Mulayam Singh Yadav , the Supremo of SP has pulled out from the “grand alliance” of Janata Parivar ahead of Bihar Elections. Reportedly, SP was offered 5 seats to contest in the elections and that became a reason of Mulayam’s stepping back. The party has decided to contest all on its own.
While, SP is not a grand player in Bihar politics but contesting alone would favour BJP as the Nitish-Lalu alliance may suffer vote-cuts. BJP claimed that comparatively low turn out in Swabhiman Rally called by Janata Parivar has been a reason why SP preferred stepping back. Some room for relief and may be laughter for BJP ??
While PM Modi has held several rallies in Bihar, the Swabhiman Rally by the newly formed alliance of BJP opponents was held to lure the Bihar voters in upcoming Elections. Attacks and counter-attacks by Modi and Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav at eachother has indicated that none is willing to fall short of its opponent.
While PM Modi has announced monetary aids packages for the state , Nitish has made sure he counter attacks PM Modi on his ” DNA ” related statement targeted at him. He has made alliance with Congress and even got open support from AAP head Arvind Kejriwal.
All in all, all the parties are putting in their entire effort to make sure Bihar Elections stand in their favour. Once again it is PM Modi vs all and this time it seems tough for BJP to fetch up victory in Bihar.
Gujarat recently saw a new name of terror in politics by the name of Hardik Patel who shook Gujarat governance and held it hostage for couple of days. Major Gujarat cities saw riot like situations because of his arrest and release. He is demanding OBC status for Patels and subsequently reservations in govt jobs and seats etc. He was posing to be a great threat until his association with AAP has gone viral and also allegedly a sex video. He has become a threat for the BJP govt in Gujarat and yet another face of filthy politics in the country.
