In the recently concluded assembly elections of 5 states, BJP has registered a big victory in 4 states. Bharatiya Janata Party workers are very excited by the victory of these states, whose direct benefit can be given to the party in the upcoming assembly elections and the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Especially the victory of Uttar Pradesh means a lot for the BJP. The people of Uttar Pradesh have stamped the tenure of the Yogi government for 5 years. The people of the Samajwadi Party, who fought the elections very strongly in front of the BJP, were rejected by the public.
The way Akhilesh Yadav formed a strong alliance against the BJP in UP and raised major issues like inflation, and unemployment in the elections, the people of UP still expressed confidence in the double engine government of CM Yogi and PM Modi. The defeat of Akhilesh Yadav in UP has dealt a blow to the opposition’s formula of defeating Modi in 2024. If Akhilesh was successful in defeating BJP this time in UP, then in 2024, the opposition would have entered the election field against Modi with full force, although before the 2024 elections, in 2023, including Gujarat, Himachal, many states will have assembly elections. are remaining.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Telangana Chief Minister KCR, NCP chief Sharad Pawar, and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin are trying their best to challenge Prime Minister Modi in 2024. Mamata Banerjee and Arvind Kejriwal are encouraged by the victory of TMC in Bengal and the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab, while KCR is also exploring its possibilities for 2024.
After the victory of the BJP in UP, Mamta Banerjee even suggested to all the opposition parties to unite against the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections. After losing power in Punjab and badly losing elections in UP, Congress has started churning for the Lok Sabha elections. Prashant Kishor himself put an end to the speculation of election strategist Prashant Kishor going to Congress. In such circumstances, how Congress can challenge the BJP in 2024, will be a matter to be seen.
If we talk about the formula of regional parties uniting and challenging the BJP, the SP-BSP alliance, the biggest experiment in UP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, was rejected outright by the public. In such a situation, the biggest question arises even if all these opposition parties (in which the influence of most of the parties is limited to their state) come together, then how big a challenge can BJP get from these parties? For example, if we talk about how effective TMC will be in UP, SP in Maharashtra or any other state, NCP in Bengal, and how much public support KCR will be able to get outside Telangana, it will be a matter to be seen! Since these parties will have a direct competition with the BJP in their own state, how will these parties be able to easily defeat the BJP without the support of the Congress party? Some states like Maha Vikas Aghadi alliance in Maharashtra, Congress + TRS in Telangana, TMC + Congress in West Bengal, DMK + Congress in Tamil Nadu, UDF alliance in Kerala, Congress + JDS in Karnataka, Congress + National Conference in Jammu and Kashmir, North If there is an alliance of Congress + SP + RLD + SubhaSP in the state and RJD + Congress in Bihar, then surely there can be a strong alliance against the BJP!
Although there is no doubt that strong regional parties in their state can challenge the BJP on their own in 2024 as well. But the alliance of these regional parties with the Congress can perform well in the states where the Congress also has a good support base. Popularity is intact, people are voting in favor of the BJP, the issue of Hindutva is a big factor in the politics of the country today, the general public is getting the benefits of the beneficial schemes of the central government, even now PM Modi’s The absence of a strong opposition face in front makes Prime Minister Modi’s claim in the 2024 elections even stronger.
