Akhilesh’s ‘No’ to Nitish’s ‘Road Map’ of Kurmi Politic

October 31 2022

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is taking the 2024 general election a little too seriously and it is likely that in the 2024 general elections, Nitish’s JDU will contest from 17 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar while 17 seats will be given to RJD and the remaining 6 seats for Congress and Left. So, Sanjay Jha, a very close friend of Nitish, has advised him that ‘JDU should contest more elections on 15 Kurmi dominated seats outside Bihar. JDU is also going to field candidates in Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Odisha and Gujarat. If sources are to be believed, Sanjay Jha reached Lucknow as Nitish’s special envoy and urged SP supremo Akhilesh Yadav to ‘organize meetings for Nitish in Kurmi-dominated districts like Basti, Shravasti, Sitapur, Mirzapur and Bareilly.’ Akhilesh listened to Jha and said, “Give time to think, I will respond.” When Akhilesh’s call did not come for a long time, then Tejashwi called Akhilesh at Nitish’s behest and asked him his opinion about this. He said that “when my party is not entering Bihar, why do you want to come to UP?” Tejashwi sensed what Akhilesh said. Mamta Banerjee also had similar views about this. Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren said after much hesitation that ‘he can give up one of his seats for Nitish as per the agreement.’ Madhy Prdesh’s Rewa is also a Kurmi dominated seat from where Buddsen Patel came for the first time by winning the election in 1996. But UP is slipping out of Nitish’s hands, where after Bihar, there is a 9 percent Kurmi population. Sanjay Jha also hopes that he will convince Akhilesh for this today or tomorrow.
