- You are in the process of becoming a king maker in Goa
- In UP, Mayawati engaged in making Dalit-Brahmin equation
The assembly elections of Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur have been formally announced on Saturday. With this announcement, the model code of conduct has come into force in five states. Voting is starting from February 10 and the results of all the states will be out on March 10.
UP’s political riots
The term of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly is ending on 14 May 2022. In such a situation, before May 14, the process of forming the assembly and the new government has to be completed. There are total 403 assembly seats in Uttar Pradesh. The last election was held in February-March 2017 and BJP led NDA returned to power winning 325 seats and Yogi Adityanath was sworn in as Chief Minister on 19 March 2017. CM Yogi is the first BJP leader, who completed his five-year term in Uttar Pradesh and the party is contesting the elections by putting forward his face. In such a situation it is a test of fire for them.
Political turmoil in UP
BJP has entered the field of UP elections in 2022 in alliance with Apna Dal (S) and Nishad Party. From Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Union Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP leaders have given full force to save the BJP’s power in the state. At the same time, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav has come down with small parties with caste basis in the state to fight the BJP. In UP, the SP formed an alliance with about a dozen small parties including RLD, SubhaSP, Praspa, Janwadi Party, Mahan Dal.
Congress has entered the UP elections under the leadership of Priyanka Gandhi. Priyanka is playing the women’s card and has made all the announcements for her from giving 40 percent tickets. At the same time, the 2022 election is being considered important for Dalit politics along with BSP. BSP chief Mayawati has not forged an alliance with any party and, like in 2007, is trying to create a Brahmin-Dalit equation. Apart from this, Asaduddin Owaisi in UP is desperate to establish his foothold in the state with the help of Muslim votes.
Who will form the government in Uttarakhand
The term of the 70-seat Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly is ending on 23 March 2022. But, the political stir is intensifying in the state. Here along with Congress and BJP, Aam Aadmi Party, BSP and many smaller parties are trying their luck. In such a situation, Uttarakhand election remains the most challenging for BJP, because the tradition of changing the power here every five years has been going on for two decades. In such a situation, Congress is seeing hope of making its return to power, while BJP is busy breaking the myth of change of power.
In the 2017 assembly elections in Uttarakhand, BJP formed the government with a thumping majority by winning 57 seats, while the opposition Congress got 11 seats. Trivendra Singh Rawat became the Chief Minister, but after removing him after four years, the BJP handed over the command of power to Tirath Singh Rawat and in just a few months, Pushkar Singh Dhami was made the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand in place of Rawat. In this way, this election remains very challenging for Pushkar Dhami.
Will Congress survive in Punjab?
Out of the seven states in which elections are to be held in the year 2022, Punjab is the only state where the Congress is in power. The term of the Punjab Assembly ends on March 27, 2022, due to which elections are to be held at the beginning of the year. Congress is struggling under the leadership of CM Charanjit Singh Channi and state president Navjot Singh Siddu to maintain its power in the state, while the Aam Aadmi Party is in the process of becoming number one from number two this time. On the other hand, Akali Dal has joined hands with BSP, while BJP has forged an alliance with the party of Captain Amarinder Singh and Sukhdev Dhidsa.
Sukhbir Badal and Charanjit Singh Channi
Let us inform that in the 2017 assembly elections in 117-seat Punjab, the Congress returned to power after ten years by winning 77 seats, while the Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP was reduced to only 18 seats and the Aam Aadmi Party became the main opposition party by winning 20 seats. Captain Amarinder Singh became the Chief Minister, but after four years, the Congress replaced Captain Amarinder and made Charanjit Singh Channi the Chief Minister. To form the government in Punjab, any party or alliance has to get the figure of 59.
Political battle in Manipur
The tenure of the 60-seat Manipur Legislative Assembly of the Northeast ends on March 19, 2022. In such a situation, before this the process of government formation in the state will have to be completed. In the 2017 Manipur Assembly elections, BJP emerged as the single largest party by winning 24 seats and Congress became the opposition party with 17 MLAs. BJP formed the government with the support of NPP, LJP and independent MLAs and N Birender Singh became the Chief Minister. In such a situation, the BJP has once again given its full strength to keep the power of Manipur alive, while the Congress is desperate to return to power.
Whose power this time in Goa?
The term of the 40-seat Goa Legislative Assembly ends on March 15. The last assembly elections in the state were held in February 2017. Congress emerged as the single largest party by winning 15 seats, but could not form the government. BJP won 13 seats and managed to form the government with the support of MGP, GFP and two independent MLAs. Manohar Parrikar became the Chief Minister of Goa, but after the death of Manohar Parrikar on 17 March 2019, Dr. Pramod Sawant became the Chief Minister of the state.
Goa elections are to be held in early 2022, but this time not only Congress and BJP but also Mamata Banerjee’s TMC and Aam Aadmi Party have come to try their luck. BJP is in power in Goa for the last 10 years, due to which it is also facing anti-incumbency wave. In such a situation, BJP President JP Nadda is throwing full force. At the same time, Congress is scrambling to return to power, but TMC has become the biggest obstacle in its path. Many Congress leaders have left the party and joined TMC. Even though the common man could not open an account in 2017, this time he is trying to become a kingmaker.
