The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP) on Monday announced an alliance in Uttarakhand and Madhya Pradesh for Lok Sabha elections 2019.

The Samajwadi Party will contest three of the 29 Lok Sabha seats in Madhya Pradesh, while in Uttarakhand, it will contest one of the five Lok Sabha seats.

The Samajwadi Party will contest Balaghat, Tikamgarh, and Khajuraho seats in Madhya Pradesh.

In Uttarakhand which has 5 Lok Sabha seats, the SP will contest the Garhwal (Pauri) seat and the BSP will fight in three, according to a joint statement by Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati

With this, the SP-BSP alliance has officially spread to three states as both these parties had announced their alliance on January 13 in Lucknow.

The parties had earlier decided on an equal partnership and said they would contest on 38 seats each, but the Samajwadi Party has now given away one seat from its quota to accommodate the Rashtriya Lok Dal, which had been pressing for a minimum three seats.

While announcing their alliance Mayawati and Akhilesh had said that the alliance would not field any candidate at Amethi and Rae Bareli parliamentary constituencies, represented by Congress president Rahul Gandhi and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi respectively.

The news report on 25 February 2019 suggests that alliance of Congress Party and AAP Party for purpose of 2019 elections has almost not taken shape. Similarly , the alliance elsewhere except BSP-SP does not seem to be coming up though the Election Commission may likely announce poll dates in the first week of March 2019. Broadly speaking , while the NDA has almost made its alliance in the country , the same is not yet in the scene as far as the Opposition is concerned. In this context , it may be apt to refer to this Vedic astrology writer’s related predictive alerts in the article - “ The Year 2019 Astrologically for India” - published last year on 7 October , 2018 at theindiapost.com. The related predictive alert reads like this in the said article :- “ Now here , the year 2019 is in the focus about India, when multi sections of society are likely to present a scattered political picture. A kind of political hysteria catering to varying vested interests looks to be coming up”.
