When it comes to the five impending elections for state assemblies, it is not uncommon for members of one political family to be on opposite sides of the political divide. Everyone in Akhilesh Yadav's large family has been marginalised after a protracted rift, earning the Samajwadi Party (SP) considerable public ridicule for being a family business. Having no future in the SP, Aparna Yadav, his sister-in-law, decided to join the BJP. There is a fading return to the Badal family dominance of the Akali Dal, which has ruled Punjab politics for decades.

If the 2022 elections are essentially a bipolar struggle, the political dynamic may shift, with greater possibilities for both the BJP and the SP. And, with elections being conducted in the shadow of another Covid strain, the pandemic's effect on millions of aam voters in the state may play a role in addition to the normal metrics of caste, community, and sub-region. Leaders getting ready for u...
