Is there a possibility of non- congress” third front” in 2019 election?

Third front can arise due to many reasons like Some political parties are neither happy with ruling party nor looking forward to go with the opposition. Sometimes allied members of ruling party don't want to proceed further with current one but can't join hands with the opposition and Sometimes they saw their own opportunity and equations to form the government. But in Indian political history, not much importance has been given to the third front. With BJP in power by winning a majority in 2014 election every other party is now desperate at a chance of leadership in 2019 election. Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao recently proposed a non-Congress, non-BJP Third Front and this idea of divided opposition will clearly work as beneficial and advantageous to BJP.

After the huge saffron tide in the Northeast, the bypoll election results have really come as a shock to the ruling BJP. It was defeated by a considerable margin in 4 of the 5 constituencies which went for the bypolls recently and most importantly this includes Gorakhpur which is supposedly the bastion of the UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.Will UP bypolls results have an impact on the impending 2019 Lok Sabha elections?  It is indeed likely. What might be the reason for the downfall of BJP in UP bypolls? The key factor that played a role in the defeat of the ruling party in UP was the very unexpected alliance between the SP and BSP.

Are Simultaneous Elections to Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabhas Constitutionally Sound?

After the recent streak of television interviews given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the possibility of simultaneous elections to the 17th Lok Sabha and all State Assemblies has returned to the political discourse in the country. Although the issue was in limelight in 1999 after the 170th Law Commission Report, in 2015 after the 79th Report of the Parliamentary Standing Committee was tabled in both houses of the Parliament, and in 2016 after a NITI Aayog Discussion Paper, its return is at a crucial juncture of Indian electoral politics.
