It is said in the politics of Uttar Pradesh that the destination of Lucknow is destined only through Purvanchal. In such a situation, before the upcoming assembly elections, the jugalbandi of the Samajwadi Party and the Suhaldev Bharatiya Samaj Party has given sleep to the Bharatiya Janata Party. A BJP leader from Kashi region says that the organization will have to decide a new strategy for Purvanchal. It is worth mentioning that the 2017 assembly election was fought by the then BJP President Amit Shah along with leaders like Om Prakash Rajbhar and Anupriya Patel, who had infiltrated their caste in Purvanchal. In the politics of Purvanchal entangled in caste fabric, BJP has leaders leading all castes but except Anupriya, others do not seem to be as influential.
How will SP be stronger with Subhasp?
There is also support of more than two dozen other castes.
Shashi Pratap Singh said that our leader Om Prakash Rajbhar is a leader of exploited, deprived and backward society. Bhar, Shakya, Saini, Arkavanshi, Ark, Nonia, Teli, Tamera, Bar, Viar, Bari, Banjara, Pal, Prajapati, Kohar, Lohar, Chauhan, Nishad, Mali, Kevat, Bind, Barber, Ahirwar, Virar, Vanvasi, Shepherd, Dhimar, Dhobi, Koiri, Dom, Patjar, Gond and Valmiki are also blessed. These are all people who are far away from development. All these votes will be cast where the Subhaspa President will say. Therefore, let us assume that this time in Purvanchal, BJP will be defeated badly and will hoist the flag of SubhasSP-SP alliance.
None other than Anil emerged
How important are the voters of Rajbhar society, it can be gauged from the fact that after the break of Om Prakash Rajbhar’s ties with BJP, Anil Rajbhar was made a cabinet minister in the state. Sakaldeep Rajbhar, a resident of Ballia district, has been made a Rajya Sabha MP. BJP made Harinarayan Rajbhar its candidate in 2014 and 2019 from Ghosi Lok Sabha of Mau district. However, except for Anil Rajbhar in these three leaders, the other two leaders do not have deep penetration among their society.
BJP’s concern also increased because
The concern of BJP strategists has also increased because Ram Achal Rajbhar, who was once one of the close associates of BSP supremo Mayawati, has also turned soft towards SP. When Akhilesh Yadav’s meeting will be held in Ambedkar Nagar on November 7, Ram Achal Rajbhar and Lalji Verma will join the SP. On the other hand, Kamalakant Rajbhar, son of Sukhdev Rajbhar, who was a strong BSP from Azamgarh, has also joined the SP. In such a situation, the strategists of BJP have started churning anew with Rajbhar Samaj and SP.
