Mayawati-Akhilesh tie up, leave Congress seats only for Rahul and Sonia

Published

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have sealed a deal to contest 2019 Lok Sabha elections in alliance, leaving three seats for Ajit Singh-led Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) and only two seats of Raebareli and Amethi for Congress in Uttar Pradesh (UP).

Congress has, thus, been practically left out of the alliance by the two parties, though they extended support to it to help it manage the numbers in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, in both of which it was short of majority by two seats. Both SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati, however, skipped the oath-taking ceremonies of the three Congress chief ministers while other Opposition leaders turned up for a show of unity.

The two seats that SP-BSP have left for Congress in UP are those of the Congress’ first family: Amethi is represented by Congress President Rahul Gandhi, while Sonia Gandhi is Lok Sabha MP from Raebareli.

RLD will get Mathura, Baghpat and Kairana Lok Sabha seats, said media reports.

An official announcement is likely to be made in this regard on January 15, 2019, when BSP supremo Mayawati celebrates her birthday, said media reports citing sources.

A report in the Hindi daily, Dainik Jagran, said that both SP and BSP will try to adjust some smaller political outfits instead of giving respectable seats to the Congress.

Media reports quoting sources said that the two parties felt that their old experiences also suggest that there is no benefit of the Congress taking along because their votes don’t get transferred to the SP and the BSP.

Earlier in August, top Congress sources had said that it was a part of the UP seat sharing and the deal was virtually sealed with SP and BSP.

SP might contest on 37 seats, BSP might contest on 38 seats and the rest will be divided between RLD and other smaller political outfits, said the report. There are 80 LS seats in UP of which BJP and its allies won 73 in 2014.

Earlier on Monday, SP chief and former chief minister of the state Akhilesh Yadav, while answering to queries related to DMK President MK Stalin’s call for Rahul Gandhi as PM candidate in 2019, said the opinion of the alliance can be different from Stalin’s opinion.

“The people are unhappy with the BJP. Telangana CM, Mamata ji and Sharad Pawar ji had attempted to bring together all leaders to form an alliance. If someone (Stalin) is giving his opinion, it isn’t necessary that alliance has the same opinion.” said Akhilesh Yadav.

Meanwhile, BSP leader Anubhav Chak told News18 that even if the Congress performs well in the state assembly elections, there won’t be any pressure on BSP to accommodate Congress in the alliance for 2019 in UP. “Congress had fought last assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh in coalition with Samajwadi Party and the results are in front of everyone. Even if Congress gains upper hand in a few states, then too there will not be any kind of pressure on BSP to include Congress in any kind of alliance for 2019 Lok Sabha Elections,” he had said.

The BJP along with Apna Dal had won 73 seats in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections while the SP got five seats while the Congress got two seats. The BSP failed to get any seat in the state.

A coming together of the BSP and SP is likely to dent the BJP’s prospects. The strength of SP-BSP alliance was demonstrated earlier this year when they snatched Gorakhpur and the Phulpur Lok Sabha seats from the BJP in the bypolls. Later, the RLD defeated BJP to take the Kairana Lok Sabha seat.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

The PM question the people present at the rally that is it not a disrespect of Mata Shabri? Congress leaders inclination toward appeasement politics runs in their family.

For political appeasement, they won’t think twice about stealing the rights of Adivasis, the poor, and Dalits. Poor, young, and women are BJP’s top priorities, Modi said.

PM Modi criticized the Congress again during the rally for claiming that the BJP would alter the constitution.

The leaders of Congress recite the same old phrases whenever an election is about to happen, the PM said. He also said they claim that if the BJP wins power, it will renounce the constitution and abolish reservations. For how long will you continue selling lies?” he asked.

The prime minister continued saying that nobody can change the Constitution, even if Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar were to come and insist on it, it wouldn’t happen.

Those in the Congress threaten to break Modi’s head. Nobody can harm Modi as long as the mothers and sisters of this county stands by him. These mothers and sisters are Raksha Kavach, Modi remarked.

The prime minister further attacked the Congress after Viriato Fernandes, the party’s candidate for South Goa, asserted that Goa was forced to adopt the Indian Constitution.

Referring to his conversation with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Fernandes said he had told him, when Goa was liberated in the year 1961, the Indian Constitution was forced upon us.

The prime minister said, Congress candidate from Goa says Constitution was forced upon Goans; is this not an insult of Ambedkar and Constitution.

Shah further added if the people of West Bengal want to stop infiltration in the state, then they will have to make Narendra Modi the Prime Minister of India again. He said if the people of West Bengal want to free Bengal of violence, stop infiltration in the state, give citizenship to refugees, to stop disrespecting mothers and sisters of the state as it happened in Sandeshkhali, then  only way is to make Narendra Modi the Prime Minister.

Amit Shah said that PM Modi had sent Rs 7 lakh crore to West Bengal but the TMC indulged in corruption. He said one can see the houses of Trinamool Congress leaders; 10 years ago they used to live in a hut, moved on cycle and now all of them have 4-storey houses and move around in big cars. He added this is the money of people of West Bengal.

He added when Modi exposed the secret then the hidden agenda came out and this has left the people trembling. PM Modi further added that the Congress party has played with the Constitution of the India.
