Prakash Ambedkar of the Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi has severed ties with the Maha Vikas Aghadi or MVA in Maharashtra, announcing that the party will go solo in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. This comes a day after the party had given an ultimatum on deciding on his demands for seats.

He has join hands with community based organisation like OBC federation and Maratha community. Ambedkar alleged that the MVA was not ready to consider Manoj Jarange Patil factor in alliance. The MVA wanted to use the VBA to protect their dynasty politics, he alleged.

The Maha Vikas Aghadi comprises the Shiv Sena (UBT), Congress, and NCP (Sharadchandra Pawar).

Notably, the VBA had been trying hard to forge an alliance with the MVA to challenge the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA in the Lok Sabha elections

Siddharth Mokle, chief spokesperson and state vice president of the VBA, earlier claimed that a false picture is being portrayed to show that the party was responsible for the delay by the MVA in finalising a seat-sharing formula for the Lok Sabha elections.

“The VBA was constantly making statements and informing its supporters about the progress in the seat-sharing formula. The MVA constituents have a dispute over 15 parliamentary constituencies. While the Congress and Shiv Sena (UBT) are at loggerheads in 10 seats, all three parties have staked claims on the remaining five seats,” news agency PTI quoted him as saying.

The VBA had damaged the prospects of UPA candidates in Nanded, Solapur, Hatkanangale, Beed, Parbhani and Sangli seats, to name a few, in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, which ultimately helped the NDA.
