Just an assortment of tweets, comments, and some articles that came before 16 May 2014, when the general election results were announced. The following list is just indicative, and no way exhaustive:
My political assessment after 2 days in Varanasi – Modi ji is losing Varanasi. He shud therefore concentrate on vadodara.

Iam willing to bet that Amit Shah will be quietly withdrawn as Uttar Pradesh campaign incharge of BJP in due course.He is becoming a burden! — M K Venu (@mkvenu1) November 18, 2013
BJP made umpteen tactical mistakes today in Varanasi, @ArvindKejriwal now has two days to make them pay for it. Ball is in AAP’s court. KP

Ok, Modi was the last wildcard in this election,seen enough of him to make a firm prediction: neither BJP or Congress will get 150 seats! KP — Krishan Partap Singh (@RaisinaSeries) June 29, 2013
