The assembly elections in five states are being specified like a semi-final before all the major 2019 Lok Sabha elections. States that will be heading for assembly polls in November-December are Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram, Rajasthan, and Telangana. The December 11 would be the D-Day on which counting for all the five states will be conducted.
Saffron Party is fighting against an anti-incumbency drift in three of the five states. Politics in the three states — Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan have witnessed largely double contests between the BJP and the Indian National Congress. However, the third front and other parties now want a five-finger exercise.
So far opinion polls suggest a possibility of a tough battle between BJP and Congress in Madhya Pradesh, but recently in an alarming manner Pt. Devkinandan Thakur, National President of Akhand Bharat Mission has entered in the electoral field of Madhya Pradesh. After fulfilling his pre-determined Kathas, he has sacrificed his full strength in this battle.
THIRD PARTIES PREPARATION
On October 27th, after returning to India, Devkinandan Thakur was received with a grand reception at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi Airport. From there, he went to Vrindavan where he held a meeting with leaders of many parties.
On October 31st, Pt. Devkinandan Thakur briefly held a press conference at Bhopal office of Akhand Bharat Mission, where he formed Sarv Samaj Kalyan Party, who’s President Vijay Sharma was made. On the formation of the party, he said that he will neither enter the politics nor will he contest the election, he will support every party that will work for the country.
On the very next day of the formation of the party on 1st November a huge road show and general assembly held in Ujjain by Devkinandan.
The inception of Sarv Samaj Kalyan Party has definitely created an uneasiness in BJP.
ACE OF ELECTION BATTLE
In 2014 the Bhartiya Janata party stormed at the Centre and since then it has been on an election-winning juggernaut. They have wrestled with Congress and other parties within several states over the course of four and half years.
Recently on 2nd November BJP announced its first list of 177 candidates for the upcoming Madhya Pradesh assembly elections. On the very same day before announcing the names Party chief Amit Shah met with PM Narendra Modi, senior ministers Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj and other members of the Central Election Committee.
Current chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who has been at the helm of power since 2005 in the state, will be looking to retain the chair for the fourth time in a row and will be contesting from Budhni while veteran leader and state minister Yashodhara Raje Scindia will be contesting from Shivpuri.
The saffron ruled state is going to polls on November 28 and the results will be announced on December 11.
In 2013 Vidhan Sabha Elections, BJP bagged 165 seats, while the Congress could manage 57 seats. The Bahujan Samaj Party, meanwhile, grabbed four seats.
CONGRESS IS STANDING FIRM
Ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls a win Madhya Pradesh would help Congress pose as an umbrella party within the united opposition. Without having Congress onboard it would also send out a message that there could be no opposition alliance
Currently, Congress sees its presence in four states and Union territories, Punjab, Karnataka, Pondicherry, and Mizoram (which is also heading for polls). A win in MP will surely elevate them from a dingy position. Congress President Rahul Gandhi has been campaigning intensely in the state and is expected to hold more rounds of public addresses as the polling date arrives closer.
But all in all, it would be very interesting to see the battle as quiet popular Krishna Katha orator Devkinandan’s party would be challenging the Party with the PM’s face. It also came in front that as usual Prime Minister would be the star campaigner for BJP and will be devoting at least five days for Madhya Pradesh election campaign. But on the other hand, Devkinandan have already initiated implementing his strategic plan for his debut electoral. As he has already witnessed a quiet lot of popularity about which one can boast after his protests against the SC-ST ACT and Bharat Band. Therefore no doubt this year’s electoral results are much awaited comparatively.
