Coming assembly elections in five states from February 4 is a high stake poll, seen as a test for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policies. Voting to elect new assemblies in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh will be held over next two months. The polls are being watched to see if Modi can reap political dividend from the move to scrap 500 and 1000-rupee bills to fight black money as well as the decision to strike militant hideouts across India’s border with Pakistan.

With the announcement of elections to five State Assemblies, campaigning by the parties is rising in a crescendo. The first temptation of the parties is to endear themselves to the voters by emphasizing on the interests of the castes, communities and religions they are committed to protecting and defending. This has now been strictly banned by the Supreme Court. But old habits die hard. The twin urges of winning the voters’ sympathy for one’s own party and creating an aversion in them for rival parties become aggressively manifest during election times.
