Bhagwant Mann has now become the new Chief Minister from the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab. The oath of office and secrecy was taken yesterday. Now getting the Aam Aadmi Party the key to power in Punjab has become a problem for the Congress, it is also difficult for the ruling party BJP. Many political experts say that the rise of AAP as a political alternative can add to the troubles of the BJP. Actually, BJP gave a slogan of Congress Mukt Bharat as soon as its government was formed in 2014. However, by this slogan, instead of choosing Congress, you choose BJP. But the victory of the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab did make a Congress-free Punjab, but left nothing for the BJP. In the event of the common man becoming an electoral option, it will be difficult for the BJP, which BJP will never want. To understand why BJP should be concerned with the rise of Aam Aadmi Party? In what way are you a problem for the BJP, replacing the Congress? Should the rise of AAP be seen as trouble for regional parties too?
Khela Pe Khela is happening in Congress. In Punjab, inside the party, the door of defeat is being blown on each other. On the other hand, someone wants to see Sonia Gandhi become the party president, someone suggests the name of Rahul Gandhi and there is a section which says that a Congress leader from outside the Gandhi family should be seated in the chair. People know this faction by the name of G-23. You can also call it a group of dissidents, who often keep their point of view against the party. Now when it was decided two days ago that Sonia Gandhi would continue to be the President of Congress, the leaders of G-23 had expressed their dissent about it. Kapil Sibal said a day ago that the reins of Congress should be given to someone outside the Gandhi family. But after this statement there was a ruckus in the party itself. Many leaders including Salman Khurshid, Mallikarjun Kharge started surrounding Sibal.
Now a meeting of G-23 was called in the midst of all these. Earlier this meeting was to be held at Kapil Sibal’s house but then the venue shifted to Ghulam Nabi Azad’s house. The meeting started in the evening and the meeting lasted for five hours. So what were discussed during the meeting and what was the essence? A rift that we are seeing in the Congress for the past year and a half, is it getting deeper after the defeat in five states?
BJP has come back to power in Uttarakhand. However, the Chief Minister of the state Pushkar Singh Dhami himself lost the election. This election of 2022 will be known for the falling of many big trees. Not only Pushkar Singh Dhami, but under whose face and leadership Congress fought this assembly election, Congress’s strong leader… Harish Rawat also lost the election. He was in the fray from Lalkua assembly seat. If we look at the political journey of Rawat in the last few days, Rawat has lost many elections in the election field despite being in the race of Chief Minister or being the Chief Minister. Prior to these elections, Rawat had contested from Haridwar Rural and Kichha seats in the 2017 assembly elections. From where he had to lose both the places. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Rawat contested the Lok Sabha elections from Nainital. And defeated here too. In these elections, Harish Rawat was again leading as the face of the party. And was in the fray from Lalkuan seat. But neither Congress could come to power nor Rawat could win the election. The question is that why Harish Rawat, who was one of the favorable faces for the Chief Minister, could not save his seat? What is the reason that despite such a long political innings, Harish Rawat himself has not been able to succeed in electoral politics continuously for some time?
