Another one bites the dust? Akhilesh Yadav unhappy with Congress attitude in forging mahagathbandhan

The Mahagathbandhan or the Grand Alliance is beginning to crash even before its actual inception, as the proposed allies seem to be casting aspersions on this idea. According to the reports, this time it is Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav who appears to be unhappy over Congress attitude ahead of the elections.

Just a day after Bahujan Samajwadi Party leader Mayawati thrashed Congress Party and rejected any alliance with the grand old party in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday has called the Congress to take the initiative to bring anti-BJP parties on one platform in poll-bound states.

Akhilesh Yadav expressing his displeasure over the delay by the Congress to bring like-minded parties said that the delay in this regard might prompt other parties to declare their candidates for the upcoming assembly elections in both states. He further expressed fear over the delay as it might hamper the so-called ‘Mahagathbandan’.

Yadav said, “I am saying even today that the Congress should show its large-heartedness, and it should contest elections by taking along all the political parties who have similar thoughts and ideology”. He further went on to mock Congress saying that the party will be accusing other political parties of colluding with BJP after they decide to contest alone. He was referring to the failure of the Congress to stitch an alliance with BSP, which is now fighting alone in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

The cracks in Mahagathbandhan has already appeared, as BSP supremo in a press conference slammed Congress and called Congress leader Digvijaya Singh as a ‘BJP agent’. She had accused the Congress of playing minority appeasement and also using Dalits but not doing anything substantial for their development.

Incidentally, this comes after Akhilesh Yadav had asked for a much larger role in the alliance and had demanded an all India pact with Congress rather than just a coalition in Uttar Pradesh. The Samajwadi Party leaders had argued that the alliance between the party and Congress is not a one-way traffic and cannot be formed for the convenience of the Congress.
