Catchy slogans of Congress-SP alliance rejected by UP people

Lucknow: To give massive victory to the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state assembly elections, the people of Uttar Pradesh have rejected the alliance of Samajwadi Party-Congress and their catchy slogans like “UP ke ladke”, “UP ko yeh saath pasand hai” and “Kaam bolta hai”.

The friendship between Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi went into vain after the people Uttar Pradesh have not been able to connect with the voters as they rejected the alliance to hand the BJP a massive victory in the state.

 

 

The Saffron party swept to an extraordinary majority in UP with 312 seats. Whereas the SP was manage to get 47 seats and its alliance Congress could administer only 7 seats.

The two young faces of the alliance-outgoing Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi-were not able to cash in on the young voters of the state.

The youth voters in the state attracted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s charisma, rather than the Akhilesh Yadav’s slogan “Kaam bolta hai”.

 

 

The Congress had been facing critical condition in front of the performances of the Samajwadi Party before its alliance in UP. The Congress had coined the slogan “27 saal, UP behaal. (UP has been in abysmal state for the past 27 years) to target its opposition parties BJP, BSP and SP.

When the Congress party allied with the Samajwadi Party, it struck a blow to the hopes of many Congress workers.

Several Congress leaders had also expressed their doubts over the alliance with the SP. A senior party leader said there was a lot of passion among the party workers when it was ready to go it alone in polls.

 

 

Many Samajwadi party supporters did not take too kindly to the fact that SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav was sidelined by his son Akhilesh to become the party President.

Due to this, many non-Yadav OBC voters, who earlier supported Mulayam Singh Yadav, had this time voted for the BJP. The Saffron party was successful in bringing these voters into their fold.

A few leaders even thought the “alliance with Congress” was a big mistake. The alliance failed miserably in transferring their own votes to the other party in most of the constituencies.

 

 

One of the objectives of the SP-Congress alliance was to attract the Muslim votes, but this too was dashed when the Muslim votes got divided between the BSP and the SP in the state.

As both the parties went against each other in over a dozen seats in UP and it was enough to confuse the voters of these constituencies. The alliance with the Congress party even irked a number of voters in the state.

Hyderabad: The Union Home Ministry has cancelled the Indian citizenship of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) MLA Ramesh Chennamaneni for concealing facts about his foreign tours. The MLA is alleged to have secretly taken German citizenship and not informed about it.

Fresh orders were issued after hearing Ramesh, who had challenged an earlier order from 2017, cancelling his citizenship.

“His misrepresentation/concealment of fact misled the government of India in making its decision initially. Had he revealed the fact that he had not resided in India for one year before making the application, the competent authority in this ministry would not have granted citizenship to him,” a ministry order said.

It said the competent authority is “satisfied that it is not conducive to public good that Chennamaneni continues to be a citizen of India” and, therefore, decided that he “ceases” to be a citizen of the country.

Ramesh, who was re-elected to the Telangana Assembly from Vemulawada constituency last year, said he would approach the high court for relief.

Ramesh Chennamaneni belongs to a political family from Vemulawada, he was three times MLA. In 2009, he contested for the first time on a Telugu Desam Party ticket. His father Rajeshwar Rao was a freedom fighter and was a 6-time MLA.
