Akhilesh Yadav and Kamal Nath
After the formation of INDIA alliance, there are assembly elections in 5 states including Madhya Pradesh. This is the first election after the formation of the alliance, but instead of unity, disunity was seen in the elections. It would also not be wrong to say that there has been a split in the alliance and Congress and Samajwadi Party have come face to face. After the blunder regarding SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, the dispute between veteran Congress leader Digvijay Singh and Kamal Nath may come to the fore again.
According to sources, it was discussed through Akhilesh Yadav and Digvijay Singh of UP unit that Samajwadi Party candidates are to be fielded on 6 seats, Akhilesh wanted that Congress should not field candidates on its symbol on 6 seats, if Congress wants Only the leaders should contest the elections on those seats with the SP symbol. When Kamal Nath got information about this, he did not agree to it and got the candidates declared.
BJP will get direct benefit
Kamal Nath said that local leaders are not ready for this. However, now the Congress high command wants to do damage control in this matter because Samajwadi Party has a good influence in Chambal, Gwalior and Vindhya region. If Samajwadi Party does not field candidates as per Congress in the areas bordering Uttar Pradesh, then BJP will get direct benefit from it.
Talking about the last elections (2018), there was a significant increase in the vote share of Congress in Gwalior Chambal and Vindh areas. In 2013, Congress’s vote share was 36.3 percent, while BJP’s was 44.8 percent. In 2018, BJP’s percentage was 41.02. Whereas Congress had 40.8 percent. If Samajwadi Party and other regional parties go against Congress then this vote share will reduce. This can cause great loss to Congress.
Who said what on the divide between Congress and Samajwadi Party?
- Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan said that Congress betrayed Samajwadi Party in MP. The condition of the arrogant alliance is ‘friendship in Delhi, wrestling in the states’.
- Former Chief Minister of MP Kamal Nath said that leave Akhilesh Vakhilesh.
- Congress spokesperson Supriya Srinet said that we are all together in the India alliance. It is appropriate for them to be angry. He is a little angry. Family members get angry, but questioning the alliance every time is a bit of political ignorance. We are in touch with them and will find a solution soon.
