Forget the manifestos, what about reviving the economy

Whoever comes to power will inherit an economy that needs far more than tall promises or grandiose ideas. The BJP and Congress manifestos have been disappointing. What will have to be watched is the next Union budget, writes HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

This election, UP is anything but an open and shut case

The issue elections forgot: creating jobs for the young

Nearly a third of Indians, or 350 million, are 15-29 years old. Jobless growth is a time bomb, particularly in India, where young people greatly outnumber the old, writes HT Editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

The BJP and Modi are ahead, but it's not over till it's over

Everybody is predicting a debacle for the Congress. But should it get anything above 100 seats the grand old party will remain a threat to the BJP’s grand ambitions. As they say, in politics, as in cricket, anything can happen, writes HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

Is AAP the real NOTA in the coming polls?

Rahul Gandhi should stick to running the Congress party

The Congress has done a wise thing by not naming its vice-president Rahul Gandhi as a prime ministerial candidate in the coming general elections. Gandhi is taking too much time to evolve into a less-reluctant and more decisive leader, says HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

Young, angry and jobless: the looming danger India can't see

If the surge in mass movements such as the protests against corruption or even the surprising rise of a rookie party such as AAP are any evidence, the more populous part of this social inequation is ticking away like a bomb that is about to go off, writes Sanjoy Narayan.

People wanted good governance from AAP, not midnight raids

Even before he ended his own government’s barely seven-week tenure, Kejriwal may have lost another constituency that voted for his party last year: the middle class. Hindustan Times editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan writes.

Behave, please: how lawless MPs, MLAs hurt democracy

Our MPs and MLAs should tell people they are sorry for abusing the trust reposed in them, writes Hindustan Times' editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan. Poll: Should lawmakers who disrupt Parliament/legislatures be sacked?
