Who is Anshuman?

March 18 2012

There was a lot of disturbance regarding bringing Anshuman Mishra from Jharkhand. Advani, Sushma and Joshi openly opposed the move but the chief strategist Arun Jaitley maintained his silence about it. On the other hand, Rajnath Singh and Gadkari talked in favour of Anshuman Mishra. Some industrial houses such as Sahara openly opposed Anshuman Mishra’s name, industrialists such as Naresh Goyal, Mukesh Ambani, Kumaramangalam Birla and Ruia brothers were advocating in favour of his name. The maximum opposition to Mishra’s name came from Jharkhand’s Parliamentarian Nishikant Dubey, who is said to be close to Jaitley. The fact of the matter is that Dubey, who has until now managed corporate lobbying for Ruia brothers (Essar Group) until now, didn’t want another Brahmin face from Jharkhand. Also, Dubey isn’t quite taking to Mishra’s new-found friendship with his corporate bosses Shashi and Prashant Ruia. Clearly, even if Gadkari manages to make Anshuman Mishra a candidate supported by the BJP, Dubey will not leave any stone unturned to reap thorns in Mishra’s path because he also has good contacts in Jharkhand Mukti Morcha as well as the BJP in the state.
