    Phase 5, the final 'battleground' for the bigwigs of Indian politics

    When names like Rahul Gandhi, Smriti Irani, Sonia Gandhi, Rajnath Singh, Jayant Sinha, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Rajiv Pratap Rudy are involved, the phase has to be a power fueled one.

    Even though phase 5 is the smallest phase in terms of the number of constituencies that go to polls, the battles are definitely big.

    Amethi is of course the big pitch. With Rahul Gandhi defending his fourth term from here and Smriti Irani trying her might to turn the tables and write a new story for herself. There was the booth capturing allegation from her side that captured the day but finally died its own death by the evening.

    Poonam Sinha, wife of actor turned politician Shatrughan Sinha is the latest politician on the block. With a near nil experience but a star daughter and husband as campaigners, she is pitched against political bigwig, Rajnath Singh in Lucknow.

    Olympian sportspersons Rajya Vardhan Singh and Krishna Poonia are fighting it out too even as Sonia Gandhi defends the Raebareli seat, that for years, has been the Congress fort.

    Phase 5 could be the mid overs game changer of sorts. With two more phases to still vote, the equations can alter. However, the voter has made the decision and the wave has been decided in the minds of the Indian voter.

    A decision that should be based maturely on the credibility of a candidate and not be swayed by caste, creed, religion, long talks and unfulfilled dreams.
