Saffronisation of Paswan, Kushwaha

August 02 2017

Ever since the recent marriage of BJP and Nitish Kumar in Bihar, the saffron juggernaut has started putting pressure on its one-time allies Ram Vilas Paswan and Upendra Kushwaha to merge their parties with BJP. The BJP is worried that even now it has just 22 of the 40 Lok Sabha seats from Bihar. If it forges an alliance with Nitish’s JDU, then its seat count will come further down. Now, it is extremely difficult for regional parties like Paswan or Kushwaha’s to vacate their party seats. So the best option is to merge them with the BJP and the party could go to lunch with those seats. It is learnt that sooner than later the two leaders will walk into the saffron fold.
