Himachal Politics Shifts to Haryana

Himachal This Week

Neighbouring state of Haryana is on the boil and the reason is electoral fever that gripped the state with intense fighting amongst various parties. Bhupinder Singh Hooda fired masterstroke to garner sikh votes and brought about a state Sikh shrine management body against Shiromini Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee that controlled the gurudwaras in Haryana. He cleverly thought that this caste politics will give him an edge over others as the grateful Sikhs who constitute almost 20 percent of the population could be his great supporters to win the election. But Badal, who has dominant say in the SGPC, went over to India National Lok Dal of Chautala and challenged it making the politics extremely complex.  Badal, who has alliance with BJP in Punjab, is now fighting his partner in Haryana where he fired the salvo with new legislation. Who is who in Punjab is a million dollar question.

In this Mahabharata, Himachal’s vir senani have jumped in half in favour of the BJP and other half in favour of the Congress according to the party affiliation. While governance in Himachal is reportedly languishing and even surveys show dissatisfaction of majority of respondents with the administration as its wheel drivers are out to Haryana to fight a political battle, political observers point out.  Presence of Himachal’s leaders in Haryana is not going to bring any significant change in the voting pattern, they add.

By all estimates the returning party men concede that Congress is on a losing wicket and BJP is in ascendency there. Modi has made a difference in swerving the votes in last phase. His Bhayio Behno jadoo is working effectively with the voters and cleaning the opposition to his party. In the meantime the groups of Congress, who were getting active against the staus quo, are too quiet in Himachal as they do not see much hope in the futile endeavour they made to help Hooda. Former CM of Haryana who is in jail but was out on bail has been called back and that sends some shivers down the spine of politicians.
