Setback for opposition as RLP in Rajasthan and Nishad party in UP join hands with BJP

Praveen Nishad had won the Gorakhpur bypolls as a SP-Nishad joint candidate after five-time MP Yogi Adityanath became the CM of UP. Praveen joining BJP is a major setback for SP-BSP alliance in the state.

As the elections are approaching, the BJP has exhibited exceptional dexterity in stitching its alliance with the potential coalition partners, while the Congress has remained lackadaisical in shoring itself up for the upcoming elections. In fact, prominent Congress leaders have deserted the party and joined the opposition ranks, leaving the party in disarray.

Recently, an Ex-AICC secretary resigned from Congress, alleging the party is selling Lok Sabha tickets. Earlier, senior Congress leader Tom Vadakkan had also resigned from the party.

Whereas on the other hand, BJP has been quite aggressive in building alliances with the regional parties. The saffron party has formed an alliance with the Nishad Party in Uttar Pradesh as the chief of Nishad Party, Gorakhpur MP Praveen Nishad has joined the BJP.

It is notable here that Praveen Nishad had won the bypolls in Gorakhpur in 2017 with the support of SP, BSP and other opposition parties. Praveen Nishad was fielded against the BJP candidate as a joint candidate of Nishad Party and SP. The seat was vacant after its five-time MP Yogi Adityanath became the CM of UP.

With elections just days away, the BJP has dealt a heavy blow to Congress in Rajasthan as well by joining hands with Hanuman Beniwal’s RLP. Under this alliance, the BJP will leave one seat of Nagaur from the state’s 25 for the RLP. MLA Beniwal himself will contest the election on this seat.

Union Minister and party’s election in-charge Prakash Javadekar and Beniwal announced this at a joint press conference at the BJP office. Javadekar said that this alliance has been done for the Lok Sabha elections under which the party will offer Nagaur seat to the RLP.

In return, RLP will support the BJP in Rajasthan, along with in the neighbouring states like Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and Delhi, and will help in promoting its candidates. Hanuman Beniwal’s RLP party has an impact on about 9 Lok Sabha seats.

Hanuman Beniwal claimed that Congress while working in power, has worked to rob the country. “To save the nation, we have a coalition with the BJP. Along with Rajasthan, millions of RLP workers in the adjoining states will join Narendra Modi from today,” he said. At the same time, he also said that the nation is paramount for him and he will put all his strength to make Narendra Modi Prime Minister again. Beniwal asserted that the alliance will win all the 25 seats of Rajasthan.

Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said that they are very happy that Hanuman Beniwal’s RLP has agreed to join the alliance. “We have urged Hanuman Beniwal to contest the Nagaur election and promote BJP candidates on other seats.

Before the assembly elections in December last year, Beniwal had formed his party RLP which won three seats. Until a few days ago, he was talking about contesting the elections in conjunction with the Congress party and the Third Front parties. Beniwal was an erstwhile BJP member. In 2008, he became MLA on a BJP ticket, but in 2013, he came to the Assembly as an Independent candidate.
