NDA Vs UPA: If the Congress and all the opposition parties were making any attempt to form a common opposition front against the Narendra Modi government, then the Presidential Election and the Vice Presidential Election in that effort. It has been sabotaged and the opposition parties have suffered the most. Till now, the Chief Minister of West Bengal and Trinamool Congress leader Mamta Banerjee, who is raising the flag of opposition unity.
Mamata’s announcement upset the opposition
Now call it a coincidence or something, but on the day when the counting of votes for the presidential election was going on, on the same day Mamta Banerjee decided to remain neutral in the Vice Presidential election. In other words, Mamta Banerjee has expressed that she will neither support the ruling party’s candidate Jagdeep Dhankhar nor will she vote for the opposition’s presidential candidate Margaret Alva.
In view of Mamata Banerjee’s stand against the Modi government, it was believed that she would support the opposition candidate in the election of the Vice President, but this did not happen and it is evident that the Congress leading the opposition is very upset.
Not coming with Mamta is a big blow to UPA
Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has said that Mamata’s non-compliance is a big blow to opposition unity but it started with the NDA’s nomination of Draupadi Murmu for the presidential election. After making Murmu a candidate, not only non-NDA non-UPA parties like YSR Congress and Biju Janata Dal left the opposition and went in his favor. Rather, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and Shiv Sena also left the opposition.
However, this does not mean that parties like Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and Biju Janata Dal will come with the NDA. By the way, the way many opposition MPs and MLAs cross-voted in favor of Draupadi Murmu in the presidential election, it is not a good sign for opposition unity.
Cross voting spoiled the game
It is believed that 17 MPs and more than 100 MLAs cross-voted in favor of Draupadi Murmu in the presidential election. The effect of the distance in the relationship between Mamata Banerjee and Congress is now visible in Parliament too, where TMC is missing from most of the opposition meetings. now what Narendra Modi For example, this sign is definitely not auspicious for the opposition who is dreaming of challenging a strong leader.
