Congress to form pre poll alliance with BSP ahead of Madhya Pradesh election,hints Kamal Nath

New Delhi: Madhya Pradesh Congress Chief Kamal Nath on Tuesday said that the Congress party is holding discussions with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and other like-minded parties like the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Gondwana Gantantra Party (GGP) to form a pre-poll alliance ahead of the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections that are due by the end of this year.”

“We are holding discussions and we will keep on holding discussions with everybody. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wins because of fragmentation of the opposition votes and that will be stopped. The pre-poll arrangement will not just be based on arithmetic. It will be arithmetic plus politics. In the end, the arrangement that we have will not just be symbolic. It will be something that will yield results,” Nath said.

Kamal Nath also criticized the Shivraj Singh Chauhan led BJP government,”Almost every section of the society is distressed. The farmers, the youth that has nowhere to go, the women against whom crimes are being committed on a daily basis will be our faces,” he said.

When asked about the possibility of opposition parties coming together against BJP ahead of the 2019 general elections, Nath said “There is no one size that fits all. But the BJP claiming that they got a national mandate in 2014 is misleading. They got 31 per cent of the popular votes while 69 per cent people voted against them. Again the opposition votes got fragmented and the BJP got the advantage. We will ensure that this opposition vote does not get fragmented to the advantage of the BJP.”
