In Majhwan, BJP got 44.96 percent of the total voter turnout last time. Whereas the Nishad Party got only 1.59 percent of the vote.
SP replaced Damodar Maurya and gave ticket to Rohit Shukla
Dr. Vinod Kumar, who has entered the field this time with the support of BJP, is turning into a challenge in front of other parties like a wrestler. The SP has fielded Rohit Shukla alias Lallu, replacing Damodar Maurya on the last day, while Shiv Shankar Dubey from Congress and Archana Mishra from Lok Janshakti Party and Pushpalata Bind from BSP are filling the election campaign. Nishad Party has fielded SP’s declared candidate from Gyanpur as its candidate.
SP workers had demonstrated at the SP district office to declare Dr. Vinod Kumar Bind as the candidate from Majhwan instead of Gyanpur seat. The SPs raised their voice for the removal of Damodar Maurya. Vinod was working on the land for about 4 years. Even before the party took any decision, Dr. Vinod Kumar Bind switched sides.
Shuchismita Maurya became MLA from BJP last time
In view of the rising rebellion against Damodar Maurya, the SP chief has also taken his step back and fielded Rohit Shukla alias Lallu. It is believed that there will be a thorn fight on this seat. BJP’s Shuchismita Maurya became MLA last time after defeating Ramesh Bind, who occupied this seat of Brahmin and Bind dominated area three times with BSP flag. She is the daughter-in-law of former BJP MLA Ramchandra Maurya from this seat.
Brahmin in election fray from LJP
Shuchismita Maurya was pushed back by the party and the seat was handed over to the ally. Amidst the ongoing tussle in the seat, the caste vote is sure to be scattered. Brahmins are in the electoral fray from Congress, SP and LJP. Whereas candidates from the same bind community are also in the fray. The election season has become interesting as the candidates of various parties have come forward.
