Politicians are yet against pre-poll alliances
2/12/2019 10:35:22 PM
National Conference leadership is not
yet motivated by Rahul Gandhi's desire for exploring the possibility of forging a pre-poll alliance, on the pattern of others states where many parties have come together under the grand alliance. National Conference Vice President and former chief minister Omar Abdullah has said it would be premature to talk about any pre-poll alliance for the upcoming Lok Sabha and Legislative Assembly polls. On his reaction about the Congress President Rahul Gandhi's remarks that they were ready for an alliance with local parties in Jammu and Kashmir, Omar said, "Farooq sahib has had no discussions with his colleagues about any possible alliances. So it will be premature for NC to react to this statement."Gandhi had said that Congress was in favour of entering into electoral alliances wherever possible so that secular parties collectively take on the rightwing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).According to reports, Gandhi has asked the State Congress chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir to explore possibilities of an alliance in Jammu Kashmir for both Lok Sabha as well as Legislative Assembly polls. Well this time there is a possibility og forming an alliance between the Congress and the National Conference after the PDP burnt its fingers by forging an alliance with the BJP. This way the alliance between the PDP and the Congress, which last for five years in 2002, may not be possible.
In the past alliances between the NC and the Congress and between the PDP and the Congress while fighting the Assembly elections have been possible but either the pre-poll alliance or the post-poll alliance have been fructified during the Assembly elections. But as for as the Lok Sabha elections are concerned there all the national and the regional parties each political party has tried to go solo. After he 1996 Assembly polls though he NC won an absolute majority in the House it took some Congressmen in the cabinet. But after 1996 it has been the scene of post-poll either between the NC and the Congress or between the Congress and the PDP. Indications are that this time neither the PDP nor the NC would have a tie with the BJP because the PDP's image had been tarnished because of the post-poll alliance. There were very compulsions on the part of the PDP, which had won 28 seats. The first compulsion was a possible alliance with the BJP, which had won 25 seats, but the failure of the two to remain together and provide a good governance proved unsuccessful. The PDP would have joined hands with the Congress, which had won 12 seats, but the numerical strength in the House of 87 was too meagre to form the Government. And the PDP saw in the NC a potential political foe.
Now that both the National Conference and the PDP have seen the fragility of an alliance with the BJP. This way neither the NC nor the PDP would join hands with the BJP. Suppose the PDP repeats its figure of 28 in the Assembly and the BJP repeats its performance by grabbing 25 seats still here is least possibility for the PDP to join hands with the BJP. In that case neither the NC nor the PDP will fritter away any chance of forging an alliance with the BJP. In that case the PDP or the Congress or the NC may opt for joining a grand alliance. It was an advice given to PDP by the senior Congress leader, Ghulam Nabi Azad, who had mooted the idea of PDP joining the grand alliance of the Congress and the NC. But the PDP leadership had rejected Azad's plea which left PDP in a bad shape. Even the BJP has been wronged and there are very little possibilities of PDP repeating its performance or the BJP repeating its performance which they achieved in 2014 elections. This way Omar Abdullah is right when he said that the NC leadership had not discussed the pre-poll alliance. If it does it means it is feeling unsafe and does not want to throw some major constituencies for the Congress.
