BSP supremo Mayawati, former MP CM Kamal Nath and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav.
There seems to be a close contest between Congress and BJP in Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections. While Congress is hoping to return to power, BJP is trying to maintain its dominance. Due to lack of seat sharing with Congress, Samajwadi Party is alone in the electoral fray while BSP is once again trying to become kingmaker with the help of Dalit votes. The way Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati have now opened a front against the Congress, will it spoil the hopes of the Congress getting better success and Kamal Nath coming to power?
As the date of Madhya Pradesh elections is coming closer, the contest between Congress and BJP is also becoming interesting. The challenge for Congress is also increasing. On one hand, Congress rebels have become a cause of concern, while on the other hand, the alliance of BSP and Gondwana Party has also spoiled the calculations of Congress on many seats. The way Akhilesh Yadav has toughened his stance towards Congress, the challenge for Kamal Nath has increased.

This time there may be a triangular contest on more seats than before

This is why it is making every possible effort to weaken these rebels and Congress is trying to do damage control by accusing SP-BSP, who are campaigning aggressively, of being the B-team of BJP. In Madhya Pradesh, adjacent to Uttar Pradesh, SP seems to be challenging Congress on many seats, while the biggest loss to Congress can be caused by the alliance of Gondwana Gantantra Party and BSP. Let’s see how Congress does damage control?
