The politics of manipulation has already started before the results of the Lok Sabha election 2019. UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi has become active to unite the opposition parties and Telangana Chief Minister KCR is engaged in the government’s exercise of the Third Front. To prevent Narendra Modi from coming back to power in the midst of all this, on the lines of the Congress Karnatak model, the government can bet on the formation of the Center. Although the Congress’s first attempt is to create a government of itself with opposition parties.
Prior to the last and seventh phase of the general elections, Congress General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad gave a big political signal. He is the first Congress leader who said that after the results, if his party was not offered the Prime Minister’s post, the Congress would not make it an issue, but we will not be able to obstruct any other leader to become the Prime Minister. The aim of the Congress is to overthrow the peasant and anti-people BJP government.
Gulab Nabi Azad said that if a coalition government will be formed at the center and it will be formed with the support of anti-BJP parties. If the Congress joining the government, then the party will not make it a matter of prestige. They claim that neither the BJP nor the NDA will come to power at the Center. Azad’s statement can be clearly understood that the Congress will not be able to fight for the post of Prime Minister, but to prevent Modi, the opposition can work on the strategy of forming a government.
In fact, the Karnataka model can get stakes in the center to prevent Congress BJP from coming to power. In the Karnataka assembly elections, BJP got the highest number of seats and the number of seats was Congress second and JDS was at number three. No party got any majority in the state. In such a situation, the Congress had formed a government by giving CM’s post despite having fewer JDS seats to stop BJP from coming to power. Although the governor had given the BJP first to the formation of the government, he could not prove the majority.
In the Lok Sabha elections, the way opposition parties have fought elections against Narendra Modi. There were not enough parties in the leadership of the Congress, which led to several states including Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh, where the Congress had to go to the electoral battle alone alone. Though the Congress expects that after 2004 elections all these parties of the opposition will unite and work to stop Modi from joining the government.
In fact, it is believed that no party is going to get a single majority in the Lok Sabha elections this time. In such a scenario, Congress is making the first attempt to form its government on the lines of 2004. In view of this, Sonia Gandhi, on Wednesday, called the leaders of all the opposition parties and asked that they are in Delhi on May 22, 23 and 24.
In the past, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu met Congress President Rahul Gandhi and discussed the meeting of Leader of Opposition leaders before the result. Naidu has convened a meeting on May 21, on which many leaders had refused to join the meeting before May 23. At the same time, Telangana Chief Minister KCR has met with leaders of various parties for the government of the Third Front.
