Mahagathbandhan dissolved in Uttar Pradesh, SP BSP alliance called off in up assembly bypoll 2019, mayawati calls so BSP alliance dissolved

The parties which were claiming “ye lamba chalega saath (long lasting alliance)” just ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections have now resorted to “kuch hi dino ka tha saath (short term partnership)”. They couldn’t even stay together for a few months of getting along with each other. Call it Indian Politics or Opportunist Indian Political Parties or Politicians, who can never be friends forever!

Recently formed ‘Mahagathbandhan’ (Grand Alliance) between the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) have broken up and have decided to contest for Uttar Pradesh (UP) bypolls independently.

The so-called ‘Mahagathbandhan’ which claimed to wipe off the already ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in UP, itself seems sinking now.

However, as usual, the broken ties have triggered the blame game between the two parties. BSP supremo Mayawati is blaming SP chief Akhilesh Yadav for losing the seats in UP and for not being able to control the division of Yadav votes.

On the other hand, the SP’s politician blames Mayawati for the poor show of the coalition. An SP Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA), Hariom Yadav, was quoted as saying to news agency ANI that only Mayawati got benefited from the tie-up between SP and BSP. “If the coalition hadn’t happened, Mayawati would have been at 0 and SP would have won 25 seats,” Yadav said, quoted ANI. “[The] Yadav community voted for her but [Mayawati] vote share went to BJP.” added Yadav, quoted ANI.

Apart from these two parties, others believe that it was an opportunistic alliance and the end of alliance was predestined.

Out of UP’s 80 seats, the SP just won 5 seats and the BSP managed to secure 10 seats while RLD couldn’t even open it’s account. Out of the two seats which were left for Congress, Amethi and Raebarli, one seat of Amethi was lost to BJP. Moreover, the BJP won 64 seats out of the 80 seats in UP.

On June 4, Tuesday BSP chief Mayawati has officially broken the ties with it’s ally Samajwadi Party and has confirmed that BSP would independently contest for the forthcoming assembly bypolls in UP.

The Assembly bypolls are to be held in UP for 11 assembly constituencies. These are the constituencies from where the MLA’s are elected in the Lok Sabha elections.

“The bypolls can be announced any moment now. Under present conditions in Uttar Pradesh, we have decided to fight the bypolls, which will happen on some seats, alone,” Mayawati said in a press note.

“If I feel that the SP president is able to fulfil his duties and convert his people into missionaries, then we can still walk together in future. There has been no permanent break as of now,” she added.

Replying to the BSP chief, Akhilesh Yadav said, “If the gathbandhan (alliance) has disintegrated, or whatever that is being said about the gathbandhan is true, then I will deliberate on it very carefully,” Yadav told reporters in Ghazipur.

“When there is no alliance, we will prepare on our own for the upcoming UP bypolls and contest on all the 11 seats. We will be preparing for it and a decision will be taken after consulting senior members of the party,” he added.

However, talking to reporters in New Delhi, party chief Mayawati said that it is not a permanent break in alliance with the Samajwadi Party and if she feels in future that Akhilesh Yadav succeeds in his political work, the two parties will again work together.

Meanwhile, On Jan 12 this year when the alliance was announced by the SP and BSP chiefs, Mayawati claimed that she and her party is moving ahead of 1995 guest house incident and forming a coalition in the interest of the country. The two parties were looking forward for a “political revolution” which they hoped would “last long”.

“I am moving ahead of the 1995 guest house incident in the interest of the country and to serve the people, who are upset with the BJP’s ‘anti-people’ policies,” BSP supremo Mayawati had said at a press conference back then, which was also attended by SP chief Akhilesh Yadav.

“The SP-BSP tie-up is a natural alliance. Yeh lamba chalega, aagey bhi chalega, Lok Sabha chunav ke baad, UP Assembly mein bhi yeh sthayee chalega (This will last long, even beyond LS polls and in UP Assembly elections),” she said, adding it was a “political revolution”. The so called “political revolution” of Mayawati has dissolved now, resulting in comments like opportunistic coalition, which seems to be true now!
