Congress veering round to support grand alliance
Congress Party, in the wake of continued setbacks in various poll outcome, appears to be veering round to nurture the grand alliance format that worked well in Bihar.


The Congress on Thursday said that in the run-up to 2019, it would forge State-specific alliances to take on the challenge of a resurgent Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). This would include working towards building a stronger coalition in Uttar Pradesh with both the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).

Congress general secretary C.P. Joshi has said, "We need to frame a counter narrative to take on that challenge. But we will never change our ideology.

Dr. Joshi sought to replicate the Bihar grand alliance in which the Janata Dal-United (JD-U), the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress participated, and the understanding with the Left Parties in West Bengal in 2016.
