SP and BSP uniting
Both SP and BSP parties are two different side of a coin, which was not supposed to be at one side, Both parties did hate politics for decades against each other.
The irony is that the regional parties like BSP, SP, TMC etc., wants Mahagathbandhan without congress which congress wants to support because congress wants to defeat BJP.
In case the NDA does not get to power , we may see a Khichdi government at center and subsequent polls as the Khichdi government may not long last.
Giving an official role to Priyanka is a tactical move with an immediate goal to create hurdles for Mayawati while having almost no impact on Akhilesh.
Instead of opposing or abusing Narendra Modi or BJP, Mayawati must exploit the present opportunity in UP and must grow her political stature and relevance.
It isn’t a guarantee that an alliance will necessarily work in 2019.
After Congress, BJP needs to take regional political parties as a strong opposition.
