Will Atul Anjaan Contest from Ghosi ?

October 30 2018

Birds from Lucknow whisper that SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and Congress prez Rahul Gandhi recently had a long telephonic talk. They say that Rahul has made it clear to Akhilesh that whether SP agrees about a grand alliance in UP, including Congress and Ajit Singh’s Rashtriya Lok Dal, it is absolutely necessary for SP and BSP to stand together to crush the BJP in 2019 polls. It is known that BSP chief Mayawati has agreed to announce an alliance with SP in coming January, but she is not keen about RLD and Congress. It is in this context that Rahul has told Akhilesh that Congress might go it alone in UP, but will only put up candidates in its strong seats. Recall that in the last LS by-polls of 3 seats, Congress had put up a candidate only in Gorakhpur. Akhilesh on his part has assured Rahul that even if the Congress is left out in an alliance in UP, his party or the BSP will not put up candidates from Sonia Gandhi’s Amethi and Rahul’s Rae Bareli. And leftist leader Atul Anjaan will contest from Ghosi.
For the moment it is clear sailing for Mayawati and Akhilesh, much reprieved with the lenses of the CBI focused internally rather than on them.
