Cracks in the jigsaw

Cracks in the jigsaw: "Just when coalitions were appearing to stabilise, they have started cracking. First, it was the UPA-LF coalition that split on the rock of the nuclear deal. But the NDA was not to be left behind: it steadily kept losing partners — the National Conference, Trinmool, and finally the BJD. One would have thought that the Congress would seize the initiative and create a larger alliance before the elections; but the party, even while forging an alliance with Mamata Banerjee, chose to literally throw away partners in a too-clever-by-half move, announcing instead that it would not have any national level alliance. Come election season and everyone is finding new allies and finding excuses to dump older allies."
