivar support for his fourth consecutive chief ministerial bid, he appears to have succeeded. Both Parivar weeklies have reported a Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha meeting in Ahmedabad recently where VHP patron Ashok Singhal had lauded Modi saying his government not only brought development but also "enhanced the power of Hindu community". Singhal's remarks are likely to motivate his followers.
