U.P., Bihar and Bhoomihar

May 07 2010

The political atmosphere in the saffron party has warmed up over the elections in Bihar. And ever since C.P. Thakur, who in an unprecedented manner represents the Bhoomihar caste, has become the new party State president, it is as if a tremor has jolted the internal party politics. The Sushil Modi group, which had been dominating the Bihar politics, has been taken aback. The tussle between the Mangal Pandey group and the Ashwini Chaubey group has thrown open new opportunities for the Bhoomihar lobby. Now Gadkari wants that Ananth Kumar, who hails from Karnataka, should be handed over the charge of Bihar. But on Ananth Kumar’s name there is a turmoil in Bihar BJP. So the Gadkari loyalists are at present sitting silently and watching the waves of Bihar politics. Now since Dr. Thakur has become the president of Bihar BJP, so the candidature of Surya Prakash Singh for the post of president of U.P. BJP has for the time hold been put on hold. Since Shahi is also a Bhoomihar, his rival camp is forwarding the argument that how can Bhoomihars be given the reins of party politics in two adjoining Hindi speaking States. But the confident Shahi camp is of the view that when there can be seven Brahmins in the BJP Parliamentary Party, and the presidents of half-a-dozen State units can also be from the party, then why such a storm over the claim of two Bhoomihars to presidential posts.
