Nitish Kumar News: Even though the Lok Sabha elections are in 2024, but the political mercury has heated up amidst the speculation of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar contesting from the Phulpur Lok Sabha seat of Prayagraj. To measure this political temperature, the team of ABP News took stock of the political equation from ground zero and talked to the people.
Meanwhile, it was learned that this fight is not only of Phulpur, but of 120 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. Especially there is a fight to claim rights on the Kurmi vote bank. Now some people here welcomed Nitish Kumar, but many people believe that Nitish first needs to prove his usefulness in Bihar in a better way. Kesari Devi Patel, the sitting BJP MP from Phulpur, believes that the people of Phulpur drive away people from outside.
In fact, after separating from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Nitish Kumar has been meeting big opposition leaders for the last 1 month and is trying to mobilize them. Even though he has repeatedly mentioned in front of the media that he should not become the Prime Minister, but at the same time he also says that he will not allow BJP to form the government in 2024 at any cost.
Nitish’s eyes on 120 seats!
The biggest stronghold of the BJP is Uttar Pradesh, where even today the BJP has 66 seats out of 80 Lok Sabha seats, while one is with its ally Apna Dal. BJP is trying to take it above 70 in the coming Lok Sabha elections and from here begins the story of Nitish Kumar trying to become the undeclared face of the opposition.
If sources are to be believed, Nitish Kumar is eyeing 120 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. With the help of Lalu Prasad Yadav’s party RJD in Bihar and Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, he is trying to stop the invincible chariot of Bharatiya Janata Party.
What is Nitish Kumar’s plan
If sources are to be believed, Nitish Kumar’s plan is to vote 100 percent of Kurmis in his favor in Kurmi-dominated Phulpur. At the same time, with the help of Yadavs and Muslims, which are considered to be the traditional votes of the Samajwadi Party, the Lok Sabha should be reached, but this plan is not going to be limited to Phulpur only.
Where will Kurmi vote go?
In fact, the philosophy behind this is that with the help of Phulpur, about 13 percent of the Kurmi vote bank of Uttar Pradesh should be brought in favor of the opposition alliance, which is standing with the BJP in the last four elections. Along with this, Kurmi dominated seats like Prayagraj, Kaushambi, Pratapgarh, Bhadohi, Mirzapur, Sonbhadra, Banda-Chitrakoot, Amethi, Gonda, Bahraich can be won.
After Phulpur town, we took stock of the rural areas. There were mixed reactions. The people of Devnahari village of Phulpur Lok Sabha constituency believe that Nitish Kumar’s contesting elections will have an impact, as Phulpur has a large number of Kurmi fraternity votes, which is a big factor.
the failed formula
If we look at the politics of UP, before the formula that seems to be being made in 2024, a similar experiment has been done in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. After a long time, both Mayawati and Mulayam Singh Yadav were seen on the same stage, but it could not be of much use.
Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party, the two big parties of Uttar Pradesh, had formed an alliance thinking that if backward and dalit unite, then it will be difficult for anyone to form government, but politics is not arithmetic and the results of 2019 Lok Sabha elections are its biggest Great example. The people had given 65 out of 80 Lok Sabha seats to the BJP’s account, defeating the plans of both the leaders, while the Samajwadi Party had to be satisfied with only 10 BSP and 5 seats.
What are the Uttar Pradesh caste statistics
- Dalits – 25%
- Brahmins – 10 percent
- Backward – 35 percent (Yadav 13, Kurmi 12 and 10 percent other)
- Muslim – 17 percent
- Kshatriya – 5 percent
