The con­flict in the op­po­si­tion has brought out the in­her­ent com­pli­ca­tions that re­sult in a clash of am­bi­tions among lead­ers. Chan­drababu Naidu (TDP) was keen on a meet­ing of the op­po­si­tion be­tween the end of polling and dec­la­ra­tion of re­sults; Mayawati and Ma­mata Banerjee, both as­pir­ing to be PM, are in favour of do­ing so af­ter the ver­dict. The op­po­si­tion did not de­clare its PM can­di­date to avoid bick­er­ing dur­ing elec­tions. Broad op­po­si­tion unity is a mi­rage in the face of com­pet­i­tive pol­i­tics. Ev­ery­one will de­mand his/her pound of flesh sooner than later.
