UP Election 2017 mahagathbandhan: Mighty Modi VS SP, Congress, TMC, RJD, RLD
UP Election 2017, Congress ties Samajwadi Party: The mahagathbandhan tested once and well executed in Bihar elections. Where the combined effort of the local regional parties and the national parties came together to fight against Modi and won the election. Nitish Kumar became the Chief Minister of Bihar.
Hoping the same to happen again and consolidate the Muslim vote bank the Samajwadi party and the congresses are heading for the alliance.
One of the regions why the BJP got so many seats in the run for the 2014 Lok Sabha election was the division of the votes of the majority of Muslims between the Congress, BSP, Samajwadi party. The Jats other majority community voted for the BJP after the Muzaffarnagar riots. The congress and the Samajwadi party are in a hurry to consolidate the Minority Vote bank as fast as possible.
It is indeed true that after the recent move demonetisation there is more positive consensus among the public towards the Modi led BJP government and to feed the negativity among the common public it will need a lot of efforts and advertisement to make people against the Modi led BJP government.
The UP election is likely to present a people from all the states who can line up against Modi, Rahul’s sister Priyanka Gandhi and Akhilesh’s wife Dimple Yadav doing roadshows all over the state. Apart, from this other leading campaigners such as Nitish Kumar, Laloo Prasad Yadav, Mamata Banerjee and Sharad Pawar may also address rallies at different places giving support to the mahagathbandhan.
The not so young leader Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav knows that the combined force of the Modi and the RSS will cost them dearly if they did not have come together
There is another party which is more interested to join the alliance– Jayant Choudhary of Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD). Chances are that the RLD would join the mahagathbandhan 2.
