Jharkhand Assembly Election: If BJP's Chief Minister was a tribal

Jharkhand Assembly Election

When the BJP won in Jharkhand in 2014, it was expected that the BJP would make a tribal a chief minister

 But to everyone's surprise, the BJP made Raghubar Das, a non-tribal, the chief minister. This was the first time that a non-tribal was made Chief Minister.

Like 2019, in 2014, before Maharashtra, assembly elections were held in Maharashtra and Haryana. BJP too did the same there. After winning in Haryana, a non-Jat was made the Chief Minister and in Maharashtra a non-Maratha.

Five years after this, now that when elections were held in these states again, the BJP's power was seen slipping from the hands of these three states. In Haryana, the BJP formed a government anyway, but Maharashtra and Jharkhand did not have a chair. Pie

It is now being said that this strategy of choosing the Chief Minister of Modi-Shah seems to be failing. Was there really any such strategy? If it was, why was such a strategy made?

Senior journalist Shekhar Iyer says that in these states, the BJP did a new experiment. In Maharashtra, an attempt was made to create a new equation by sitting a non-Maratha in the Chief Minister's chair.

But, "This equation has failed, because wherever there are dominant castes, it is not ready to accept this new experiment. In Jharkhand, for the first time, BJP made a non-tribal a Chief Minister. Wherever he created new equations They didn't succeed there. "

At the same time, Hitender Rao, who keeps an eye on the politics of Haryana, says that in 2014, after BJP won the elections in Haryana Assembly, Manohar Lal Khattar was made the Chief Minister, he was not the face of the Chief Minister before the election.

'Politics tries to polarize'

But in the state elections this time, BJP introduced Manohar Lal Khattar as the face of the Chief Minister from the beginning. Similarly, in Maharashtra, before the last election, Devendra Fadnavis was not put in front of the people as the Chief Minister's face.

According to senior journalist Hitender Rao, BJP had tried to polarize the state by making Manohar Lal Khattar the chief minister in Haryana.

According to him, the result of this political polarization of BJP was later seen in the municipal elections in many places.

He explains, "Haryana has always had the issue of Jat versus non-Jat. In Haryana, Jats are around 25 percent. Here it is the largest Dominant community. In non-Jat, Scheduled Castes, Backward Castes, Brahmins, Ahirs, People from Rajput, Vaishya community, Agarwal community come. These communities felt that from 1996 to 2014 there has been some Jat leadership. "

"These communities felt that the rule of Jats had been established in Haryana. But when they made a non-Jat chief minister, then those who were looking for a non-Jat leader, they felt that BJP is a party which is non- Jat supports the leadership, promotes it. Because of this many people joined BJP and Manohar Lal Khattar. "

"But this did not go down well with the Jats. Their population is about 25 percent in Haryana and the state is a very powerful and influential community. They gradually drifted away from the BJP and the result was seen in the 2019 Vidhan Sabha elections. "

Hitender Rao says that because of this, the Jat leaders who stood by the BJP in the elections also lost, including two big ministers. "Jat voters also taught a lesson to BJP's Jat candidates. BJP had to pay a heavy price for this."

On the other hand, Sujata Anandan, who monitors the politics of Maharashtra, says: -

The BJP does not carry all classes together, it makes a classification, which is now becoming clear. Their way is to move forward by dividing people. They think that they will move forward with the support of one or two classes. This is causing a lot of damage to the BJP.

In the 2014 elections in Maharashtra, Sharad Pawar said that do you want to bring Peshwa again?

Peshwa was a Brahmin. However, his kingdom was called Maratha state only. But he ruled by sidelining Chhatrapati Shivaji and his descendants.

But he used to rule in the name of Shivaji only when he could walk. Hence there was a lot of hatred between the Marathas and the Brahmins.

He did not want to give power in the hands of Brahmins, and the same Chief Ministers from YV Chavan in Maharashtra did the same, keeping the Brahmins with little sideline. He used to respect them, but did not allow them to become partners in power.

But when he put forward Devendra Fadnavis, Fadnavis did not understand that Marathas have been ruling since the time of Chhatrapati Shivaji and many Marathas have been Chief Ministers even after independence. It is not that the Brahmin Chief Minister was new or not the OBC or Dalit Chief Minister, but those people also took everyone along at that time.

Shiv Sena Chief Minister Manohar Joshi was also a Brahmin, but he also took everyone along. But as Chief Minister, Fadnavis did not pay attention to the angry Marathas and Dalits for a long time. Then tried to confront them. The Marathas were tried against the Dalits, but that did not happen. For this, there is a need to remember the incident of Bhima Koregaon.

There has been a socialist element in Maharashtra, especially since Shivaji's time, that is, Shivaji used to take everyone along. Maharashtra still follows his path.

After the BJP was such a big party, after emerging so much, even the NCP was completely evacuated. Many of his leaders had turned towards him. Many Congress people also took their side. Despite this, the Congress and NCP got more seats than before. This was amazing people, not political parties.

It was clear from the election results that the people of Maharashtra did not like such BJP politics.

Afraid of strong leaders

Recently, during the formation of Maharashtra government, Congress President Sonia Gandhi was completely dependent on the local leader of Maharashtra and NCP chief Sharad Pawar.

When the Congress leaders told them that you were giving more price to Sharad Pawar, it was learned that Sonia Gandhi asked them, tell me, is there any Congress leader of Sharad Pawar's height in Maharashtra?

If we assume that the Congress does not have a leader equal to Sharad Pawar, then the question arises that how did Sharad Pawar become such a big leader?

Actually, he had to leave the Congress for this. Because the Congress did not allow them to progress. That is why he left the Congress not once or twice, when he came out and emerged such a big leader.

From the beginning the Congress did not tolerate such regional leaders, so today they are in such a situation that they have to depend on others.

Similarly, Mamta Banerjee has also come from Congress in West Bengal. Chandrababu Naidu of Telugu Desam was also the leader of the Congress. If they did not progress too, they separated. The same happened with Jagan Mohan Reddy.

The condition of the Congress in every state was bad because they did not allow the state leader to grow.

Today BJP is doing this. Today Narendra Modi's personality has become huge, but only one leader like him is with him - Amit Shah. And in the remaining places they do not tolerate other strong leaders.

In Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis made a mistake thinking that he is a very big leader. But if Devendra Fadnavis were left alone in Maharashtra, the party would not have got 105 seats. So many seats also came due to Narendra Modi.

Similar is the case in Haryana. At the same time, many people did not even know the name of Raghubar Das, who was made the Chief Minister in Jharkhand.

And all the strong leaders like Shivraj Singh Chauhan did not like BJP national leaders.

The BJP is going on the same line on which the Congress has run for so many years and this danger is also being created for the BJP that they too have no leader except Narendra Modi.

Narendra Modi is in electoral mode all the time, which should not happen. Election campaign should be in the hands of state leaders, but it does not happen.
