The UP Assembly polls are too far, yet it appears they are not much remote. This is so because all political parties are making strategies towards winning the election. Even the ruling saffron party is not looking sure of its massive win this time. Its CM is still not clear, though every politically conscious voter can fathom the reality.
The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) is desperate for Brahmin votes. Its heavyweight Satish Mishra has made a move in that direction. No other political party has such a face. He stands more influential than the popular Congress leader Pramod Tiwari.
Undoubtedly, it is the BSP that comes in the present political scenario after skull-capped Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM. Both the parties are, as political experts clarify, working as BJP’s B-Team. Now, BSP National General Secretary Satish Mishra has outrightly rejected a political alliance with the AIMIM. He even said he knows the AIMIM has jumped into the UP elections at whose behest.
On BSP’s political alliance, he pointed out it remains a very bad experience. Recalling the year 2007, he maintains that his party will fight the biggest State’s elections independently. He did not fail to say that the BSP’s alliance had been solemnised with the common man. The Brahmin community has firmly stood with his party.
Contrary to his views, Owaisi is seeing no harm in making political alliances with whosoever offers him a timely chance. Is it not so emphatically?
If the AIMIM and BSP are in the political battle for helping the ruling saffron party, are they dividing the Brahmin votes and Muslim votes? This is a moot question in political parlance. On one side, Brahmins are minorities in the Hindu community while on another hand, Muslims are minorities openly in the country’s populace. Just as about 12% of Brahmin votes hold importance to every political party, as does a considerable number of the Muslim votes both in western and eastern UP to sway the elections, as experts believe strongly.
These votes go to every prominent party in the state. Even the Samajwadi Party has been willing to secure the Brahmin votes and supposedly feared the division of its Muslim votes. Possibly, it is because of this featured fear that it could venture to fly a green kite near the electoral encounters. Without an iota of doubt, there is a thoughtful approach among the experienced politicians that at least the unstable, emotional, speculative and unpredictable votes should not divide at any cost.
