New Delhi : Five phases of voting in the Lok Sabha elections have been completed. Now only two phases of voting are left. In such a situation, people have started estimating the seats along with victory and defeat. Along with this, questions are being raised from common people as well as political analysts regarding the strategy of the opposition. One name in this sequence is that of election strategist Prashant Kishore. Prashant Kishore believes that the opposition has missed many opportunities to win over BJP. Of these, the opposition had three such opportunities where it could have defeated the BJP. Prashant Kishore said that after the inauguration of Ram temple, the opposition has completely laid down its arms. By the time he woke up again in February, it was too late. By the time the Bharat faction came into action, it was too late…BJP had regained its lost ground. While talking to a TV channel, Prashant Kishore clearly said that this is not the first or the last time. Not when the opposition has lost the opportunity. He said that I have already said that in a country like India, if you are in the opposition, this opportunity comes to you every one or two years. He said that I have said on the basis of statistics that in our country the Congress led opposition has had such opportunities three times, which has been a period of 12 to 15 months, when BJP, Modi or their government was on the back foot. However, the opposition could not take advantage of these.

When Aam Aadmi Party won the elections in 2015

Prashant Kishor, who made strategies for Congress, TMC and JDU, said that when Aam Aadmi Party won the elections in Delhi in 2015, BJP suffered a crushing defeat in Bihar in November of the same year. He said that elections were held in Bengal, Assam and Tamil Nadu throughout the year from 2015 to May 2016, in these 18 months BJP did not get success anywhere. Only in Assam was BJP successful in winning the elections with the help of alliance. In such a situation, the opposition and Congress had 15 months time. Modi was new at that time. Whether his cultural image started being formed or not. At that time there was not much control over power or system. At that time the opposition had time to make a comeback. At that time Congress and its allies did not make much effort.

Post demonetization period

Prashant Kishore said that after demonetization a second opportunity came. At that time, call it economic despair or rural despair, it was visible. Right after demonetization, BJP got victory in UP but before Gujarat elections, Patel movement started and Maratha movement started in Maharashtra. Such an environment was beginning to develop in the entire country which was not easy for BJP or PM Modi. In the election results of Gujarat in November 2017, Congress had its best performance in 20 years. BJP was barely successful in saving 15 seats in Gujarat. After this he was defeated in Karnataka. After this, BJP lost three consecutive states Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. This means that from mid-2017 to the end of 2018, there was once again a period of 15 to 17 months when BJP was on the backfoot. At that time the opposition had a chance to present a challenge. He missed that opportunity.

After the second wave of COVID-19

Prashant Kishore said that the third opportunity came again when the second wave of Covid came. The results in the Bengal Assembly elections were not in favor of BJP. During the second wave of Covid, the government was in a way on the backfoot. At that time it was not known what would happen? Narendra Modi's popularity has declined for the first time in 10 years in the survey. The time was June 2021. After losing the Bengal elections, the period of about a year was challenging for BJP and Modi. The opposition again lost that opportunity. Prashant Kishore said that the last chance came when the opposition formed India Alliance. The opposition united in June. There was excitement among his supporters in the country that this time perhaps he would challenge BJP or Modi with the help of a strong opposition. If they had succeeded in doing this, BJP's numbers could have been 220-240.
