The current Political situation in India for President Election and some of the states are in media gallery due to the hot happenings inside the party matters. One of the ruling regional parties of odisha BJD (Biju Janata Dal)
The party BJD started a look in national politics after the demise of Legendary Leader Biju Pattnaik on 1999.During these 13 yrs of time BJD has never taste any political defeat or internal dissident. One major happening took place this yr May 29th 2012, while the Party chief and CM of Odisha was out of country for discussion with FII and industrialists how to make Odisha stronger in economic prospect.
Taking the absence of Naveen Pattanik, no other man in BJD, the all time Political Advisor of Naveen and late Biju Pattnaik, Mr Pyari Mohan Mohapatra the MP, RS from BJD, started the number game to topple
BJD Govt and vacate the CM post for self or someone from his supporter as per the media news highlighted. This is a hard time for BJD Supremo Mr Naveen Pattnaik and Suspended MP, Mr Pyari Mohan Mohapatra
In national Politics many a times the topple and shuffle of party members leads the creation of new parties named as regional Party. On the verse of self or public interest some party got survived and some lost their ground reality in the past days. Here is a speculation like the suspension of Mr Mohapatra who was timely said as the second power center of BJD is full isolated now, Can a Politician having high ambition of self
Position get him/her self idle, it will be a million dollar question may be Mr Mohapatra is the right person to clarify his Political ambition next. But if we revisit history in national politics of India, many regional parties came to politics and get huge support from people of their own state and country too. Lets have a look some of the successful regional parties who are played vital role in their states after being sidelined from the mainstream party due to some internal obligations.
In Maharashtra: NCP, Nationalist Congress Party, born after the untimely demise of Late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, when Madam Sonia Gandhi took charge of Indian National Congress, with a strong voice of Opposition the Maratha Stall wall Mr Sharad Pawar flied his own party and make its journey so smooth till now in National Politics.
MNS: Maharashtra Nava Nirmana Sena, It's a party lead by Mr Raj Saheb Thackeray, the main and frontline leader of ShivSena & nephew of Mr Bala Sheab Thackeray, with the base of Marathi card he has also made his debut very fabulously and proved many elections with amazing result that makes other parties in Maharashtra troublesome situation.
RJD: Lead by Mr Lalu Prasad Yadav, the Ex CM of Bihar and many times Cabinet Minister at center Govt under the leadership of various different party Prime Ministers, He also penetrate nice favor for his party and grab power in Bihar for some years,
JD (U)--Janata Dal (United) at Bihar, the key Partner of NDA Govt is leading Govt in Bihar since last 10 years. Both RJD and JD (U) get born after the split of Janata Dal, taking the national President issue in center politics.
TMC: Trina Mula Congress, All time Media Glory and the iron lady Mamata Banerjee lead the regional party with all highs n lows of the 30 yr Monarch of Left Parties (CPI and CPM) at West Bengal got grounded and get absolute mandate to TMC.
Shiromani Akali Dal: In Punjab , Mr Badal is able to swing his party and bag the support of Punjab people since decades.
AIDMK, it's in Tamilnadu, getting the alternate terms as per the people in Chennai never mind to bring them into power alternately.
TDP: In south, lead by the great Chandrababu Naidu leader who has made Hyderabad into world globe during his chief minister ship time, Having his own presence is Andhra Pradesh very strongly opposition to National Congress.
The most current and highlighted new born regional party, YSR Cong lead by Mr Jagan Reddy, the only son of the late CM of AP, Mr YSR Reddy, who was the lost favorable Cong Leader for Madam Sonia from AP.
Time made it wrong, Jagan couldn't make him happy with Cong and flow his own party in the name of his father YSR Cong.Just now the bye-election of 17 MLA and 1 MP seat, made Jagan more popular could bag
15/17 MLA seat and the 1 MP seat, one-sidedly although he is being inside the Jail on CBI Charge of huge money laundering case.
Why I was talking about all these above story it must create a sensation to you, As our state ruling BJD is in the door of a string opposition from the all time high and close advisor of Naveen Pattanaik is getting a hard time now. Even though he is suspended, it doesn't mean it's the last over of Game as the Political Analyst says in Odisha. My Point of discussion is can we see the suspended MP, Mr Mohapatra emerge as like the above said regional parties and made their presence in state/national politics. What is cooking behind Mr Mohapatra's mind no body knows may be his close mate has the insight on his next course of action. But as we know the man who was with all high power and respect can not seat idle and silent for sure. If it's the case of flowing his own party and taking charge of any national
Party to elad the presence in Odisha... It's going to be a Billion Dollar Question. Will he be able to proof himself without taking the name of Biju or Naveen Pattanaik; it's due to these two names he was at his best position and high respect in BJD party. Otherwise he was simply an administrator in the eyes of People of Odisha. The Political dilemma in Odisha shows some big round of changes in BJD will come up to handle and challenge the mis conduct expects from the supporter group of Mr Pyari Mohaptra soon, The good part of the 29th May 2012, drama at Plot#111, Saheednagar made Mr CM , Naveen Pattanaik more stronger and mature
The act of handling the dissident Naveen Pattnaik has shown from last 13 yrs in BJD made him more popular in the State and Party. So neither way this suspension will hamper the party image or Mr Clean CM, Naveen Pattanik image.
During the tenure of 13 yrs into active Politics Mr Naveen Pattanik has taken many challenging steps in BJD, by doing the suspension and inclusion of high profile leaders in Odisha Politics, On the way of political career those leaders never thought of the way they treated by BJD Supremo Naveen Pattanaik in last days. So the current scenario of Political destabilization in BJD is no way going to be fruitful as n independent viewer I can assume.
The People of Odisha knows well how they were benefitted by BJD govt during the last 13 yrs, all credit of development undoubtedly goes to Mr Naveen Pattanaik as a man of clean corruption free Govt, Those in Govt were involved in Corruption, either Minister or Beaurocrats no one has escaped from the agony of Mr Pattanaik, So how can Mr Pattanaik would have rethink twice before suspending the 2 Ministers, 2 MLAs and close Advisor MR Mohapatra.
Because this is the in born quality of Mr Pattanaik, not to rethink while the mis happenings or foreign particles playing game inside the people Party (BJD). The party can not be a corporate house any more, will run as a democratic way, and is being proven by the BJD Supremo.
