Congress-SP Alignment: ‘Time Pass Mechanism’, in which SP will pass But Congress Will Fail

Logic behind the alignment between Indian National Congress (I) and Samajwadi Party (Socialist Party) is very clear and visible. Both parties desperately looking to avoid election as their principle enemies i.e. BJP (for Congress) and BSP (for SP) are having upper hand over them.

Samajwadi Party’s support will help Congress-run United Progressive Alliance (UPA) to go ahead with Indo-US Civilian Nuclear Energy Deal and save lose of face globally.

Meanwhile, the arrangement will help Samajwadi Party more as compare to Congress as Mulayam Singh will able to use power for benefits of his party in order to make strong ground before upcoming Lok Sabha Election and compete with powerful Mayawati.

On the other hand, Congress has to be accept junior partner’s position in UP and have to pay for all this mess.

Political Theory

There is a new theory circulating in political circles of New Delhi. According to this theory, Left parties has pushed Samajwadi Party towards Congress in order to avoid early election and save their own face as they can’t support government, which is firm to go ahead with Indo-US deal.

If this is right, than it turns all things into ‘Two Party Zero Sum Game’, clearly the gain of Left-Samajwadi combine is exact lose of Congress.

If Left wants to withdrawn support, then they can do it on the basis of inflation, their favorite issue. This helps them to gain lost ground among people. But, they have some other plans,” a senior Lawyer, who worked with Indira Gandhi, said during an informal discussion on the issue.

I personally think that we dont have a choice but to have nuclear we ARE a growing country and are energy needs ( allready not fullfilled) are going to increase...SO, therefore the left, if it is so concerned about the janta should allow the deal with certain conditons like making sure that after 10 years the nuclear plants are closed FOR SURE. Also that the plants are safe and dnt create an enviormental problems here.
Politically speaking the commercialisation of communism in India has left no choice with our left parties, but to withdraw support from the congres.

Good analysis, I think Left will have to pay for their pro China and impractical decisions. People will reject left in the forthcoming elections.

Pal. You are right. N-deal will address our energy needs and it should be signed after considering N-security concerns.

Meanwhile, Left's opposition is not fact or rational driven. They have some other considerations.

Thanks for commenting.
