Rahul Gandhi: Getting ready for post poll alliance
Rahul Gandhi is working hard to ensure that is a condition arises then Congress gets enough allies to form a coalition government. His list of possible allies includes AIADMK, TDP, JDU and Left parties

JUST DAYS before the final verdict of Lok Sabha elections on May 16, the AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi is working hard to hook some allies with Congress, which has been left alone by its earlier allies Samajwadi Party and Left.

The focus of the Junior Gandhi, it seems, it wandering in every direction, from Left to Right and even South. In last week, Congress' ace candidate Rahul was seen woeing Nitish Kumar, Left and even Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu to ensure after poll alliance, if at all required.

During his endless pre poll rallies, Rahul has hinted that Congress would not mind to form an alliance with TDP, JDU and Left.

Citing the similar topics of Common Minimum Programme between Congress and Left, Rahul announced that he was confident that the Left parties would give their support for a Congress Prime Minister.

While Lalu Prasad Yadav, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief is trying his best to grab more seats in Bihar, Rahul’s desire to get Nitish beside Congress expresses the young leader’s shrewd sense of politics. Rahul also sought the support of AIADMK, one of the major political parties of Tamil Nadu.

While dismissing the claim of Sharad Power, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief, of becoming the Prime Minister of India, Rahul mentioned that he would agree with such idea only if NCP emerges as the largest political party.

NCP hopes to win in more than a dozen seats in Maharashtra. Similarly, Rahul also made it clear that Congress would consider of supporting the Third Front if it wins more than 180-190 seats.

Rahul played a major role in deciding over the issue of seat sharing with the Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh. His decision of ‘good deal’ or ‘no deal’ brought the wrath of heavyweight SP leaders like Mulayam Singh Yadav and Amar Singh, which compelled SP to part ways with Congress.

Besides Rahul’s felicitation of Nitish not only irked the RJD supremo, but also caused the heart-burn of Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) chief – Ramvilas Paswan.

All said and done, but most of the political allinaces in India depend on poll results, which will be declared on May 16. Till then, let's wait and watch
