Telangana CM had said- Delhi brokers are trying to buy our MLA
Last month, Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao accused the BJP of buying MLAs. He had said – Delhi’s brokers are working to buy our MLAs by bribing them. 100 crores were offered to our 4 MLAs in a farmhouse in Telangana, but KCR’s MLAs are not for sale. He had informed the police about Operation Lotus. BJP is trying to buy 20-30 of our MLAs to topple our government.
Was asked to BJP – why are the governments falling
KCR had said – These people say that they want to capture Telangana. I want to tell the farmers that we should vote carefully. Because of such politics, we cannot fall into the deception of taking bribe. I want to ask the people of BJP why this cruelty? How much more power do you want? You have already been elected twice, then why are you bringing down the governments?
CBI’s entry was stopped in the state
The Telangana government also made strict on the entry of CBI in the state. It has been made mandatory for the agency to take the permission of the government to investigate any case in the state.
Operation Lotus failed in Rajasthan.
Police claims, deal could have been worth 100 crores
Cyberabad Police Commissioner Stephen Ravindra had claimed that it was the TRS MLAs who informed us about horse-trading. When we raided a farm house in Aziz Nagar, we recovered cash and cheques. The commissioner further said that there could have been a deal worth Rs 100 crore or more to buy the MLAs.
Horse-trading allegations in the country in the last 5 years
Talking about the last 5 years, in big states like Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, many governments have been broken and new ones have been formed due to MLAs leaving the party and joining other parties. The parties from which the MLAs went, they accused the front parties of buying the MLAs. This horse-trading of leaders in politics is called horse-trading.
Karnataka : The results of the assembly elections in Karnataka were declared in May 2018. BJP won 104 seats. Congress won 80 seats and JD(S) 37 seats. BJP leader BS Yediyurappa was made the Chief Minister, but he was asked to conduct a floor test within two days, in which the BJP fell behind with a majority. Yudiyurappa had to resign within 6 days.
After this Congress and JD(S) proposed to form a coalition government under the leadership of HD Kumaraswamy. He became the Chief Minister on 23 May. But after one year and two months, 17 MLAs of Congress and JDS resigned. Kumaraswamy’s government failed in the floor test on 23 July 2019. On 26 July, BS Yeddyurappa became the Chief Minister of the state for the fourth time.
In the 2018 Karnataka elections, BJP leader BS Yediyurappa became the Chief Minister, but he had to resign within 6 days due to lack of majority. After a year, he had to step down from the post of CM due to the resignation of 17 Congress and JD(S) MLAs. BS Yediyurappa again became the CM.
Madhya Pradesh: In the 2018 Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections, Congress became the single largest party by winning 114 seats. Congress formed the government with BSP, SSP and independent MLAs. As soon as the government was formed, the rift between Chief Minister Kamal Nath and Congress youth leader Jyotiraditya Scindia became clear.
Jyotiraditya Scindia resigned from the Congress on 10 March 2020. Along with him, 22 Congress MLAs also left the party. Scindia joined BJP the very next day. Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot accused the BJP of buying MLAs. The Supreme Court asked to conduct a floor test in the Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly on March 20. The Kamal Nath government could not present a majority and fell. After this, BJP formed the government under the leadership of Shivraj.
Congress won more seats in MP in 2018 assembly elections, but Congress failed in floor test after Jyotiraditya’s resignation after 2 years. Jyotiraditya joined the BJP and the BJP government came to power in the state under the leadership of Shivraj Singh.
Maharashtra: After the 2019 Maharashtra Assembly elections, BJP emerged as the single largest party by winning 105 seats. His ally Shiv Sena won 56 seats. In the opposition camp, the NCP won 54 seats and the Congress 44. When it came to forming the government, there was a tussle between the BJP and Shiv Sena over who would become the chief minister. Shiv Sena withdrew support to BJP. NCP, Shiv Sena and Congress together planned to form the government under the leadership of Thackeray.
In 2019, after a long political drama, Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray became the Chief Minister in the Mahavikas Aghadi government.
But to everyone’s surprise, Sharad Pawar’s nephew Ajit Pawar joined the BJP on 23 November. On the same day BJP formed the government with Devendra Fadnavis as Chief Minister and Ajit Pawar as Deputy Chief Minister. Then Congress and NCP accused BJP of buying MLAs. But within three days, Ajit Pawar left the BJP and rejoined the NCP. The BJP-Ajit Pawar government could last only 80 hours. After this, under the leadership of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress formed the government of Mahavikar Aghadi. Uddhav Thackeray became the Chief Minister.
Maharashtra Political Drama 2022: Now on June 20 this year, Shiv Sena’s Eknath Shinde rebelled from the party along with several MLAs. The government of Maha-Vikas Aghadi failed in the floor test. He formed the government on 30 June with the support of the BJP. He became the Chief Minister, while BJP leader and former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis became the Deputy Chief Minister.
Eknath Shinde had claimed Shiv Sena. His party has got the name Balasahebchi Shivsena and the symbol of sword and shield.
