Maharashtra Election: How BJP entered Sharad Pawar's den

Maharashtra Election: How BJP entered Sharad Pawar's den

Marathwada has the largest number of seats after West Maharashtra and Vidarbha. There are 46 assembly seats in the eight districts here and that is why the political importance of this area has increased in the assembly elections.

Since 2014, the Shiv Sena and BJP have strengthened their hold over Marathwada. In the last election, Shiv Sena and BJP had fought separately and won 26 out of 46 seats of this Marathwada.

The government has re-elected under the leadership of Narendra Modi at the Center. This is why the alliance's confidence has increased. At the same time, after the defeat, this is an opportunity for the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party to try their strength.

The political picture of Marathwada has changed after the big leaders of NCP left the party. The veteran leader of Osmanabad district and longtime ally of Sharad Pawar, Padmasinh Patil and his son Rana Jagjit Singh Patil have left the NCP.

BJP has been given ticket from Rana Jagjit Singh from Tuljapur constituency.

Jayadatta Kshirsagar, a major NCP leader, has joined the Shiv Sena. Due to this, NCP hurdles may increase in Marathwada.

Marathwada supported Pawar
Marathwada used to be a part of the princely state of Hyderabad at the time of independence. The politics here has been different from Western Maharashtra and Vidarbha. The issues here and the equations here are different from the rest of the state.

During the Marathwada liberation struggle, the Congress used to hold its politics due to the contribution of the Congress.

In the seventies and eighties, former Chief Minister Shankarrao Chavan, former MPs Kesharkaku Kshirsagar and Ankushrao Tope, former Chief Minister Shivajirao Patil Nilangekar used to be important leaders of Marathwada.

A large section believed in Sharad Pawar used to be in Marathwada. Sharad Pawar left the Congress in 1978 and formed a party called Samajwadi Congress which had good support in the area of ​​Marathwada. Shiv Sena came into existence at the same time.

In 1986, when Sharad Pawar merged his Socialist Congress with the Congress in the presence of Rajiv Gandhi. Since then, the Shiv Sena's land in Marathwada had started strengthening.

After the year 1990, Shiv Sena's mass base grew rapidly. In 1999, Sharad Pawar left the Congress and once again formed a new political party in the name of Nationalist Congress Party. Marathwada also supported Pawar at that time.

Beed, Parbhani, Jalna, Osmanabad, NCP has been supported in these districts.

From the Congress side, Ashok Chavan in Nanded, Vilasrao Deshmukh in Latur kept his grip.

In the year 2014, the dominance of Congress and NCP got a big blow and Shiv Sena-BJP established its base.

In the recent Lok Sabha elections, the remaining two Congress seats in Marathwada were also snatched by the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance.

On the other hand, MIM has shown its strength by winning Aurangabad Lok Sabha seat.

Due to this, assembly elections can be challenging for Congress and NCP.

Interesting comparison of Marathwada
The most interesting battle in Marathwada is in Beed district. There is going to be an interesting contest in Parli assembly constituency as well.

In Parli assembly constituency, BJP's Pankaja Munde and NCP's Dhananjay Munde (nephew of Gopinath Munde) are competing in these siblings.

Parli seat Pankaja Munde has been winning continuously since the delimitation of Maharashtra Legislative Assembly.

Pankaja Munde was able to win her sister Pritam Munde from Beed Lok Sabha constituency in the recently held Lok Sabha elections.

However, it cannot be said that Dhananjay Munde is out of favor with Parli as he is also well-mannered in this area. Hence Parli is being eyed by political pundits.

While there is a competition between brothers and sisters in Parli, there is a tough competition between uncle and nephew in Beed.

Jayadutt Kshirsagar, who supported Sharad Pawar in Beed assembly constituency, has left the NCP. His nephew Sandeep is standing in front of NCP in front of him.

For this reason, Shiv Sainiks will support Kshirsagar or not? These questions are being asked by observers who monitor Beed these days.

