Poll Alliances - Advantage Congress

Did you read that Congress has almost finalized the seat sharing with Trinamool Congress in West Bengal  and Samajwadi party in Uttar Pradesh. This is a shot in arm for Congress that can boost its chances in winning the 2009 Union elections. As we always know, there are no permanent friends or foes in politics. Post elections there could emerge new alliances and sever old alliances. TC could possibly go with NDA if Congress and its allies could not bring numbers to form the next government. The chances of SP going with NDA is bleak because of the pseudo secular idealogies. At this moment, Congress think tank is working very well in forming alliances. 

In West Bengal, though it is a Red Bastion, the TC and Congress can significantly cut into Left's vote bank by cting Nandigram. In UP, it could possibly be BSP. I am wondering whether BJP and BSP can form an alliance. If BSP-BJP formed, then balance may tilt towards NDA.

At this stage it is Advantage Congress because of the emerging political alliances.
