Patna. Silence also says a lot in politics. After the initial spurt in the preparations for the assembly elections in Bihar, there has been a sudden silence in two big parties of the ruling party. For two-three weeks, BJP’s activities have almost stopped. The movement of central leaders has stopped. JDU programs have also been braked. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is very active as a government, but at the level of organization, JDU seems to be sluggish. At such a time, the Bihar in-charge of Congress, Shakti Singh Gohil coming to Patna and meeting with the leaders of the Grand Alliance is telling that the opposition’s discomfort has increased. Two days ago, Rahul Gandhi also filled the energy of the leaders of Bihar Congress by holding a virtual meeting and also directed to talk to allies for the seat sharing. As Rahul’s departure, Gohil’s arrival has raised hopes of other constituents of the Grand Alliance.
Important decisions will be made after August 15
Sources claim that the settlement of the important issues of the allies in the Grand Alliance and the allocation of seats will be decided after August 15 at any cost. Gohil can sit with other constituents after the Congress has strengthened the mutual front. The term of the Bihar Legislative Assembly will end after 29 November. The last session of the current assembly has also ended, but electoral winds have not picked up pace yet. The whole political atmosphere is under the grip of Corona.
The BJP, which is languishing on the activism front, first started electoral activities in Bihar on June 7 through Amit Shah’s virtual mass democracy. After that the BJP also launched a campaign to get in direct contact with its workers and general voters, but in the meantime many of its leaders got infected with Corona. BJP’s JDU also broke the silence. About a month later, from the first week of July, he also started virtual meetings at his level. The BJP-JDU’s election campaign increased the opposition’s uneasiness. Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav, who has been out of Bihar for nearly two months since the first lockdown was implemented in the country, also started infusing RJD workers.
RJD has continued the campaign
Despite the silence of other parties regarding election preparations, the RJD never let its preparations fall. Though Tejashwi is still adamant on his old demand that the Election Commission should refrain from holding elections amid Corona’s growing transition, but he never allowed the RJD’s election preparations to come to an end. Since mid-May, Tejashwi is in full electoral mode, but in February, he started the Unemployment Hatao Yatra. After that, visiting the villages of martyred soldiers on the border of China, sometimes they have been traveling to the affected areas to know the condition of the flood victims.
