    How ‘Opposition Unity’ can easily backfire on congress and strengthen BJP.

    0 Not allowed!
    Jaya Nagar win for Congress (with a narrow margin) may increase its tally to 80 against the BJP’s 104.

    This is not definitely going to make any difference in Karnataka politics.

    The congress with 80 seats, may have to face more hurdles and bottle necks in implementing welfare measures to the public with the C.M. of JD (S) and the Central ruled by BJP.

    Let us wait and see how long the 'Khichdi Alliance' will last.

    How ‘Opposition Unity’ can easily backfire on congress and strengthen BJP.

    The party is only focused on defeating Modi, even at the cost of bolstering regional players.

    Ever since the Congress threw its weight behind the HD Kumaraswamy-led government in Karnataka, theories that only "Opposition unity" could run rings round the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls are gaining traction.

    Anti-BJP parties are delighted over the electoral arithmetic of Opposition unity. And the recent onslaught by the combined Opposition on the BJP in the by-polls has given hope to the Opposition that the only way to stop the Narendra Modi juggernaut is united Opposition.

    However, the upshot of the unity is a vicious cycle that can be damaging for the Congress party. Congress, though, fails to see it coming.

    It seems like the Opposition has almost forgotten that by-poll results are not always indicative of the trends in national elections. I am amazed to see Congress celebrating BJP's by-poll losses first in Gorakhpur and Phulpur and now in Kairana and Noorpur.
