NEITHER Congress Nor Will BJP Get Majority in 2019 LS Polls, Says HD Deve Gowda

FORMER Prime Minister and Janata Dal (S) supremo H.D. Deve Gowda and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao reviewed national political scenario on Sunday at Hyderabad .Later, Deve Gowda said he is confident that the coalition of regional parties will come to power at the Centre after the next general election as the national parties — Congress and BJP — have no chance of securing a majority on their own. There will be early Lok Sabha polls. The “Karnataka episode” will be repeated as the Congress or the BJP will be forced to back a coalition of regional parties to form the government at the Centre. Telangana and neighbouring Andhra Pradesh will have assembly election with Lok Sabha elections. Gowda, 85, was in the ancient southern city to attend the wedding of the grandson of Rajya Sabha member and senior Congressman T. Subbarami Reddy He had met Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and discussed political scenario with Rao  his son IT minister K.T. Rama Rao stated to be political successor to Chandrasekhar Rao. The subject of their discussion related to KTR’s attempts to float a federal front at national level comprising regional parties in cooperation with his Bengal counterpart Minister Mamata Banerjee .Gowda is reportedly of the view that an attempt at forming such a federal front should be initiated after the general election since now all regional parties face different issues in their respective states.Pre-poll fronts at this juncture would not be possible. It would be better to wait for the outcome of the general election. Post-poll alliances of regional parties can be formed to capture power at the Centre. Neither the Congress nor the BJP will get a majority on their own to form a government. They will be forced to back a coalition of regional parties like it happened in Karnataka recently,” Gowda said is quoted as predicting by TRS sources. Meanwhile, NCP chief and ex-Maharashtra Chief Minister Sharad Pawar and General Secretary of Communist Party of India (Marxist) Sitaram Yechury have gone on record saying Mahagathbandhan to take on BJP led NDA Government is not possible.(with image &  inputs from The Deccan Chronicle )
