Top political headlines in 2020 must be very interesting due to coming Assembly Election in two major states of India in addition to the elections of Rajya Sabha
|| TAC News Bureau
The new year 2020 comes with key political development such as Delhi and Bihar Assembly Election along with the coming Rajya Sabha Election.
At one hand the past 2019 did witness the great ‘Political Mahabharat’ in which Narender Modi led BJP could able to gain as many as 303 seats, on the other hand, 2020 comes with some new political twist of coming Assembly election in two major states including the Rajya Sabha Election.
The unprecedented political development in Maharastra and Jharkhand has pushed back BJP two steps behind. At present, the nationwide stir and uproar on the present issue of CAA and NRC along with the wide contradictory statements of Both the Prime Minister and the Home Minister regarding NRC is also a new headache for BJP.
Earlier in 2019 BJP led NDA remarkably achieved more than 350 which is also a commendable victory of a decade in Indian democratic politics. In the row of the political battleground, BJP could manage to retain the power in Arunachal Pradesh but lost in Andhra Pradesh, Sikkim, and Odisha.
In the case of Haryana, the expectation of BJP ruined but Dushyant Chautala’s Jannayak Janata Party (JJP)’s undercover tie-up led the BJP to form the Government again.
Indian politics in the second half of 2019 was witnessed some major decisions like abrogating Article 370 and bifurcation of the state into two Union Territories — J&K and Ladakh.
The tussle over NRC, NPR and CAA still are some burning issues and matter of debate at the present political scenario that could also continue going forward.
In 2020, all eyes of the nation are set to watch the consequences of the Delhi Assembly Election and Assembly Election of Bihar along with the elections to the Upper House of the parliament.
FOOTPRINTS OF BJP IN THE NATIONAL CAPITAL
Despite BJP’s relentless victory across the nation, the national capital of India still lacks the presence of the BJP government in the power.BJP has been out of Delhi’s power corridor since 1998. In the last Assembly election in 2014, AK did sweep in the election pocketing as many as 67 Assembly seats out of 70.
Since 2014, BJP ‘s Delhi state unit has not left a single chance to attack the AAP government on various issues. As per the press conference of Election commission in the recent past, the Assembly Election of Delhi is likely to be held after mid-January.
Amid the pronouncement of Delhi Vidhansabha Election, NAMO has already kicked started the Election Campaign on 22 December in the last year(2019).
Just some days after, AAP also geared towards the election campaign with the party’s new tag line, “Achhe Beete Panch Saal, Lage Raho Kejriwal .”
In the meantime, Aam Aadmi party interestingly hired the nation’s top political strategist, Prashant Kishor who is also the national Vice president of Janta Dal (United) and has been categorically criticizing CAA & NRC even being an Allie in Bihar with BJP.
The role of the congress party in the coming assembly election of Delhi is yet to be observed. After the appointment of Shubash Chopra as the president of DPCC, the party seems to gain its strength. But this strength also at its back foot due to the, as usual, groups inside party circle.
A ROUGH AND NOISY FIGHT HAS BEGUN IN BIHAR
Bihar Assembly election is to be held just after 10 months from now. But a rough and noisy fight has been triggered up in the state on various issues. In the last Lok Sabha election, BJP and JDU have contested elections in equal numbers of seats but now both parties are trying their best to be a dominating political party of Bihar.
BJP’s bad performance in the state poll, Janta Dal United could pressurize for more seats for the coming Assembly election to contest.
ROLE OF UPPER HOUSE
Elections for as many as 73 seats in 2020 will hold in four different phases which is one of the key political development of India.
On one hand, BJP secures a Himalayan majority in the Loksabha, on the other hand, it lacks in Rajya Sabha.BJP desperately needs the absolute majority in Rajya Sabha to pass important Bills as per the party’s desire and strategy.
Therefore, the nation must witness the political heat in this year of 2020 which is interesting to watch and observe.
