Election Results 2023: The biggest worry for Congress is that it has almost been wiped out from the Hindi speaking region. The party has government only in Himachal Pradesh. Now she is going to enter Telangana also.
Election Results 2023: Just before the Lok Sabha elections, Congress has suffered a major blow due to the defeat in three big Hindi speaking states. After this defeat, the pressure on the party to reconsider its strategy and take its allies along has increased. Time will decide how much impact the defeat will have on the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, but Congress will have to work hard to remain in the fight. Because, due to the defeat, the excitement of victory in Karnataka has been broken.
The biggest worry for Congress is that it has almost been wiped out from the Hindi speaking region. The party has government only in Himachal Pradesh. At the same time, after Karnataka in the south, the party is going to form the government on its own in Telangana also. Telangana’s victory is significant, although it will not have any significant impact on Hindi speaking states. In such a situation, it will be a big challenge for the party to maintain itself as an alternative in Hindi speaking states.
Have to win the trust of OBC voters
The defeat in these elections has made it clear that it is difficult for Congress to win the trust of OBC voters by advocating caste census. Because, there are about 41 percent OBC voters in Chhattisgarh. The party had also promised to conduct caste census, but failed to win the trust of OBC voters. In Madhya Pradesh too, Congress had promised caste census if the government was formed, but voters continued to trust BJP.
A senior party leader said that the real reasons for the defeat will be known only after reviewing the election results. However, initially it seems that Congress’s promise of caste census did not go down well with Hindi speaking voters. We will have to rethink our election strategy. He believes that even making direct comments on Prime Minister Narendra Modi may not have been liked by the voters.
The party will have to boost the morale of the workers
Victory in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh does not have any significant impact on the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Congress had won in these three states in the year 2018, despite this, in the year 2019 general elections, BJP was successful in winning 61 out of 65 seats in these states. But the morale of the party workers had increased after the victory in Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh, but it has been battered after the defeat in these elections.
The party will have to boost the morale of the workers. Party president Mallikarjun Kharge has tried to maintain the morale of the workers by saying that the performance in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh has been disappointing. But we will try to rebuild and revive ourselves in these states with full determination. Along with this, the party president can soon call a meeting of senior leaders of the three states to discuss the reasons for the defeat and decide the future strategy.
Election strategy will have to be reconsidered
The election guarantees on the basis of which Congress had won in Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh did not prove to be effective in these elections. Voters in these states found Modi’s guarantee more reliable. Along with this, the party also failed to convert the support received in these states during the Bharat Jodo Yatra into votes. In such a situation, the party will have to prepare a new election strategy.
Work will have to be done regarding the organization
The party will also have to pay special attention to its organization. Despite being in government in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, the party failed to strengthen the organization and the party had to bear the brunt of this in the elections. Even in Madhya Pradesh, the party did not give any special emphasis on organization. Whereas BJP prepared its strategy keeping the organization at the center and was successful in taking the voters to the polling booth.
