The state of Bihar is preparing for assembly elections which are due in October this year. It is going to be one of the most interesting election ever in Bihar to watch out for, since the arch rivals Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Janata Dal (United) (JDU) have formed an unanticipated alliance. They are also joined by Indian National Congress (INC) and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). Current Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has been announced as the face of this alliance unanimously. The decision to project him as CM candidate came after Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar met Samajwadi Party Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav at his residence in Delhi. This alliance, as mentioned by Lalu Yadav, has been formed in order to exterminate the saffron brigade in the state.

As a  result of growing popularity of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) nationwide (since they have won assembly elections in Maharashtra, Haryana, Jharkhand and Jammu & Kashmir recently) we can expect an unprecedented cut-throat competition against the giant alliance of JD(U), RJD, Congress and NCP.  However, BJP is yet to announce its CM candidate for the elections. The party is expecting ‘Modi Magic’ in this state as well and will use his towering popularity during election campaign. As per former BJP President and Current Home Minister Rajnath Singh, the core issues of the party will be good governance and development. Former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi, after being expelled from JD(U), has recently formed his own party ‘Hindustani Awam Morcha’ and has announced its alliance with BJP in the state.

The newly appointed Chief Election Commissioner, Nasim Zaidi called Bihar  election the “mother of all elections”. He also said that extensive central forces and a reworked expenditure monitoring system shall be deployed in the state during polls in order to curb money and muscle power, for abuse of money is a big problem in Bihar.

  1. Seriously a close game it seems as per now . Neither party is edging a bit, though days fr lalu bcoz he has to take a back seat. Along wth
    pm modi bjp party president amit shah will be traying hard to grab more seats as it also helps in increasing rajyasabha seats . My eyes on it feeling excited abt this turnaround in bihar .


  2. This election may prove to be a turning point which may change the course of politics in Bihar. Lots of eyes and lots of buzz. May the best political party with the intent to help and develope the state emerge victorious.


  3. BJP is already loosing its popularity in the country because the PM is not taking action against the accused ministers involved in #LalitModiScam…..!! Also everyday, there is a new revelation about the Pankaja Munde scam and the Vyapam Scam!!!! Modi is disappointing us by not taking any action


    1. Juh, lol, what are you talking about. BJP is actually gaining popularity. Congress made a fool during the last parliament session. I’m from South India and now BJP is getting even more popular here. Especially Modi.


  4. Being here on the battle ground, Patna and as far as I know NCP is not the part of the Mahagathbandhan.
    Talking about the real situation, Nitish is still the popular face for CM post among the population and being damn sure this time also he is going to snatch the position with good margin.
