Samajwadi Party not making any alliance with Congress in assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh
OCT 06 (WTN) - Now after Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav has given setback to Congress in Madhya Pradesh. A bad news has come to the Congress from the Samajwadi which is preparing for the assembly elections. Samajwadi Party's National President Akhilesh Yadav today announced that his parties will not make alliance with the Congress in the assembly elections going to be held in Madhya Pradesh, but his party will contest the elections jointly with the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Gondwana Ganatantra Party.
Targeting at Congress, Akhilesh Yadav said, "Congress has waited too much and now they can’t wait. Nobody waits for anyone in politics. How long do we wait for them (Congress)?” At that time, Akhilesh Yadav indicated that Samajwadi Party will have discussion with BSP and Gondwana Ganatantra Party in Chhattisgarh. However, Akhilesh Yadav didn’t say anything about whether the Samajwadi Party would combine with the Congress in the Lok Sabha elections.
Now after the BSP, the Samajwadi Party has given a big blow to the Congress in Madhya Pradesh. The Congress, which has been exile form the power since 15 consecutive years in Madhya Pradesh, had hoped this time that by combining parties like BSP and Samajwadi Party, it would be able to stop the anti-BJP votes from being polarized and get the benefit of it. But after Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav has refrained from combining with the Congress. If the Congress had an alliance with the BSP and the Samajwadi Party then the votes against the BJP could have been together.
Congress, BSP and Samajwadi Party contested differently in 2013 assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh. In this election, the BSP had got 6.29 percent votes and it was successful in winning four seats, while the Samajwadi Party got 0.03 percent of the votes and its account could not even be opened, while Gondwana Ganatantra Party got nearly one percent of the vote and could not even win a single seat. BJP got 44.87 percent vote and won 165 seats. In the 2013 elections, Congress got 36.38 percent vote and it managed to win 58 seats. Now, if this time the Congress, BSP, Samajwadi Party and Gondwana Ganatantra Party contest together in the assembly elections, the polarization of anti-BJP votes could have been stopped and the anti BJP votes would have been together so that this alliance could give BJP a tough fight.
The absence of an alliance between Congress and Samajwadi Party is news of relief for the BJP camp. When the three parties will contest differently in the elections, the benefit will be to the BJP and the votes against it will be divided. Well, it is time to get an election now, maybe at the right time, the BSP and the Samajwadi Party may combine with the Congress, but its probability is less. Well, there is news of relief for the BJP at the moment.
