One month after joining BSP, RS Praveen Kumar is almost forgotten now


It’s been one month since senior IPS officer RS Praveen Kumar quit his plum post and plunged himself into politics in Telangana. He has joined the Bahujan Samaj Party. But, how has the journey been? This is the question tormenting his friends and foes alike. What has he achieved and is he going in the right direction?

Honest insiders admit that the moment he joined the BSP, he had lost the initiative. The very Dalit groups, in whose name Praveen Kumar swears, are not with him. The Dalits seem not really enthusiastic about his political foray. In the last 15 days, he has attended only one organisational rally. He addressed a meeting of the BSP workers in Rangareddy district. Beyond that there is literally no political activity on his front. This shows the lack of enthusiasm among the Dalits about his political activity.

In the last 15 days, he met an ailing Manda Krishna Madiga, Congress Dalit leader Addanki Dayakar of Thungathurthi and the family of the girl who was gangraped in Singareni Colony in Hyderabad. But for an occasional tweet about Chakali Ailamma or Ganesh Chaturthi, there is literally no activity on his social media too. Fund crunch and lack of interest among the Dalits is said to be the chief reasons for the lack of activity. Sources say that no big name has joined the BSP during the last one month. No Swaero, the gurukul alumni that he had so fondly nurtured, is with him now.

RS Praveen Kumar must now be realising that running gurukul schools with the support of the government machinery is one thing and running a political movement is another thing. With schemes like Dalit Bandhu, the Dalit community would rather prefer to be with the political elite than with a challenger like RS Praveen Kumar.

Strategy: Pawan to give 3 MP and 21 MLA seats to BSP


Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan has forged alliance with Mayawati’s Bahujan Samajwadi Party. As per the latest reports he is going to give 21 MLA seats and 3 MP seats to BSP in 2019 elections.

People are surprised to know that Pawan Kalyan is giving huge number of seats to BSP. He is also having alliance with communists and they are demanding 26 seats for assembly. Even if he gives 24 seats, Pawan will be left only with 130 seats for assembly. Moreover 3 out of 25 MP seats to BSP seems to be huge number again.

However, Pawan Kalyan seems to have different strategy. In 2014 elections BSP got 4.5 lakh votes in United Andhra Pradesh, which is 1% of total votes polled. Communists together got another 1.3% votes in 2014. So , all together these allies have 2.3 percent votes polled in the state, which means on the average 2.5 thousand votes per constituency ( on average most of the assembly constituencies have 1 lakh to 1.25 lakh votes polled). Even if Pawan Kalyan does not get benefit out of the 45 seats allotted to communists and BSP, if these 2,500 votes per constituency ( average) shift to janasena in the areas where its leaders are contesting, it will do majic to the results of janasena candidates.

We will have to wait and see whether this strategy of Pawan Kalyan will work out or not.

UP poll survey: SP-BSP giving sleepless nights to BJP


The coming together of Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav in Uttar Pradesh is turning out to be a bitter test for the BJP. Surveys are saying the SP-BSP combine will badly upset plans of the Modi-Shah duo in the country’s largest state. The India Today-Kaarvi survey has said that if elections are held now, the SP-BSP alliance will win 58 MP seats while the BJP allies will be reduced to just 18 seats as against four of Congress.

The survey discloses that if the SP-BSP join hands with the Congress, their total tally will further increase from 62 to 75. This will reduce the BJP’s prospects from 18 to just 5 MP seats. Because of the state-level local issues, Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav did not tie up with the Congress party. They are talking of any anti-BJP alliance talks after the results of the general election come out and depending on the numbers game at that time.

It is only anti-Modi sentiment that has brought Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav together. In 2014 election, the BJP won over 71 MP seats out of the total 80 in UP. It ally Apna Dal won 2 more seats. The success in UP has put the BJP in a comfortable position to form the government. But the changed political scene indicates a tough time for the BJP this time.

KCR turns keen on BSP-SP alliance


Hyderabad: Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao is now on cloud nine over the political alliance between archrivals Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) as both the parties have decided to keep equal distance with Congress and BJP. The decision of BSP and SP will further boost the prospects for Federal Front, a KCR-led initiative to establish a third force as an alternative to Congress and BJP in the country. According to sources, KCR has already sent his messengers to Uttar Pradesh (UP) to hold discussions with BSP chief Mayawati and SP president Akhilesh Yadav.

KCR has reportedly spoken with both the leaders and discussed on possible political strategies in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

After a gap of 25 years, BSP and SP have announced their political alliance for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections and said there was no difference between BJP and Congress. Out of total 80 Lok Sabha seats in UP, both the parties will contest for 38 constituencies each. UP plays a key role in deciding which party to take over power at the Centre. India has 545 Lok Sabha seats including two reserved for Anglo-Indian community.

KCR has been meeting leaders from several states to garner support for his Federal Front platform to prevent BJP and Congress from forming the government at the Centre. The remarks made by Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav were similar to those of KCR, who often says both the national parties are corrupt and alternatively enjoying the power leaving no other option to the public.

The political alliance between BSP and SP not only confined to Lok Sabha elections, but also for Assembly polls as well. Meanwhile, Congress senior leader AK Antony made sensational comment saying the party alone can’t face BJP. On the otherside, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi said he honours the decision of BSP and SP and will contest in elections without any political alliance.
