Sharad Pawar and his party play a huge role in this formation. But where does congress stands in this new political formation is uncertain? Since these parties are widening their base they have a problem with congress and its way of functioning.

Congress Leaders And Their Statements

On the other hand, Congress leaders make statements through various mediums that they wish to contest elections independently and not in an alliance. Maharashtra’s congress president Nana Patole has several times pressed on this point. Thus these statements make allied parties feel unwanted. But Congress leaders need to understand that they are in no position to contest elections independently and one of the prime reasons for it is the leadership vacuum.

In the current scenario, as Sharad Pawar rightly said, “Leadership is not an important issue for us. Providing a strong and credible platform to the people is important for us. The question of who will lead it is a secondary matter.” Even though in today’s media address Mamata Banerjee criticized Congress which she has done earlier as well Sharad Pawar very diligently stated that no party will be who opposes BJP will be excluded which was meant for ‘Congress.’
