Why are Governments of Opposition Parties not Stable?


After the drop scene of Madhya Pradesh, all eyes are set on the ongoing political drama in Rajasthan. Meanwhile, Maharashtra CM, Shri Uddhav Thackeray challenged the forces who believe in toppling the governments of opposition ruled states. He says he heads a three-wheeled government in Maharashtra.

Thackeray used the three wheels metaphor to show it is difficult to maintain balance with three wheels. But a balance is automatically maintained where there is harmony. Uddhav was referring to Bharatiya Janta Party which has been his party’s ally for decades. BJP in engaging in the toppling of governments led by opposition to establish their supremacy.Congress formed government in Madhya Pradesh, but it is now ruled by BJP. How did this happen can be seen in what is happening in Rajasthan?

Maharashtra has a joint government of Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP. All three parties formed the government together despite their political differences.It is quite uncommon for political parties with such contrasting opinions to join hands. Uddhav Thackeray is a Ram Bhakt. He will attend the inauguration rituals of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Congress is also in favour of the temple. However, it is a different story that Sonia Gandhi once questioned the existence of Lord Rama.

Shiv Sena and Congress standing together make it clear that Mumbai is far away for BJP, which is desperate to gain ground in Maharashtra. This definitely doesn’t mean that BJP strategists will give up. All we can do is wait for what the future brings.

But what is to be pondered upon is how the MLAs who have been following Congress’ ideology till now are motivated to change their party? This question is applicable to the leaders of other parties who abandon their principles and ideology to gain power overnight as well.

All politicians know that common people play the main role in the making of a successful political career. Still, if they choose their personal interests over the aspirations of people, then it is the most vulgar face of politics. Whatever happened in Madhya Pradesh was an example of this vulgarity. The Rajasthan saga is yet to unfold.

Now, if the Chief Minister of Maharashtra feels there is a challenge for him, then it is quite clear that it is BJP and its expansionist policies at work. This cycle will not stop. People have to come forward and raise their voices to stop this.If people stop voting for these opportunist leaders, then only this trend of “Aaya Ram, Gaya Ram” will end…
