WILL PRIYANKA HURT BUA AND BHATIJA?

India Today - - COVER STORY: CONGRESS -

The SP wor­ries she’ll take away Mus­lim votes, but be­lieves the Congress will dam­age the BJP more

If she pulls in non-Jatav Dalit votes, which had moved to the BJP, she’ll in­di­rectly help the BSP

May also help the SP-BSP by woo­ing non-Ya­dav OBCs such as Kur­mis away from the BJP

Her en­try may prompt the SP-BSP to re­jig the poll al­liance, though Mayawati is yet to re­lent

Party in­sid­ers say lead­ers of the three par­ties are likely to in­for­mally agree on con­stituency-wise as­sess­ment to put up friendly fights, wher­ever needed, to min­imise dam­age
