Gwalior, MP, May 10 : Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath has expressed confidence that the post-general election period shall witness formation of a Congress-led national alliance that will assume the reins at the Centre.
“These polls have become ‘Modi versus the rest of the country’. Compared to 2014, the Congress shall emerge victorious in at least thrice the number of constituencies and our alliance partners’ performance will be satisfactory. On the contrary, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is likely to decline from 282 to the vicinity of 150,” the Congress veteran and erstwhile Union minister told UNI on Thursday while on the campaign trail in Gwalior-Chambal region.
Responding to a related query, the seasoned leader averred that a majority is expected for the Congress-steered United Progressive Alliance but in the event of that not materialising a solution shall be worked out through discussion.
“The objective of all non-National Democratic Alliance (NDA) parties is the same – to keep the BJP distant from power. Even within the NDA, many people do not desire Mr Narendra Modi as Premier. When the goal is one, a partnership becomes uncomplicated,” Mr Nath felt.
Possessing experience of approximately four decades in central politics, he reiterated that all parties wish to keep the BJP away from government and after the polls “we will constitute a regime through deliberation leading to creation of a national coalition.”
When asked whether it would be possible to remain amalgamated with Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati, her Samajwadi Party counterpart Akhilesh Yadav and All India Trinamool Congress head Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister repeated that when the target is not different, things become straightforward.
