Bihar Election 2020: NDA’s UNWAVERING VICTORY GUARANTEED

Bihar Election 2020 Winner BJP JDU

From lining behind the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD)-led grand alliance, the Bharatiya Janata Party-Janata Dal (United) led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is now seen to have increased its pace and is found hovering beyond the halfway mark in Bihar Assembly election 2020.

The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), leader Chirag Paswan’s fervent claims that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will be rejected by the people of Bihar and will be driven out of the race for the Chief Ministerial seat seems to be crashing down as NDA is leading with highest numbers, looks like BJP will single-handedly win today’s show.

Mr Paswan had chosen to contest the Bihar election alone, opting out of the NDA, will this be in favour of him or not can only be known once the results come out.

As the counting began for 243 Assembly seats in Bihar on Tuesday, JD(U) leader KC Tyagi said that “Brand Nitish” is still alive. “In the last one year, nothing has harmed brand Nitish or added to brand RJD,” reported new agencies.

Latest trends mark that the BJP won 55 of the 110 seats it contested and its ally the JD(U) won in 33 of the 115 seats it fought.

Back in 2015, BJP had won 53 seats and JD(U) 71. Early trends of the election show a clear win-win situation for BJP.

The doubt that has gripped the minds and hearts of people is the fact that the exit-polls which came out on Saturday gave out a completely different perspective of the results. It predicted a sharp-edged win of RJD-led Mahagathbandhan.

NDA’s ROUTE TO VICTORY

The air of Bihar has hues of saffron-colour on it. During the election campaigns, BJP was seen to have received an underwhelming response throughout public meetings, not as much as it was expected to be. It majorly cashed on matters like ‘Ram Mandir, the 19 lakh job opportunities to be provided by them and the achievements of BJP at the Central were highlighted.

It was also seen that BJP’s strong senior party leaders came forward and addressed the crowd throughout the three phases with full enthusiasm. The BJP-led JD(U) NDA has a track record of Mr Kumar 15 years of hard work too. The voters seemed to be mesmerized by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speeches and were impressed by Mr Kumar’s attention towards women education.

Making Mr Kumar the face of 2020 Bihar election has gathered many benefits if seen economically, it was his government which was first credited with creating a serious attempt at lifting the state from dire poverty.

Over the past few years, while the state GDP has grown faster in comparison to Bihar’s rate of development previously. Bihar’s economic growth has been impressive under Mr Kumar’s tenure. The average annual growth of Bihar’s economic output was the highest among selected states. Its performance in agriculture was second only to Madhya Pradesh.

According to the economist Swaminathan Aiyar, “the economic turnaround of Bihar has improved law and order situation under Mr Kumar. A look at the National Crime Records Bureau data shows significant reduction in crimes such as dacoity and robbery under Kumar’s tenure.”

One of the most popular schemes Mr Kumar started was giving bicycles to school-going girls. This and several such efforts seem to have paid dividends in the education sector as Bihar recorded the biggest improvement in retention rates among this group of states.
Retention rates are defined as a percentage of students who manage to reach grade V after having enrolled in grade I.

Riding on the popularity of PM Modi-led two successive Lok Sabha majorities, the party could mull charting an independent course or a much trimmed NDA. The party has been able to expand its social base due to PM Modi’s popularity as well as a slew of social welfare programmes.

The culmination of strong BJP ideas and hard work of JD(U) makes it a deep-rooted victorious coalition. Though BJP is holding onto Mr Kumar on the face value but delving into the speeches and the deliberate ignorance of Mr Paswan comments is astonishing as well.

MAHAGATBANDHAN’S UNEXPECTED DOWNFALL

RJD-led Mahagathbandhan was expected to be a breakthrough as it had solemn youth representation by its 31-year-old chief, Tejaswi Yadav, a cricketer turned politician and the youngest son of Lalu Prasad Yadav. There has been a controversy where it was said that the Yadav sons had a tussle on who would take the political legacy of their family.

RJD started with high claims of promises and tried to highlight the negatives of the ruling government. His aura was well-received as seen in the public meetings during the election campaign. The flip side of the coin had the Yadav-Muslim vote bank that RJD majorly relied on.

