BJD’s 2019 Game-Plan To Field More RS Members May Boomerang The Party!
By Odishatv 27-May-2019
What bothers the party strategists is the united opposition now has the numbers to wrest a RS seat from BJD, courtesy the party’s game-plan of deploying as many as six RS members into the battle of 2019. As four of them have emerged winners in the poll, the party strategists seem to be in a huddle now over this new equation.
During the 2019 polls, anticipating an intense contest in Odisha, the strategists in the party decided to deploy Rajya Sabha members in the battlefield. The party had pitted as many as six RS members this election – a record in State’s poll history. Though two RS MPs – Prasanna Acharya and Sarojini Hembram – had lost the 2019 polls, Odisha will see vacancy of four RS seats at one go in 2019. As per the constitutional norms, elections to fill the vacant RS seats will be held within six months from the date of vacancy, which means Odisha could witness a RS poll at most before the end of December this year.
What is nagging the BJD strategists is as four RS seats are to be filled up, the party with 112 members could easily ensure win for 3 candidates only, and if united opposition fields a consensus candidate then they could ensure a win for their candidate. The side-effect here is BJD could lose a RS seat to the opposition.
क्या कांग्रेस का महागठबंधन से अलग रह के चुनाव लड़ने की वजह से बीजेपी को पूर्ण बहुमत मिला है?
