United over Rahul Gandhi, Bihar Oppn finds an issue to counter BJP


PATNA:Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification from the Lok Sabha following the Surat courtroom verdict that convicted him in a felony defamation case has given new hope to Opposition events in Bihar to nook the BJP.

The worry of central probe businesses is being thought-about as the explanation for this “unprecedented” unity amongst opposition events over the Rahul Gandhi problem. The household of Bihar’s former Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav is repeatedly underneath the radar of central businesses.

When requested about Rahul Gandhi’s conviction and disqualification, Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav stated: “We are watching everything, and will answer (the BJP) in the best way when the time comes.”

Along with his remarks, Tejashwi made it a loud and clear message that he’s able to struggle in opposition to BJP.

“BJP keeps the Opposition busy in court cases and uses the Hindutva card to win elections. But now, Rahul Gandhi has given a clear message that they (Opposition) do not fear court cases and investigation agencies. And, the Hindutva card of the BJP will be countered through the caste combination,” a Congress chief stated.

Bihar is essential for the BJP within the 2024 Lok Sabha elections as that is the state the place BJP isn’t in energy. Furthermore, the caste equation can also be not splendid for the BJP within the state.

On the subject of the caste equation right here, Muslims have greater than 18 per cent vote share adopted by Yadavs (16 per cent), Kushwahas (12 per cent) and higher castes comprising Bhumihar, Brahmins, Rajput and Kayasth have round 15 per cent votes . These are estimated figures and the precise numbers can be revealed after the completion of caste-based census within the state, which is at the moment underway and the state authorities has introduced that it will likely be accomplished in 11 months.

The political events within the state strongly consider that caste equations are the one weapon to counter the Hindutva politics of the BJP.

Muslims and Yadavs are the core voters of RJD and Luv (Kurmi having 4 per cent voters)-Kush (Kushwaha having round 12 per cent voters) is the core voters of JD-U. Then again, the higher caste voters within the state are tilted in direction of BJP. Now, as BJP leaders are conscious that they can’t simply penetrate into the MY (Muslim-Yadav) equation of the RJD, they go for weakening the JD-U vote financial institution. The voters of Kushwaha neighborhood are on the goal checklist of the saffron get together within the state.

The way in which Upendra Kushwaha fashioned a brand new get together – Rashtriya Lok Janata Dal (RLJD) – by leaving the JD-U and now brazenly supporting the BJP is a sign that the BJP would harm the Kushwaha vote financial institution of Nitish Kumar.

Upendra Kushwaha has brazenly introduced that “there is no leader who could challenge Narendra Modi in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections”.

To strenghthen its maintain over the Kushwaha neighborhood, the saffron get together has even made Samrat Chaudhary – who belongs to the Kushwaha neighborhood – the get together’s state president. The concept is to offer a message to the voters of Kushwaha neighborhood that Nitish Kumar isn’t their chief.

To counter the technique of BJP, JD-U ready jumbo jet groups, protecting in thoughts the caste equations.

The nationwide group comprising 32 leaders is led by get together’s nationwide President Lalan Singh, whereas the state group with 252 leaders in it’s being led by get together’s state chief Umesh Kushwaha.

JD-U, to maintain Kushwaha vote financial institution intact, has given the accountability to 2 Kushwaha leaders to steer Rohtas and Muzaffarpur districts. The concept is to make up for the lack of Kushwaha votes after Upendra Kushwaha left the get together. Additional, it has appointed Mangni Lal Mandal as nationwide vice chairman of the get together to make a substitute of Upendra Kushwaha.

JD-U has given area to 5 leaders of Muslim neighborhood within the nationwide group. Apart from them, 4 leaders belonging to higher castes, eight leaders of Lav-Kush neighborhood, two leaders of Yadav neighborhood, six leaders of EBC and two Mahadalit leaders are additionally given area within the nationwide group.

Bihar has 40 Lok Sabha seats and can play an important function in deciding the destiny of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In 2019, BJP-led NDA that additionally had help of JD-U in Bihar had received 39 out of 40 Lok Sabha seats. Nonetheless, the scenario has modified now; In 2024, BJP is within the Opposition and has to contest in opposition to an alliance of seven events headed by Nitish Kumar. It has to face the may of Lalu Prasad Yadav, Jitan Ram Manjhi and left events leaders. After the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ and the problem of Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification has given new life to the Congress in Bihar.

That is the explanation why BJP’s ‘Chanakya’ and Union Home Minister Amit Shah is making frequent visits to Bihar to strengthen his get together’s place.

Reacting on Shah’s go to, RJD senior chief and MLA Bhai Virendra stated: “The visit of Amit Shah will not have much impact in Bihar. People are aware that the BJP means ‘Badka Jhutha Party’. It had come into power with many promises and none of them were fulfilled. Unemployment, price rise, farmers issues still haunt the state and the country… The Mahagathbandhan will win all 40 seats in the state.”
