The chief minister of Assam, HimantaBiswa Sarma, has downplayed the significance of the Congress party’s win in the state of Karnataka’s assembly elections, which just ended. Sarma made a statement in which he said that the Congress was overreacting to its single-state victory, whereas the BJP had won many states without being overly celebratory.
Sarma continued by saying that the Congress’s victory in Karnataka wouldn’t hurt the BJP’s chances of winning a third consecutive term in the Central Government in 2024. He said he had no doubt that the Congress party would win the election in Karnataka since the BJP would not do “that good” there politically.
When campaigning for the BJP in the Karnataka assembly elections, it’s worth noting that Sarma made the outlandish prediction that Congress wouldn’t win an election in the next century. However, the state election results showed he was mistaken, and the Congress had won.
The Congress’s triumph in Karnataka is a huge morale booster after the party had been losing ground nationally. In recent years, the party has suffered significant defeats, including losing control of key states to the BJP. However, the party’s success in Karnataka has breathed fresh life into it.
Political commentators feel that the Congress’s triumph in Karnataka is a sign of things to come, despite Sarma’s assertion that the BJP’s prospects for 2024 remain untouched. The Congress’s fortunes in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections may hinge on its success in several upcoming key state elections.
