Congress has again proven it’s deadweight around its alliance partners. It over-negotiates for seats and takes them down. It’s now a brand that lives on its reputation when customers have lost interest in it. It’s high time parties such as RJD, SP, NCP got smarter in seat-sharing negotiations with Congress.

  1. For the Feb / March 2017 UP Assembly election, the Congress bullied Akhilesh Yadav into conceding it tickets for a hundred seats. It won 7, RG did a powder, Some days are up, some a little down, left AY to face the press alone. If Ms Priyanka Vadra is projected as CM candidate in 2022, the party might win 25 seats. 2. Tejashwi Yadav has fought like Russell Crowe in the Gladiator. The Left has pulled its weight. The Congress was holidaying in Simla. Had it measured up proportionately, a new CM. 3. Greatness has deserted the Gandhis. I would put the date at 31st October 1984. They are simply holding the party back, weighing down much needed Opposition unity.
