September 30: BJP PM Candidate Narendra Modi launched the offensive in Delhi yesterday with a very successful rally. Anil Padmanabhan, Deputy Managing Editor at Mint, says there is a strong Modi Wave, but it’s not yet translating into support for the BJP. Referring to Modi exploiting Nawaz Sharif’s comments during his meeting with the PM, he says Modi is playing very smart politics. “The state polls are crucial and give the BJP the drive to keep up Modi’s momentum until the elections,” he adds.
