RAJYA SABHA ELECTIONS: A FACTOR THAT CAN ALTER THE POLITICAL EQUATIONS AND MAY HAVE AN IMPACT ON DIRECT ELECTIONS IN NEAR FUTURE.
Elections to the Rajya Sabha would have been dull, predictable affairs if not for stories of (1) intrigue and (2) betrayal. In this round of biennial elections to the Upper House of Parliament, the element of drama was provided by the 10th seat from Uttar Pradesh, eventually won by the Bharatiya Janata Party over the Bahujan Samaj Party through a combination of cross-voting and last-minute switch of loyalties. BSP legislator Anil Kumar Singh was open about his rebellion, and his support for the BJP candidate. The battle for the 10th seat, which the BJP could not have won on its own, supposedly held long-term (3) implications for the political (4) churn that U.P. is now witnessing. The BJP saw it as a test of the new bonding between the SP and the BSP, which won for the SP two Lok Sabha by-elections recently. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath sought to paint the result less as a satisfying win for his party and more as a disturbing result for the BSP, saying the SP took votes from others but did not return them and although being unhappy with the defeat, BSP leader Mayawati was unwilling to let it (5) jeopardise the (6) nascent understanding with the SP, and said the loss would not affect her party’s growing (7) proximity to the SP.
Despite its success in the polls in U.P., the BJP is no closer to undermining the opposition in the Rajya Sabha. The Telugu Desam Party has quickly made the transition from a disenchanted (8) ally to a (9) fierce opponent. The Telangana Rashtra Samiti is working towards a federal front opposed to both the Congress and the BJP. The 29 seats (out of 58) that the BJP won in this round will not (10)alter the balance in the Rajya Sabha, at least not immediately. If in U.P. the election brought two opposition parties closer, in West Bengal it created more differences between the Left and the Congress.
