Union Minister,Beni Prasad,who was once great friends with SP head,Mulayam Singh Yadav, has again made a controversial statement against him saying SP is dreaming to become the PM but they are not even fit to sweep PM’s residence.The Congress spokesperson has declared this may be Beni’s personal view and not Congress’ .
SP with 21 MPs matters a lot for the UPA govt after TMC and DMK has left the alliance and Beni Prasad’s repeated attack on SP may surely turn things worse between Congress and SP.Point is,do these elderly leaders really make such comments out of frustration or are these just part of some political plan and strategy ?
In the recent past,Beni Prasad had regretted his statement where he had claimed Mulayam Singh is friendly with terrorists.
Nobody can take away the benefits Congress is going to get if Pranab Mukherjee, the troubleshooter of the party, becomes the President of India. Serving the second term in alliance has been difficult for the UPA government led by Congress. If not all, at least Mamata Banerjee has never been thinking alike, rejecting many Congress decisions, including the recent issue of not supporting Pranab Mukherjee for Presidential Post.
In case there is any dispute between Mamata led TMC and Congress and they decide to split, SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav would support the UPA government,as it seems till date. But Congress would rather prefer sticking to TMC till 2014 General Elections.
However, if and once Pranab Mukherjee becomes the President of India and as expected, if there is a mixed election result of 2014 , where both the UPA and NDA doubt clear win, it would be a call of the President and then all the present effort to push Pranab Mukherjee on President’s chair would yield results in favour of Congress ! No denying that all these are expectations and assumptions and only 2014 knows what it has in its bag for Indian Politics !
