Congress' 'No Coalition' strategy for Madhya Pradesh assembly elections

OCT 12 (WTN) - It is almost clear in Madhya Pradesh that in the assembly elections, the Congress will no longer make any alliance with any party and want to defeat the BJP on its own. First BSP then SP and then Gondwana Ganatantra Party have said ‘NO’ to the coalition with the Congress. The three parties have blamed on the Congress for not forming alliance. But the big question among all this is whether the Congress has made a big mistake by not cooperating, because if the BSP, SP and Gondwana Ganatantra Party had been together, polarization of anti-BJP votes could be stopped, or else being not involved in any alliance, the Congress is working on its ‘big strategy’. 

Let's talk first about the BSP. In the last assembly elections in 2013, the BSP had secured nearly 6 percent of the votes and won four seats, and in 11 seats it was in second place. That time it was seemed that BSP and Congress could come together to defeat the BJP. But on the occasion, Mayawati cleared that BSP would not form alliance with the Congress. On being behind for no alliance, Mayawati had accused some Congress leaders including Digvijay Singh that the BSP and Congress coalition could not be formed due to them. Madhya Pradesh Congress President Kamal Nath said here that Mayawati was demanding about 50 seats in the alliance which was not logical, so coalition was not formed.

In fact, the BSP's base is more in the Gwalior-Chambal area and this area is considered as the stronghold of Jyotiraditya Scindia. It may be that Scindia has a strategy behind for forming coalition, because if the BSP could be in alliance, then the BSP demanded the maximum seats from the area and if it would have been happened, then Scindia would have become weak.

Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav has also cleared that due to the Congress's flexible stance and delay, SP will not combine with the Congress in Madhya Pradesh assembly elections. Akhilesh Yadav had even said in Chhattarpur, “Those Congress leaders who are not getting ticket from Congress should come to the Samajwadi Party; the SP will give tickets to them.” It is being said that Congress was not already in the mood to combine with SP. In the UP Assembly elections, the Congress-SP combine had suffered badly and the SP didn’t have any base in the state. In such a scenario, Congress has not been ready for any kind of alliance with SP since the beginning.

Gondwana Ganatantra Party which holds good support in the Mahakaushal area has also accused the Congress of not forming alliance. The party says that for about two months, there had been discussion for coalition with Congress, but the Congress didn’t show any kind of positive attitude, after which Gondwana Ganatantra Party has decided to contest the elections on their own.
 
Political analysts say that the Congress didn’t really want to make alliance with any party for assembly elections in the state. The party's senior leaders believe that if Congress goes for alliance with BSP and SP, then there would be message among the people that the Congress has become weak and cann’t defeat the BJP on its own, in such cases the seniors leaders of Congress Instead of alliance with any party, they decided to contest the elections alone.

It is also being said that the Congress is certain that due to the anti-incumbency wave of 15 years against the BJP and the amendment in the SC-ST Act, due to the BJP's traditional vote bank displeasure, this time Congress can defeat the BJP. At the same time, the party believes that by aligning with BSP and SP, they don’t want to annoy the district label leaders, because after the coalition, the Congress has to give about 30 to 35 seats to BSP and SP, due to not contesting in election, these leaders could have been angry.

It seems that with a lot of thought, the Congress has decided not to alliance. If the Congress would make alliance with the BSP, then the upper castes and the backward class voters could have been upset. At the same time, the SP doesn’t have enough support and base in the state of Madhya Pradesh for alliance to let the party leaders be angry. At the same time, the Gondwana Ganatantra Party is active only in the field of Mahakaushal and this area is belong to Kamal Nath, he would not want to prove himself weak by co-aligning with a small party. Considering all these equations, it seems that the Congress has taken a strategic decision to not combine with any party and contest the elections on its own. That is to say that Congress has adopted 'Ekla Chalo Re' policy in the Madhya Pradesh.
