Thumbs down Modi vs Rest: Biggest anti-BJP unity show since 1996. Will it hold till 2019?

Modi vs Rest: Biggest anti-BJP unity show since 1996. Will it hold till 2019?

Looks like all who are corrupt and have looted the Indian public are coming together as Modi has stopped their corruption and the people are rejecting them. Good signs for India as this shows that all the corrupt goons are shit scared of their relevance and existence in a progressing India.

BENGALURU: The idea of a grand anti-BJP coalition emerging before next
year’s Lok Sabha polls appeared to be on a firmer footing on Wednesday
when almost all the non-BJP parties came together here to celebrate the
inauguration of the JD(S)-Congress coalition government, raising the
prospect of a mouth-watering ‘Modi versus Rest’ contest in 2019.

Barring Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik, who decided to stay away, and his
Telangana counterpart K Chandrashekhar Rao who had visited H D
Kumaraswamy and his father H D Deve Gowda on Tuesday, leaders of
most non-BJP parties were present to mark the launch of a regime hastily
forged to stop the saffron party from wresting control of Karnataka.

The oath-taking ceremony of CM Kumaraswamy and his deputy, Congress’ G Parmeshwara, on the lawns of the imposing
Vidhan Soudha marked the first time that the entire phalanx of outfits had come together on one platform. Most of them have
little in common but for an intense and still-growing desire to stop Prime Minister Modi from getting a second term. The parallel
with the Kumbh, when people of different persuasions and divergent sects come together, was obvious and irresistible. The
difference was that those present on the big dais were motivated by clear-eyed political calculations rather than hope of any
spiritual salvation.

This was the biggest gathering of anti-BJP forces since 1996 when the first such grouping emerged as the single largest group
in Lok Sabha.

The context itself was the biggest give-away. BJP may have fallen tantalizingly short of a clearly majority, but its performance
defied the estimates of Congress, JD(S) and other opponents. The strong saffron showing underlined that Modi’s pull remains
strong, and that Amit Shah has turned BJP into an electoral machine which can encash this asset even on terrains that are not
too friendly.

The resultant anxiety caused a chastened Congress to rush to pledge support to Kumaraswamy and West Bengal CM Mamata
Banerjee to share the same dais with CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury and Kerala’s Marxist chief minister Pinarayi

UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, who had played the sheet-anchor of unity efforts when faced with a similar challenge of saffron
ascendancy in 2004, seemed ready to perform the same role. The former Congress boss, who lost no time in calling up JD(S)
patriarch, former PM H D Deve Gowda, to offer Congress’s support to the latter’s son, warmly reached out to others, engaging
Lalu Prasad’s son and successor-designate, former deputy CM of Bihar Tejashwi Yadav, in a lively conversation and showed
conviviality towards others.

But it was her geniality towards BSP Mayawati that was most striking, with the BSP boss fully reciprocating. In the post-event
photo-op, Sonia was the pivotal figure, once again paying special attention to the Dalit czarina. She asked RLD leader Ajit Singh
to step aside to make way for Mayawati to come in the front.

The Congress chief was also quick to take Mayawati’s hand to raise it high while asking Sharad Pawar to do the same.
In contrast, Rahul seemed subdued: something attributed to the disappointment over the party’s defeat and the possible
awkwardness in being friendly with opposition grandees decades senior to him.

Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati looked comfortable, while the presence of Ajit Singh along with the two UP satraps pointed to
the challenge that BJP faces in next week’s by-poll for Kairana Lok Sabha constituency in west UP.
