New Delhi: All the political parties are gearing up for the upcoming assembly polls in nine states in 2023, along with looking ahead to the general election in 2024.
The political atmosphere is gradually heating up. Rahul Gandhi’s famous ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ has been turning out to be successful because people from all walks of life are taking part and walking shoulder to shoulder with Rahul.
The BJP and others have taken a leaf from Rahul’s book and are planning to carry out political yatras to entice the voters.
The BJP in Karnataka is set to go ahead with its Jana Sankalpa Yatra in its own ruled state. The saffron party will bring out the Jan Aakrosh Yatra in Congress-ruled Rajasthan. However, the Bihar chief minister, Nitish Kumar, is not far behind in considering touring across the country after his statewide Samadhan Yatra.
The year 2023 is crucial for the political parties, as assembly elections will be held in such states as Tripura, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Karnataka, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Mizoram, and Telangana. It is likely that elections may also be held in the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir.
The assembly polls in these states will not only set the political tone; it is not wrong to call them a semifinal before the 2024 parliamentary election. Political parties would not like to leave any stone unturned in trying to strengthen and expand their support.
A political yatra has taken place to convince the people of their achievements. In the coming days, it is likely that numerous yatras will be carried out on the verge of Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra, which got underway in September 2022 and will conclude on January 30.
Though not as extensive, long marches are crisscrossing states such as Tripura, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Bihar, adding to the election heat amid the winter chill.
