September 13: Anil Padmanabhan, Deputy Managing Editor at Mint, says the election will be fought and won in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. These states have 120 seats, 320 million people and 8-10% of first-time voters, so BJP has to do well here. Communal polarization in UP has been going on for some time and intensified in the past few weeks. While this will affect voter behaviour, it’s too early to call on how the public will vote as economy is also important, he says.
