Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Bengal: Central Agencies and Assembly Elections
While the farmers' agitation has completed 100 days, Assembly elections have been announced in five states in India. The democratic elections in West Bengal, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Assam and Pudducherry have been reduced to a proxy war by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party regime, with the party openly using central agencies to attack the Opposition. Meanwhile, post-election strategies are also being prepared. If the opposition parties do not win by a huge majority, it will be next to impossible for them to form governments in these states. BJP can use political strategies like that in Goa, Manipur, Madhya Pradesh or even recently in Pudducherry to capture power. In this episode of 'Hafte ki Baat', senior journalist Urmilesh analyses the electoral landscape in these five states.
