Mahagathbandhan’s chances of regaining power in Bihar: A small mistake by RJD leader Ratan Yadav, who emerged as the largest party in the recently concluded Bihar assembly elections, removed him from the chief minister’s chair. It’s not us but the electoral figures. His desire to become a CM was improved because of the sporadic of several small parties who had been with him until a few days before the election.
Rjd, who performed brilliantly on its own, could not save the alliance from breaking in the last moment. In fact, two small parties have an important role to play in bringing the NDA to power in this election. Former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi’s party Hum and VIP got 4-4 seats in this election. A few days before the election, the two parties were part of the RJD-led grand alliance.
In addition, the RLSP was also a part of the Grand Alliance till a few days ago. Upendra Kushwaha’s party, though not getting any seats in this election, had a vote percentage of 1.77 per cent. It won the AIMIM in five seats in Seemanchal, aligned with Owaisi’s party.
According to a report by hindustan times, when we left the party grand alliance as part of the NDA, some Congress leaders talked about the sharing of respectable seats with two other parties of the Grand Alliance, the RLSP and the VIP. But the rjd and the Congress had agreed that the RJD would not be of any significant benefit from Upendra Kushwaha.
Kushwaha then left the Grand Alliance and formed a third alliance with Owaisi’s party and the BSP. Out of this, AIMIM won five seats while BSP got one seat. Both the vote percentages were 1.24 per cent and 1.49 per cent respectively.
Not only that, Vaip, a major force in this election, left the Grand Alliance on October 3. He left the Grand Alliance at the time when the stunning Yadav was holding a press conference with fellow parties on seat sharing. At that time, the RJD had asked for vip seats out of 144 seats in its quota.
According to the report, the central leadership of the Congress did not want Kushwaha and other smaller parties to move out of the Grand Alliance, while the other faction believed that Manjhi, Kushwaha and Sahni were not doing any use of the Grand Alliance. Political analyst Anjani Kumar Jha says that if the Congress had been given a few fewer seats than 70 and had moved these smaller parties together, the picture would probably have been different today.
