Speculation about the candidature of Bihar CM Nitish Kumar from Phulpur parliamentary seat, which is engaged in forming a grand alliance with the opposition, has created a political stir. While Nitish’s entry in this backward-dominated seat has started generating enthusiasm among the workers of opposition parties, political mathematicians believe that it may also polarize backward, Dalit and minority voters along with other anti-BJP votes along with the Grand Alliance. . If this happens then the BJP will be given a tough competition in the coming Loksabha elections.
The electoral equation of the entire Purvanchal may change if Bihar CM Nitish Kumar’s candidature is decided from the Kurmi-dominated Phulpur parliamentary seat. The Kurmi candidate has won eight times in the elections held so far in the Phulpur Lok Sabha seat, which was the birthplace of the country’s first Prime Minister Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. Apart from being a Kurmi, Nitish Kumar is known as a strong leader of this community in Bihar. It is believed that after Nitish comes from this seat, the second largest Kurmi fraternity in UP after Yadavs can easily unite in the opposition’s court.
