Election Fever 2022: Goa Congress distress exit of MLAs continues, former UP BJP MLA gets aboard cycle bandwagon, Uttarakhand snaps up Rishabh Pant as brand ambassador

With assembly elections just months away, politicians are jumping ship from one party to another party like there is no tomorrow.

Christmas almost here but Goa Congress on losing wicket

Goa, which saw the Congress legislature merge with the BJP, saw another exodus to the BJP, Trinamool Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party. Counting all these, at least 8 MLAs have found new allegiances.  Three have joined BJP, 2 have walked over to the Trinamool Congress while one has joined the Aam Aadmi Party. The Congress did get one independent MLA over to its side, or maybe it’s too early to say that.

Now, a Dal Badlu from Uttar Pradesh

Former BJP MLA Ram Iqbal Singh, a vocal critic of the Yogi Adityanath government, who had demanded Union Minister Ajay Kumar Mishra Teni’s resignation in the Lakhimpur violence case, has joined the Samajwadi Party along with his supporters.

The party tweeted a picture of Ram Iqbal Singh with Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav saying the SP’s caravan is growing longer. Possibly hinting at more such jump-shippers in the pipeline.

Singh had earlier taken a dig at Yogi Adityanath, suggesting that if he is removed from the post of the chief minister, he will immediately become a monk.

Cycle being oiled, polished for next yatra

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav announced the schedule of the 8th phase of his Vijay Yatra. The party tweeted that Samajwadi Vijay Rath will continue to ride and the public support will keep increasing.

Addressing the Yatra, Yadav attacked the BJP over the income tax raids on its leaders saying if BJP thinks that they can halt the Samajwadi Vijay rath, then they are mistaken. The rath will stop only when the SP government is installed in the state, he said.

Mathura fuel added to the UP Assembly poll bonfire

BJP Mathura MP Hema Malini has said that after Ayodhya and Kashi, her constituency will also get a grand temple. She expressed confidence in the leadership of PM Narendra Modi and said that a Kashi like corridor will also come up in Mathura.

Nadda canvasses in Uttar Pradesh

The Jan Vishvas Yatra of the BJP, which was flagged off simultaneously from six different locations, will end on January 1-2 after covering all 403 assembly constituencies of the state.

The yatra, flagged off by BJP national president J.P. Nadda in Ambedkarnagar district, will end in Lucknow’s Kakori area. Similarly, the yatra, flagged off by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in Mathura, will end in Bareilly, UP BJP spokesperson Harish Srivastava said.

Dhami appoints Rishabh Pant as Uttara Khand ambassador

Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has appointed Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant as the brand ambassador of the state. Taking to Twitter, the Chief Minister said that Pant will encourage the youngsters to take up sports.

In Uttarakhand, the BJP is riding high on the double engine mantra – having the same party in power at the Centre and in the state – and is confident of breaking the jinx.

With the Congress and the BJP alternating in power, the poll batte in Uttarakhand has bipolar, but, however, this time, Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party has entered the fray to shake things up a little.

Uttarakhand is one of the few states where the Congress sees a ray of hope and expects to capitalise on the anti-incumbency votes.

However, the Congress has not projected any chief ministerial face yet but Harish Rawat, who is considered the de facto candidate, had earlier said he would like to see a Dalit CM head the Congress government in the state. But the AAP has promised surprises too saying that voters will give surprising results

BJP to reveal the name of next Chief Minister of Goa today

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will hold a meeting today in Panaji, Goa where it will unravel the suspense over the name of the next Chief Minister and the date of the swearing-in ceremony. The BJP legislature party meeting will take place at 4 pm at the BJP office.

Eleven days after winning 20 seats in the 40-member House and securing the support of two MGP MLAs and three Independents, the saffron party will ask the governor to stake a claim to form the government.

On Sunday, Goa BJP President Sadanand Tanavade revealed that Union Ministers Narendra Singh Tomar and L. Murugan will attend the meeting as BJP central observers to help the state establish a government.

Pramod Sawant, a BJP leader, and the temporary chief minister is the strong frontrunner for the role of CM, but he faces some opposition.

Pushkar Singh Dhami, Madan Kaushik or Trivendra Singh Rawat? Who will be the next Chief Minister of Uttarakhand?

Amid the ongoing political upheaval in the state, the fate of the Uttarakhand Chief Minister remains a mystery. The state’s political atmosphere has become increasingly tense. The meeting of Bharatiya Janata Party MLAs which was scheduled to be held today has now been postponed and no decision related to the next Chief Minister of Uttarakhand has been made yet.

All of a sudden, Pushkar Singh Dhami and Madan Kaushik have been instructed to reach New Delhi. According to the reports, the meeting for the next CM is currently taking place at Amit Shah’s residence. Earlier on Friday, former Chief Minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat was also notified to reach New Delhi.

In this situation, the question is whether the party will pay attention to the experience of Trivendra Singh Rawat, who was in power for four years, or whether it will make a surprising decision once again.

The BJP high command is yet to open its cards regarding the state’s chief minister. A decision on this will be taken in the legislature party meeting to be held on Monday or Tuesday. At the same time, all of the contenders for the state’s chief minister have met with prominent politicians in Delhi to submit their claims. Simultaneously, interim Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, who lost the state’s legislative elections, is also competing for the post of CM.

At the same time, Maharashtra Governor and former Chief Minister Bhagat Singh Koshyari is in Delhi. There is speculation that Koshyari is approaching the Delhi high command in favor of Dhami. Trivendra Rawat, the state’s former chief minister, is currently in Delhi meeting with National President JP Nadda and National General Secretary Organization BL Santosh.

The visit of former Chief Minister of state Trivendra Singh Rawat has created speculations of him being the next CM of Uttarakhand. However, Trivendra has already made it clear that he is not an MLA and is not in the race of CM.

It will be interesting to see who will be the next Chief Minister of Uttarakhand!

The result for the state assembly elections was out on March 10 along with Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Manipur and Goa. BJP in Uttarakhand won 47 seats out of 70 Assembly seats.
