Political conflict of BJP
BJP’s position in Bihar has weakened slightly after JDU’s withdrawal from NDA. However, the party leaders are constantly looking for a way out of this situation with the help of an expanded organizational structure. However, the party is facing more danger from the action of CBI and ED on RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and his family. If we talk about inside BJP, the spokespersons who are attacking the Lalu family and saying that Tejashwi Yadav will be jailed. They are claiming that the central agencies have received strong evidence. All these statements have been echoed on social media. On the other hand, if we look at the matter inside, even the strategists of BJP do not want that anyone should be punished till 2024 and 2025.
Why does BJP want the Lalu family not to be punished yet?
The whole issue of land for job scam is because of the UPA government. So many years have passed but the decision not coming is no less than a surprise. However, now that the investigation has intensified, the discussion in the Bihar BJP is that no action should be taken against the Lalu family. The reason for this is also very interesting. It is the internal assessment of the BJP that if someone in the Lalu family is punished before the elections, the RJD’s vote bank will increase by up to 4 per cent. This can have a direct impact on the upcoming Lok Sabha and Vidhansabha seats. Seats can be snatched from them. That too because the target of the BJP, which is still lying alone, is the assembly and Lok Sabha seats where the party is lagging behind in the vote count. In such a situation, BJP is worried due to the unknowing fear of increasing the vote of RJD or Grand Alliance by four percent.
BJP wants Tejashwi to become CM!
All the parties within the Grand Alliance, even the RJD MLA is in no hurry to see Tejashwi Yadav become the CM. The Deputy Chief Minister of the state himself also said that let me remain the Deputy CM. Working well with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. The CM has already said his word. But the BJP is worried that Tejashwi Yadav should be made the CM as soon as possible. This is injustice. Tejashwi Yadav is the leader of the largest party. It is a matter of rights. CM Nitish should do justice. There is discussion in political circles that this attitude of BJP has a political purpose.
How do experts see this ‘kindness’ of BJP?
Political analyst and senior journalist Arun Pandey says that behind the BJP repeatedly pressurizing Tejashwi Yadav to become the CM, the party has a hidden agenda. In fact, the way law-breaking cases are increasing in the state, it is becoming an election issue for the BJP. The only aim of the BJP leader is that when Tejashwi becomes the CM, the party will publicize this fact during the Lok Sabha elections with logic that the graph of crime had increased when he was the Deputy CM. Now that he has become the CM, criminal incidents will increase and Jungle Raj Part-2 will arrive.
It is also unfortunate with RJD that crime increases in the state as soon as it comes to power. BJP wants to fit the equation of victory in the Lok Sabha by raising the issue of internal security and loot, murder, kidnapping. The truth is that BJP has no interest in making Tejashwi the CM. Yes, BJP is waiting for an election issue and in any case, the party will feel comfortable in contesting the Lok Sabha elections under the leadership of Tejashwi Yadav.
