Why are Mamta Banerjee and Mayawati not showing interest in the unity of the opposition? -aabtak24


On June 23, a meeting of non-BJP parties was held in Patna, the capital of Bihar. In this meeting, from Rahul to Kejriwal and from Mamta to Akhilesh, top leaders of about 15 opposition parties were present. All these parties came together with only one objective, to try to prepare a strong opposition to defeat the current government led by Narendra Modi in the Lok Sabha elections to be held in the year 2024.

There is a discussion in the political corridors that in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party will be given ‘one is to one’. Will challenge the formula. Which means that in 450 Lok Sabha seats, the opposition will field only one candidate against the BJP candidate.

Not only this, BSP did not participate in this meeting. In such a situation, the question arises that why big leaders like Mayawati and Mamta Banerjee are not showing interest in opposition unity, what is Mamta Banerjee’s formula against BJP?

Why BSP supremo Mayawati remained absent from the meeting 

However, from Mayawati’s recent statements, it seems that now the BSP chief’s mind has started changing. On Wednesday, a BSP-like press note was issued, which clearly states that the BSP is eyeing opposition unity.

At the same time, recently, Mayawati not only supported the controversy over Rahul Gandhi’s statements in America, but also seemed to match the tone. 

Mamata Banerjee’s formula against BJP in Lok Sabha elections

Karnataka assembly elections, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said that we will support the party in those states where the Congress has strong roots. The Congress, in turn, will have to support regional parties in states where they have strong strongholds.

Mamata wants to limit Congress to 200 Lok Sabha seats

According to Mamta Banerjee, the Congress party is strong in about 200 Lok Sabha seats including Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Gujarat. They should field their strong candidates on these seats so that a tough challenge can be given to the BJP. While Congress should keep aside in West Bengal, UP and Bihar and support the local party here. 

Congress has direct fight with BJP on these seats

The 162 Lok Sabha seats shown above are such where the contest is going to be between Congress and BJP only. Apart from this, 38 Lok Sabha seats are included in those states, where regional parties are in a strong position, but on these seats the competition is with the Congress. 

In which Punjab has 4 out of 13 Lok Sabha seats, Maharashtra 14 out of 48, UP 5 out of 80, Bihar 4 out of 40 Lok Sabha seats, Telangana 6 out of 17 Lok Sabha seats and Andhra Pradesh and Kerala 5 seats are. 

What were the results of these 200 seats in the last  Lok Sabha elections 

In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, out of the 200 seats mentioned above, the BJP managed to win 168 seats and the Congress was able to win only 25 seats. Whereas 7 seats were won by other parties. 

In the Lok Sabha elections held in the year 2019, out of these 200 seats, BJP was successful in winning 178 seats. While  Congress got only 16 seats and 6 seats went to the accounts of other parties.

Congress will have to sacrifice these seats for opposition unity 

If the opposition goes ahead with Mamata Banerjee’s formula, the Congress will have to distance itself from West Bengal, which has 42 Lok Sabha seats, 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh and all 40 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar. 

Will the Congress party agree to Mamata Banerjee’s formula?

On the other hand, if Congress contests elections on fewer seats following Mamata Banerjee’s formula and regional parties succeed in winning more seats, then the regional parties may have an upper hand, these regional parties will throw Congress out of the race for the post of PM. may unite to keep.

All eyes on this state

In the Lok Sabha elections held in the year 2019, NDA got 39 out of 40 seats in Bihar. In this, BJP got 24 percent votes, while its main ally JDU got about 22 percent and LJP got 8 percent votes. But JDU and BJP parted ways a few years ago. After the separation of the two, the political equation in the state has completely changed.
