Following the recent Lok Sabha election results, two Members of Parliament from Rajasthan, who had contested in alliance with Congress, have indicated they may part ways. Hanuman Beniwal, the newly elected MP from the Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP), and Rajkumar Roat, MP from the Bhartiya Adivasi Party (BAP), expressed their dissatisfaction with their treatment post-election.

Hanuman Beniwal voiced his displeasure at not being invited to the INDIA bloc meetings held in Delhi on June 1 and 4. “When I inquired about this, I was told that my party is too small, which I consider an insult,” said Beniwal. He further noted that state Congress leaders failed to acknowledge his significant contribution to the party’s success in Rajasthan.

Beniwal claimed that his alliance with Congress brought in three lakh votes directly due to RLP’s support, while Congress benefitted from an additional 20 lakh votes overall. “If the alliance had been formed earlier and some Congress leaders had not created obstacles, Congress could have won more seats. Despite this, I remain committed to fighting against the BJP,” Beniwal added.

Meanwhile, Rajkumar Roat of the Bhartiya Adivasi Party declared his intention to stay independent. “We will remain independent and fight for the rights of the tribal areas. In the current scenario, with the NDA forming a coalition government, we do not wish to associate with anyone,” Roat stated. However, he did mention the possibility of supporting the INDIA bloc if necessary, acknowledging the support from Congress leaders during the campaign.

Roat assured, “We had contested the elections independently and will continue to do so. However, if required, we will align with the INDIA alliance.”

Both MPs, Beniwal from Nagaur and Roat from Banswara, had a pre-poll alliance with Congress. The alliance with BAP was formed after Congress had already declared its candidate, leading to internal conflicts and Congress campaigning against its own candidate on the seat contested by Roat.

This development highlights the ongoing challenges and potential fractures within political alliances, especially post-election, as parties navigate their future strategies and relationships.
