New Delhi,10/08/18:Elections to post of Deputy Chairperson giving a appreciable mandate in favour of NDA candidate Harivansh Narain Singh of JDU was in fact an election between matured leadership of BJP and immature leadership of Congress. BJP played its cards well to reaffirm support of JDU by making its first-time Parliamentarian elected to the post with a comfortable margin not only retaining its other allies like Shiv Sena together, but even gaining support of other regional parties like TRS and BJD. It was like a friendly match when Bihar Chief Minister showed courtesy by calling Delhi Chief Minister for support. But on the other hand, Congress President who made a shocking surprise by hugging Prime Minister, did not exhibit even symbolic curtsey when he deliberately failed opposition unity by not making a courtesy call to Delhi Chief Minister seeking his support for its candidate. If Congress would have tactically supported NCP candidate for the post rather than fielding its own candidate, election would have been certainly a close neck-to-neck fight with regional parties including ally in NDA would have supported UPA candidate. Parties abstaing from the elections would have also supported UPA candidate on being called by the NCP candidate.
Now it is certain that Congress will play into hands of BJP by breaking opposition-unity, thus paving way for a single-party rule of BJP which should be thankful from its inner heart for Sonia Gandhi for her putting oldest national party in hands of a totally immature dynastic leader.
