NPP unsettles BJP, Cong in Rajasthan

The presence of former Nationalist Congress party leader, P A. Sangama, in the polls-cape of Rajasthan is turning out to be a major concern for the two dominant political outfits— the BJP and Congress– in Rajasthan. The Natonal Peoples Party led by ex- Lok Sabha speaker, is making inroads in the BJP and Congress bastions in Rajasthan.

The NPP is trying to make significant  impact on the upcoming assembly elections, by trying to win over Gujjar, Jat and Meena community. This is making both the Congress and BJP nervous—Gujjars and Jats are two dominant OBC caste in Rajasthan.

The Meenas — another backward caste—– has a substantial influence over thirty five constituencies in the state. The presence of Mr Sangma is looking more ominous for the BJP as Kirodhi Lal Meena—- a Meena caste leader and one time ally of Vasundhara Raje Scindhia—– has stepped into the National Peoples Party.

In Rajasthan, BJP is tipped to win the race, but the NPP has managed to rope in all the Congress and BJP rebels, which can spoil the prospects of the two political outfits. Adding salt over the wound is the fact, that most of the rebels are prominent faces with considerable influence over electorates, in their respective constituencies.

NPP has fielded candidates in 150 out of the 200 seats, up for grabs in Rajasthan. Efforts of Bahujan Samaj Party supremo, Mayawati, in Rajasthan , also does not augur well for the Congress, as the Dalits and Muslims may want to have a ride on the elephant.

Prominent faces who defected from BJP to NPP :

Sumitra Singh : Former speaker of the Rajasthan Assembly and an eight time MLA

Babu Ram Verma  and Gyasa Ram Kohli : Won in 2008 assembly elections

Shailendra Joshi and Narendra Parmer :  Former Ministers for states.