Jayadatta Kshirsagar was elected in the assembly elections in 2009 and 2014.

In the 2016 civic elections, the faction of Sandeep Kshirsagar defeated the faction of Jayadatta Kshirsagar.

Padma Singh Patil's son Rana Jagjit Singh Patil has been given a ticket from Tuljapur region.

He will face senior Congress leader Madhukar Rao Chavan. Therefore, the battle of Tuljapur is also considered important.

Madhukar Chavan has been elected four times since 1999. In the year 1984, Madhukar Chavan contested against Padmasinh Patil from Osmanabad region in which he lost.What will happen to 

Latur, the stronghold of Vilasrao Deshmukh?

In the era of Vilasrao Deshmukh, the Congress was dominated by Latur, but in the elections of 2014 and 2019, the BJP ousted the Congress from here. Not only this, BJP is also dominating here in local bodies.

Therefore, the strength of the Congress has been reduced to Latur Rural, Latur City and Ausa Assembly seats.

In the Lok Sabha elections, BJP had an edge in these assembly segments of Latur City, Latur Rural, Ausa, Nilanga, Udgir and Ahmedpur.

That is why the Congress has to repeat its good performance in these three seats with its influence.

Amit Deshmukh is contesting from Latur City and Vilasrao Deshmukh's second son Dheeraj is contesting from Latur Rural.

Survival battle for ashok chavan
Ashok Chavan was defeated in the Lok Sabha elections from Nanded. That is why assembly elections have become a battle of survival for them.

Ashok Chavan is contesting from Bhokar seat. Chavan's fight is with Bapusaheb Gorthekar who came to BJP from NCP.

After the defeat of Nanded, this election is another opportunity for Chavan to maintain his supremacy.

Mim factor

Owaisi's party MIM registered its political presence by winning the seat of central Aurangabad in the 2014 assembly elections.

After that, in the Lok Sabha elections, MIM proved its supremacy once again by winning the seat of Aurangabad.

In the Lok Sabha elections, MIM contested with the deprived Bahujan Aghadi.

Marathwada has a large number of Muslim Dalit voters. Both these communities had earlier supported Congress-NCP.

In the Lok Sabha elections, he got the option of MIM and deprived Bahujan Aghadi and he also gave it a chance.

The common candidates of MIM and underprivileged Bahujan Aghadis damaged the Congress-NCP candidate in several seats in Marathwada.

MIM and underprivileged Bahujan Aghadis are contesting elections this time separated from each other.

So how much effect they are going to have this time. This cannot be said with certainty.

Marathwada's political equations
Ethnic equations are becoming important in state politics. Political analyst Professor Vivek Scam says, "Maratha society has more population in western Maharashtra and Marathwada than Vidarbha and Konkan."

According to the opinion of the experts, the population of Maratha society in Marathwada is 40 percent. After them, backward castes like Vanjari, Dhangar, Banjara are important in terms of numbers.

Professor Vivek Scam says, "Maratha society used to be with the Congress earlier. After the year 1990, this society started leaning towards Shiv Sena. In recent times, the inclination of Maratha society can be felt towards BJP. In Beed district Vanjara society is on a large scale. Latur, Nanded, Parbhani and Hingoli districts have less population of Maratha society. "

He says, "This society was with the Congress earlier, but due to Gopinath Munde, it came towards the BJP. The population of Dhangar society is quite good in Latur and Nanded. Banjara society in Parbhani and Hingoli district is also recent Years have been seen towards the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance. "

Scam says, "The population of Lingayat society in Latur is also fair. These people were in support of the Congress till 1999. But now these people are also inclined towards the government."

Marathwada Issues

Marathwada is considered the most drought-prone area in Maharashtra. Due to this there is unemployment here. The industrialization of Marathwada is limited to Aurangabad only.

There is lack of infrastructure and it is quite backward compared to Western Maharashtra.

Now how effective these issues will be in the Maharashtra assembly elections, its decision will be decided by the assembly elections.
