BJP's oldest ally ends in Congress' lap
11/17/2019 10:34:11 PM
Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) has lost one of its oldest allies in Maharashtra i.e. Shiv Sena. Both the parties which contested the recently held Assembly elections in the state as alliance partners parted their ways after the results were declared. The Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thakeray demanded that Sena should be given a chance to hold the Chief Minister's office for two and a half years and the BJP should stick to 50-50 formula. However, BJP refused to oblige Sena and remained adamant on its stand that the Chief Minister's office would be held by a BJP man for all the five years. The negotiations between the two old allies ended in a deadlock as none of the parties relented. Ultimately BJP gave up and announced that it won't form the government.
The BJP not softening its stand pushed the Sena into the lap of Congress and NCP led by the old Congressman Sharad Pawar. Both NCP and Congress had contested Maharashtra polls together. The possibility about Sena, NCP and Congress alliance are looking up. But the Sena is insisting that Chief Ministership should remain with it for all the five years. Since the day Sena has cosied up with the NCP and Congress, BJP leaders have been lambasting the Shiv Sena for entering into an alliance with the parties which are ideoligically different. They are terming it as a betrayal with the mandate of people and are claiming that its going to be a north pole-south pole alliance. The BJP is aghast as the pressure exerted by it in Maharashtra has not yielded the desired results. It seems that BJP needs to be reminded that it entered into an alliance in Jammu & Kashmir with Peoples' Democratic Party, the party which was known for its separatist leanings. Incidentally, both the parties had fought 2014 Assembly elections in J&K against each other and had left no opportunity to fire salvos at each other during the election campaign. If BJP entering into an alliance with PDP was justified then how come Sena joining hands with NCP and Congress is unjustified?
If the deal between Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress is struck in Maharashtra it will once again prove that the politics is the art of possibilities which at times leads to worst enemies of each other to bury their hatchets and move on. This is the beauty of the democracy.
