Mamata Banerjee's decision to contest elections alone in Bengal - India TV Hindi

Mamata Banerjee’s decision to contest elections alone in Bengal

The 2024 Lok Sabha elections are just a few months away. The opposition had formed the India Alliance to fight the upcoming Lok Sabha elections unitedly, but differences between the leaders of the parties involved continue to surface. The opposition coalition suffered a major blow when Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Mamata Banerjee announced that she would contest the elections alone in West Bengal. Amid a tussle with the Congress over seat-sharing, Mamata had already hinted at going solo in Bengal. Why did Mamata do this? It is being talked about from Delhi to Bengal, let’s know some reasons behind it?

The Congress rejected Mamata’s proposal.

In fact, the western region has a total of 42 Lok Sabha seats and Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress (TMC) is in power here. Due to the ongoing conflict with the Congress over seat-sharing, Mamata Banerjee announced that she would contest the elections alone in Bengal apart from the alliance. Regarding this, Mamata said that she had proposed seat-sharing to the Congress, but they had already rejected it, so her party has decided to contest the elections alone in Bengal. Let us tell you that in West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee offered the Congress to contest only two of the 42 seats that the Congress won in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. However, the Congress rejected Mamata’s proposal. Mamata Banerjee said about breaking away from the alliance that the Congress high command rejected all her proposals, so she decided to fight alone.

Entry of ‘Bharat Judo New Yatra’ in Bengal

Mamata Banerjee announced to contest the elections alone at a time when Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Naya Yatra’ was about to enter West Bengal. Yatra has now entered Bengal. Rahul Gandhi has given a message that he is not here to challenge his ally India’s Trinamool Congress but to stand with them. Let us tell you that apart from major parties like Trinamool Congress, CPM and Congress, the opposition alliance also includes smaller parties like Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (Tamang), All India Forward Bloc and RPI in 42 Lok Sabha seats of West Bengal. . In such a situation, if Mamata Banerjee contests the elections alone, the contest in Bengal may become triangular. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, there were around 10 seats where Mamata’s candidates lost to BJP candidates due to CPM and Congress.

What is the vote share of which party?

If we look at the figures, TMC is in a much stronger position than Congress in West Bengal. While the TMC strengthened in the 20219 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress’s vote share is declining. Along with this, BJP’s support in Bengal has grown tremendously. In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress got 13.5 percent of the votes, which declined to 9.7 percent in the 2014 elections. After that, in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the vote share of the Congress was 5.6 percent. In terms of seats, in 2009, Congress had 6 seats. In 2014 it came down to 4 seats. It was then reduced to 2 in 2019.

Unlike the Congress, the TMC’s vote share in Bengal has steadily increased. In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, the TMC won 19 seats with 31.2 percent of the vote. In 2014, the TMC won 34 seats with 39.8 percent of the vote. At the same time, in 2019, the TMC’s vote share was 43.3 percent, but the seats fell to 22.

Along with this, BJP’s position in West Bengal is getting stronger. The 2019 Lok Sabha elections in Bengal have been BJP’s best ever performance. After that, BJP became the second largest party in Bengal politics. In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, BJP’s vote share was 6.1 percent, which increased to 40.6 percent in 2019. Till 2014, BJP was limited to only one or two seats in Bengal, but in the 2019 elections it gave TMC a hard fight and won 18 out of 42 seats.

Also, in 2009 CPM’s vote share was 33.1 percent, but in 2019 it got only 6.3 percent votes. The Left Front lost zero seats in Bengal.

Mamata raised questions on India Alliance.

Addressing a rally at the end of the ‘Sadbhavana rally’ to mark the consecration of Ram Lalla at the new Ram temple in Ayodhya, Mamata targeted the parties involved in the Hindustan alliance. Mamata asked how many leaders targeted BJP today? One goes to a temple and thinks that it is enough, but it is not. Mamata said, I am the only one who went to temple, gurudwara, church and mosque today, I have been fighting for many days. Meanwhile, Mamata said, I suggested the name India, but when I went to the meeting, I saw that the Leftists were controlling the meeting. “I cannot agree with the people with whom I fought for 34 years,” Mamata said. I have power so I fight BJP.

Mamata angry at being in Left alliance

Mamata Banerjee was not ready to support the Left in the Indian coalition in Bengal. Mamata had warned the Congress about this twice. Earlier, Abhishek Banerjee himself had met Rahul Gandhi and demanded the removal of the Left Wing, and then Mamata reiterated this in her meeting with Sonia Gandhi. According to sources, the TMC said that the Left’s support in Bengal has shifted to the BJP. This is the reason why BJP is continuously winning in Jharkhand-Bengal border areas. Mamata said that the CPM should not be revived by forming an alliance in Bengal and any leader of the CPM who has a lot of support wants to contest the election, the Congress should contest the election on its banner.

Adhir Ranjan should be removed from the post of President of Bengal.

In Bengal, Mamata Banerjee is also at loggerheads with Congress state president Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary. He also expressed his displeasure over Adhir’s comment. Mamata said that despite the declaration of unity, Adhir is constantly making statements against her. Mamata had also made a public complaint against Adhir at a meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Mumbai. Despite this, Adhir is targeting Mamata.

There was also fear of action by central agencies.

The CPM and the Congress have also termed Mamata Banerjee’s decision to contest the elections alone as a result of the actions of central agencies. These parties say that the TMC has decided to contest the elections alone in Bengal, fearing action by the central agency, which could benefit the BJP. Let us tell you that Abhish Banerjee in the coal and cattle smuggling case, Partha Chatterjee in the teacher recruitment scam, Anubrat Mandal in the coal and cattle smuggling case, Male Ghatak in the coal scam and Jyoti Priya Malik in the ration scam are currently on the Central Agency’s radar. .