It had trusted the Upper Castes to be in their favour along with the claims of 10 lakh job opportunities if came in power. RJD’s ally Congress was seen very rarely during the election campaign or at least not as much as PM Modi.

The young leader, Mr Yadav, remained the sole-star during the rallies. The voters seemed to have not overcome RJD’s past, and when asked, they said ‘Jungle Raj’ is not the future of Bihar. The downfall of RJD in this election could be because of biased perspective towards Mr Yadav concerning his father Lalu Prasad Yadav, so much so that even the places with Muslim majority is seen to have not opted for RJD.

Lack of representation by their allies and no efforts shown towards erasing the past prejudice in the minds of people could be counted as the primary defining factor of their defeat in the 2020 Bihar Elections.

LJP’S CONTRIBUTION IN ELECTIONS

The actor turned politician and leader of LJP, Chirag Paswan, son of late Ram Vilas Paswan who was a loyal ally of BJP in the Centre, contested the Bihar election, like a lone wolf and broke off the alliance with NDA as happened in the past. This did result in unique twist and turns in the Bihar elections during the campaign and later too.

It was seen that Mr Paswan’s sole motive was to drive out Mr Kumar and continue to be loyal towards BJP. His party successfully divided votes in many constituencies while securing 3 seats as of now.

As called by one of the BJP leader’s as ‘vote katwa’ he seemed to have managed the same. Mr Paswan’s campaign had no strong ideals set or didn’t call for development and infrastructure; it lacked a systematic framework for the Bihar Elections 2020.

There is a popular saying in Bihar that people in the state do not cast their vote, but vote their caste, this trend has seen to be non-existent as of now. Rather it is on the lines of communalism in many parts of Bihar, and in others the prejudiced thought process has engulfed the minds of the voters.

In every possible way, even if NDA loses at some point, BJP has its victory declared. The workers of BJP and JDU seen to have started to celebrate their victory in front of the Party offices long before the results are announced.

A girl with aspirations and desires skyrocketing yet likes to keep it lowkey—also a political enthusiast with the zest of bringing a change. I always like to be indulged in good conversations with a hot cup of coffee. I am an avid reader with a habit of binge-watching movies and shows.

16 अक्टूबर को अरविंद कुमार साह पर आतंकियों द्वारा गोली चलाई गई, उन्हें गंभीर स्थिति में श्रीनगर के SMHS अस्पताल ले जाया गया जहाँ डॉक्टरों ने उन्हें मृत घोषित कर दिया। अरविंद कुमार बिहार के बांका जिले में रहनेवाले थे और श्रीनगर में गोलगप्पे बेचते थे। 16 अक्टूबर की ही शाम को आतंकियों ने पुलवामा में सगीर अहमद नाम के व्यक्ति की गोली मारकर हत्या कर दी। सगीर अहमद उत्तरप्रदेश का रहनेवाला था एवं पेशे से वह एक कार्पेंटर था। 17 अक्टूबर, रविवार को आतंकियों ने दक्षिण कश्मीर के कुलगाम में के तीन मजदूरों को गोली मार दी, जिससे दो मजदूरों की मृत्यु हो गई और एक मजदूर बुरी तरह से घायल हो गया।

कश्मीर के अलग अलग हिस्सों में अनेकों प्रवासी बसे हुए हैं। अधिकतर लोग रोजगार की तलाश में बिहार से कश्मीर आए हुए हैं। लोगों का कहना है कि वे अगले महीने तक अपने घर बिहार जाना चाहते थे मगर दहशतगर्दों के कारण उन्हें काम छोड़कर बीच में ही जाना पढ़ रहा है। लोग डरे हुए हैं कि यदि स्थिति जल्द से जल्द सामान्य नहीं हुई तो उनका रोजगार और बच्चों की पढ़ाई छुट जाएगी।

