Banking on the Confidence that Congress will form the next government in the Centre, Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot on Tuesday claimed that Bhartiya Janta Party is under immense pressure currently as its allies are deserting the coalition.
Pilot alleged that the BJP’s allies were quitting the NDA due to the arrogance of saffron party leaders and it is now under pressure which recently reflected in the seat-sharing in Bihar.
The BJP led alliance on Sunday announced the seat-sharing deal in Bihar for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha Polls. Both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Janta Dal(United) will contest 17 seats in Bihar. The remaining 6 seats will be contested by Lok Janshakti Party (LJP).
“TDP and Upendra Kushwaha‘s RLSP already left the alliance while Shiv Sena in Maharashtra also not seems to be with them. And the BJP is under pressure and therefore, they gave 17 seats in Bihar to the JD(U) which has only two MPs. What can be a fine example of insecurity than this” added Pilot, who is also the Congress Chief in Rajasthan.
This full majority government at the centre has become so weak that it has given nearly half of Bihar (Lok Sabha seats) to a party having just two MPs just because of the fear that people are not voting for the BJP and also its allies are daring them. This happens when the government is weak,” Sachin Pilot told news agency PTI.
BJP should accept the fact that it has faced a severe blow in three states and should take responsibility for the defeat.
He further said that the results of the recently held assembly Polls have sent a strong message to the BJP who used to point out the Congress is struggling for survival.
He also said that the victory of Congress in three Hindi Heartland States has boosted the morale of the party workers and they are preparing for the Lok Sabha 2019 Polls.
Apart from forming the government in the three states, we have started working on our Poll Promises. Meetings within the party for upcoming Lok Sabha Polls have already started and we will register a whopping victory in Polls, said Pilot.
