New Delhi. After Maharashtra, Jharkhand, now after the defeat in the Delhi Assembly elections, the BJP now faces the challenge of assembly elections in Bihar and West Bengal in the next one year. After the defeat in Delhi, BJP is not in a position to negotiate with JDU in Bihar. At the same time, in West Bengal, the party has started to lack local leader. After this result, BJP's allies will no longer miss out on pressure on the party.
Assembly elections are due in Bihar probably in October this year and in West Bengal early next year. In Bihar, the party's plan was to get a seat at par with its ally JDU. But the latest result has confused the party. With the party not having a strong leader in the state, the BJP will be under pressure after successive defeats in the assembly elections and will not be in a position to negotiate too much with the JDU. Anyway, JDU is demanding more seats than BJP before this election.
West Bengal Mamata's challenge
The BJP surprised the political pundits by performing well in West Bengal in the Lok Sabha elections. Then the magic of the brand Modi had started in the state. However, party work is not going on in the states without local strongman leaders. The problem of the party is that it does not have any local leaders around the stature of CM Mamata Banerjee in the state. The Trinamool Congress's position in the state may be strengthened by the mobilization in favor of a minority class party against the CAA. There are 28 percent minority voters in the state.
Pressure will increase on BJP
Many allies are uncomfortable with BJP's nationalist agenda. In particular, JDU, Akali Dal have objected to CAA, NRC, NPR. After the Delhi results, the pressure of the parties will increase on the BJP. Anyway, after the results of Jharkhand and Maharashtra, the allies openly questioned the functioning of the NDA.
Now the NDA in just 16
with a strong majority in the Lok Sabha elections 2019, the BJP-led NDA retakes the center. Has happened, but his defeat in the states is not stopping. In March 2018, the NDA government was in 21 states, which has now been reduced to 16 states. After the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP could only form the government in Haryana. At present, there is opposition government in 12 states. In December 2018, the process of BJP's defeat started from Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan continued in Jharkhand. Despite getting a clear majority with ally Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, the largest party BJP had to sit in opposition.