27 वर्षों से कश्मीर में रह रहे 45 वर्षीय पंकज पासवान का कहना है कि उन्होंने इतने वर्षों में कश्मीर की इससे भी बदतर हालत देखी है। उनका कहना है कि एक के बाद एक हो रही हत्याओं से कश्मीर में दहशत का माहौल बना हुआ है और वे भी इस समय बिहार लौट जाना चाहते हैं। आतंकियों द्वारा निशाना बनाए गए नागरिकों का कहना है कि अनुच्छेद-370 के हटने से और कश्मीर के विकास से आतंकी बौखलाए हुए हैं। इसी वजह से वो लोगों पर हमला कर रहे हैं। नागरिकों का कहना है कि रविवार को हुए आतंकी हमले से पहले उन्हें उम्मीद थी कि हालात सुधर जाएंगे मगर लगातार हो रही हत्याओं से उन्हें भी जान का खतरा बना हुआ है।

पीडीपी अध्यक्षा महबूबा मुफ्ती का कहना है कि, यह घटना निंदनीय है। भोले भाले लोगों को बेवजह मरना और उनका रोज़गार छीनना बेहद दुःख की बात है।

बीजेपी के प्रवक्ता अल्ताफ ठाकुर ने कहा कि यह शत प्रतिशत नरसंहार है, गैर-कश्मीरियों की यह भीषण हत्या बिल्कुल अमानवीय है और यह आतंकियों की बौखलाहट को दर्शाता है।

सीपीआई के नेता मोहम्मद युसूफ तारिगामी का कहना है कि भोले भाले मजदूरों की हत्या एक जघन्य अपराध है, सिर्फ निंदा करना काफी नहीं है, ऐसे समय में सभी को एकजुट होकर इस तरह के अपराध के खिलाफ आवाज उठानी चाहिए और आतंकियों को कड़ी सजा देनी चाहिए।

जम्मू कश्मीर की लेफ्टनेंट गवर्न मनोज सिन्हा ने कहा है की निर्दोषों के खून का बदला इन आतंकियों से लिया जायेगा, कश्मीर की शांति को भंग करने कि कोशिश की जा रही है, लोगों को आगे बढ़ने से रोका जा रहा है, कश्मीर के विकास को रोकने की साजिश हो रही है मगर हम ऐसा नहीं होने देंगे। मनोज सिन्हा ने अपने रेडियो कार्यक्रम ‘आवाम की आवाज’ में कहा “आतंकी हमले में मारे गए के लिए मैं शोक व्यक्त करता हूं, हम सभी लोग आपके साथ हैं और आतंकियों से हार एक हत्या का पूरा बदला लिया जायेगा यह मेरा वादा है”।

Ram Mandir Opening 2023 | News Aur Chai

The Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is expected to allow visitors by December 2023, with the completion of construction only in 2025.

Sources in the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra have revealed that the colossal project of building the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, will be opening for devotees towards the end of 2023. In contrast, the project’s entire construction completion is expected towards the end of 2025. The sanctum sanctorum (Garbha Griha), along with the mandir’s first floor, will be ready by December 2023. Devotees will be allowed to visit the long-awaited mandir soon after the construction is completed.

An ANI report said, “The grand Ram Mandir being constructed in Ayodhya will be opened for devotees from December 2023. Sources told ANI that Garbhagriha, all five mandaps and the first floor will be ready by December 2023 and the mandir will be opened for devotees”.

The sanctum sanctorum will be as high as 161 feet and built using Rajasthani marble and stones. Engineers and architects are taking all measures to ensure the longevity of this enormous project. The second stage of construction is expected to begin in December this year. Currently, the structure is at a standstill as a result of monsoons. Another reason for the delay is the coronavirus pandemic that depleted the force with which the mandir’s construction was expected to go on.

The announcement of the mandir being opened to visitors in 2023 has brought up questions about the political agenda. It is believed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) aims to use the mandir to catapult themselves into a position of advantage during the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Opening the mandir to devotees in December 2023 will give the BJP an easy 6-month gap to the general elections in 2024.

The opening of the long-awaited Ram Mandir in Ayodhya could be the factor that diverts the public, at least the Hindu’s in favour of BJP. Thus, securing them a vote bank based on religious sentiments upheld by the party in their previous tenure as the ruling party.

The Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir will be 360 feet long, 235 feet wide, and 20 feet high mandir will be completely ready by the end of 2025. The project will include amenities and structures like museums, archives, research centre, Sant Niwas, gau and Yagya shala, Etc. The main attraction is the Ram Mandir.
