New Delhi: There has been talk of between 37 and 37 Lok Sabha seats between the BSP and Samajwadi Party. That is, there will be no room for Congress in the coalition of the two parties in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Now everyone is waiting for the Congress stand. While the Congress is still silent, the Samajwadi Party has adopted an aggressive approach. The party’s senior leader yesterday said that the Samajwadi Party, in collaboration with the BAPC in Uttar Pradesh, is capable of defeating BJP in the coming general elections and it does not need ‘non-essential’ force like Congress.
National Vice-President of Samajwadi Party (SP) Kiranmaya Nanda said that the SP-BSP alliance could leave Rae Bareli and Amethi constituencies. Rahul Gandhi is MP from Rae Bareli, Sonia Gandhi and Amethi
Nanda said, “Congress is unnecessary in Uttar Pradesh, so we are not thinking of adding or excluding it.” He said, “If the SP-BSP coalition is the main strength in the state, then the BJP will face the BJP. Congress can be in one or two seats. It is on the Congress to decide where she wants to see herself. ”
Nanda’s comments came after news of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati and Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Akhilesh Yadav talking about the speeding up of dialogue to take a final decision on seat sharing before Lok Sabha elections. The two leaders had met in New Delhi on Friday.
According to Nanda, Congress still has not been able to adapt to the mantra of ‘coalition politics’ because’ she is not ready to leave an inch even in her states where she is strong but where she is weak, Hopes to leave a bigger part. ‘
Would it be beneficial for the BJP to keep the Congress out of the alliance in Uttar Pradesh? On this question, he said, “On the basis of our past experiences we can say that where the Congress has fielded its candidates against the SP-BSP coalition, we have not had any difficulty in defeating the BJP. Congress vote share is totally non-essential. “When asked about the candidature of the opposition coalition candidate, Nanda said that the decision about this will be decided on a consensus after the election.
Reasons to distance from Congress
Let us tell you that after the defeat of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Akhilesh Yadav had formed a coalition with the Congress in the 2017 assembly elections. Then the UP liked this with the slogan was very good. But this coalition did not achieve special success. In total 403 seats in the assembly, the Congress managed only seven and the Samajwadi Party won 47 seats. The Bahujan Samaj Party was reduced to only 19 seats. BJP occupied 312 seats.
Talking about the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Modi wave saw the Congress, the Samajwadi Party and the BSP battered. In this election two Congress, Samajwadi Party could win five seats. At the same time, the BSP failed to open the account.
Given the consistent poor performance, Akhilesh took away from the Congress and announced to go with Mayawati. Both of these collaborations have achieved tremendous success in the bye-elections of Phulpur, Gorakhpur and Karaana. The three seats were occupied by BJP before the elections. Now both the parties hope that they will also spark BJP in the Lok Sabha elections.
