The politics of courtesy – Congress to leave two Legislative Council seats for NC

After the NC put its support behind Ghulam Nabi Azad in the recent Rajya Sabha (RS) elections, cementing Azad’ berth as the member of opposition, it is now the turn of Congress to reciprocate the favour. It may seem as though the Congress leaders are lobbying hard for the legislative council (LC) seats, but the party is likely to leave the two seats for the National Conference to score win on.

Among the total of eleven LC seats, BJP-PDP combine is set to win nine seats comfortably for which the elections are to be held on March 2. Out of the nine, the PDP is likely to give five seats to BJP and keep four since PDP won two out of the four RS seats and BJP got only one, with one going to Congress with the backing of NC.
