    Can we see some good signs of Opposition Unity?

    Recent reports indicate some kind of talks between various leaders, including Mayawathi and the Telengana Chief Minister, Ms Mamtha Bannerjee, and so on, some sort of common minimum program, to take on the BJP, as a big front.

    Will this really work out? There is some apprehension that the Congress needs to be part of it. Some people talk about a third front? If there is a third front, will not the BJP win hands down? Mr Modi is still considered a very honest leader, as can be seen by some survey or the other.

    Since there is no leader, even from the Congress, who can challenge him, will not the Opposition unity be crucial? If yes, should such a front include the Congress?

    There will be interesting possibilities. What will really happen?

    We already have discussed a lot in this context but still I would like to know the opinion of the author whether he is in agreement with the opposition parties or not. The BJP President, during one his interviews has admitted that there could be a setback in the UP because of the alliance of the BSP & the SP but for the rest of the states this has been a failure. And so when this is already known to them they must be with some sort of strategy to manage the things.

    Now as on today the situation is that the mighty BJP is on one side and all other parties including Congress and splinter regional parties on the other. Why because there must be a national party which must be a leader so that other parties can follow and agree to the common minimum program. But Congress is going from bad to worse and hence KCR has hit upon the idea that why not regional parties this time boss over the national party and be a alternate to Congress. Why because, for KCR he cannot think of Congress as his boss nor the AP CM Chandrababu Naidu who is dead against Congress because, it has not supported or fulfilled the special status to AP and Naidu feels that because of Congress the AP was made into two parts. So many local issues in different states would compel the regional parties either to tie with BJP or the Congress and cannot fight alone with National parties.

    I personally feel that thè Congress should be part of Opposition unity. However, I do not know how many parties will accept this.

    But Congress has created its own enemies across the country. For TRS, for TDP and many regional parties, Congress is the untouchable and they cannot sail with it.

    BJP and Congress are the two national parties. BJP top leader is a strong man and he has a good following in the voters. The Congress party leader is not that matured and he is the boss, not because of his stature but because of his family. The other parties are regional parties or parties with a hold in a few states only. So if all these parties become together and if they can win a few seats but in other states, they split the votes and it will become an advantage to mostly the ruling party.
    In the third front, the so-called big leaders of each party wanted to be the strong man in the government and there will be a confrontation among themselves and they may not last long. This we have seen earlier in Centre when Deva Gowda was the Prime Minister. For the independence, safety and development the centre should be strong. Otherwise, the country will not progress. So it is better to have a strong Centre.

    always confident
