A new spirit has started in Mahavikas Aghadi. There is a dispute over who is older and who is younger. Younger-elder brother can be determined by date of birth; But that criterion does not apply to parties. Senior leader Ashok Chavan’s argument that ‘we are sesame brothers’ in the small-big debate seemed appropriate to put a curtain on the debate; But it is unlikely to be accepted by all three parties. The second challenge is that Prithviraj Baba decided Matoshree as Dhakali Pati by first NCP then Congress and finally Shiv Sena. Congress and NCP are together making Thackeray’s Shiv Sena small.
While there was sympathy for Thackeray, the question of how to belittle him, how to reduce his importance, was bothering the BJP. To solve this problem, Congress and NCP are helping BJP as if by themselves. The sympathy towards Thackeray is a big factor for the Mahavikas Aghadi and it has made his image bigger than the leaders of the allied parties. If Thackeray is considered the leader of Mavia, then the leadership of Mavia will go to his party. So again we have to sit at number two, three. Leaders of Congress and NCP do not want this, that is why Thackeray has started to belittle him. That is what BJP wants.
Before all this started, it was written here about two months ago that there will be a dispute in Mahavikas Aghadi over who is small and who is big. The other two are not ready to give Chief Ministership or Lok Sabha seats to Shiv Sena of 15 MLAs and 5 MPs. Also happening.
Shiv Sena, which has no idea of its strength, is stuck on the basis of past glory. Some say that ‘we three brothers live together, only the kitchen is different’; Separation of the three is the next stage. Mahavikas Aghadi is currently in the phase of having a kitchen. At the national level, when all the parties are uniting against the BJP, the leaders of Mavia in Maharashtra have started criticizing each other. Maviya could not take advantage of the combined advantage of the anti-BJP atmosphere in Maharashtra, when this analysis comes out it will be too late.
Maharashtra gave the country a model in 2019 that parties of different views can come to power together against the BJP. Believing that the conch sound to pull down the BJP from power can come from Maharashtra, veteran leaders from across the country are coming to Mumbai to meet Sharad Pawar and Uddhav Thackeray.
Nitish Kumar, Tejashwi Yadav, Arvind Kejriwal, Bhagwant Mann, three Chief Ministers and Deputy Chief Ministers came and went. Some more leaders will come. On the one hand, the leaders of the country feel this belief about Maharashtra, but the leaders of the Mahavikas Aghadi are going around praising each other.
This contradiction is unsettling to Mahavikas Aghadi activists and voters. After the Karnataka result, the confidence of the Congress has increased a lot. Congress will not agree to face elections under the leadership of Thackeray. Even NCP will not accept it. Collective leadership can be the only solution.
That discussion is on the path of BJPThe Lok Sabha elections are ten months away. There are 17 more months to the assembly elections. Then why the discussion of space allocation in Maviya from now? If it is decided from now which constituency belongs to which of the three parties, it can be a danger for Mahavikas Aghadi. Therefore, BJP will get an accurate estimate of which party will contest in which constituency and which candidate can be there 8-9 months in advance and it will be easy to decide its candidate. While it is true that Maviya will have more time to prepare, his party did not get a seat; But the willing leaders will be able to join the BJP’s neck. It should also be checked that there is no machination of someone from outside or insider behind the negotiation of seat sharing now.
