The hand’s strength

May 13 2012

The Congress in Uttarkhand wants to kill two birds with one stone. It is believed that the party managers have made it clear to Vijay Bahuguna that instead of winning a seat from a by-election by having a party Assembly member to resign, he should try his tactics with a BJP Assembly member and weave his magic on him so that the person vacates his seat. The BJP and Congress stand almost neck-to-neck where the numbers in Assembly are concerned. Learning from Karnataka (where the chief minister from BJP lost the Assembly polls), the Congress doesn’t want to be in the same situation. In any case, Narendra Nagar Assembly member Subodh Uniyal, Vijay Pal Singh Sajwan from Gangotri and Anusuya Das Mekhuri from Karnaprayag are ready to ask for Bahuguna’s resignation. But the Congress is eyeing the seats of BJP leaders such as Sahdev Singh Pundir from Sahaspur and Rajesh Shukla from Kichha and the election game will start as soon as the circular is passed. It remains to be seen if the hand will crush the lotus.
