We will soon form government: Anbalagan
Forming coalition has become an integral part of Indian elections irrespective of it importance. Since new parties are being formed at ease, the electorates divide without knowing the consequences of the results; hence the mingling before the election becomes necessary for effective outcome of the election. The old trend of fighting election alone and getting majority is almost history. The coalition of Jayalalitha’s AIADMK and N Rangaswamy’s NR Congress in the recently held Puducherry election gave them the desired results defeating the Indian National Congress bitterly. Pre-poll coalition is more valid and generally works as a single unit for forming the government, although there is no binding on any of the coalition partners. The problem occurs if one of the partners gets more than 50% seats then it sometimes ignores the other coalition partner and forms its own government by its assembly members or parliamentary members. The NR Congress did the same ignoring AIADMK as it could form the government with slim majority without the help of AIADMK members. The same was not seen in West Bengal where Mamata Bannerjee’s Trinamul Congress with comfortable majority did not side track its ally the Congress Party and invited it to join the government. Rangaswamy’s one-sided decision has angered Jayalalitha naturally and she has termed it as betrayal. The matter has not been taken very lightly by the AIADMK, which is prominent from the statement given by the newly elected leader of the AIADMK Legislature Party Anbalagan. Right analysis of his statement can provide an indication that Rangaswamy would not be able to continue as Chief Minister for long with this thin majority. Anbalagan said that his party AIADMK would form the government in the Union Territory Puducherry sooner than one can think. What does that mean? Unless AIADMK joins hands with congress in Puducherry or breaks Rangaswamy’s NR Congress, Anbalagan’s contention cannot become true.
We all know how shrewd Jayalalitha is as far as politics is concerned and this time with land slide victory in Tamil Nadu and in the chair of chief minister of TN, Jayalalitha would not spare any route to rout Rangaswamy from his dream chair of CM. Breach of trust will not be tolerated is the message given by Anbalagan in a press conference soon after he was elected as the leader of the legislative party.
