It is the season of turncoats in the 2019 mahayudh - with top leaders and spokespersons of parties jumping ship to the other side.Today - the BJP's dalit leader Udit Raj joined the Congress party - accusing the BJP of being an anti-Dalit party - this comes on the heels of BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha joining the Congress - while Priyanka Chaturvedi and Tom Vadakkan defected to the Shiv Sena and BJP respectively. In the Odisha battlefield - BJD's Jay Panda has joined the resurgent BJP along with other BJD and Congress leaders - In West Bengal - 18 TMC candidates are from the Left and Congress while 6 BJP candidates are from the TMC and Left - in Uttar Pradesh - it is RLD's Jaya Prada who is now contesting on a BJP ticket - while BJP MP Kirit Azad from Bihar has joined the Congress - is contesting from Dhanbad in Jharkhand- Dynamic political alignments in the election season - it is purely ideological or purely opportunistic - decoding that question on Election Epicentre.
