What are the NDA faces that can be sent to Rajya Sabha from Bihar?

The name of the NDA has not been announced so far in the only seat of Rajya Sabha in Bihar.

1st October, 2019

Elections are to be held in the next few days for the two Rajya Sabha seats in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. For this, October 4 is the last date for filing nominations till Friday. The Rajya Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh is vacant after the death of former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley Jaitley and the death of noted lawyer and law minister of the Vajpayee government Ram Jethmalani (Bihar).

Ram Jethmalani, who was elected to the Rajya Sabha from Bihar from RJD, was to end in 2022, but he died before that. Therefore, whichever leader goes to Rajya Sabha from this seat, his tenure will be around three years. There is a similar rule in Rajya Sabha.

There has been a ruckus in the political corridor of Bihar for the only seat of Rajya Sabha. Though there is no discussion about the vacant seat in the Rajya Sabha, in view of the flood situation in the Haryana and Punjab Elections Assembly and Bihar, the BJP high command has a complete eye on this seat. The BJP wants that by acquiring this seat, it becomes stronger in the Rajya Sabha.

BJP and JDU have their own claims

However, till now the BJP and JDU have not discussed it in view of the flood situation in the state, but in the next one or two days, it will be agreed that whose seat this seat will go to. There is a discussion on the political corridor of Bihar that it will go to JDU's court. The reason for this is that JDU is a bigger party than BJP in the Bihar Assembly. In such a situation, the question arises as to which of the leaders of JDU on this seat is strong.

The second question is whether this seat will be won by BJP or JDU will assert its right on it? The leaders of both the parties are claiming this seat. Experts are assuming that if this seat falls in the BJP's court, then the BJP can send a man of any organization to the Rajya Sabha. One name that is emerging in this is that of Rajendra Singh, the minister in charge of the organization of Jharkhand. Rajendra Singh belongs to the Rajput caste and has a strong influence on the organization, but Rajendra Singh's side may be weak because there are already many Rajput caste MPs and MLAs in Bihar BJP.

Who will be the candidate in the event of BJP getting a seat

Another name from Bihar BJP is Syed Shahnawaz Hussain, the party's national spokesperson and a minister in the Vajpayee government. Shahnawaz Hussain lost the 2014 Lok Sabha election from Bhagalpur seat with a slight margin from the RJD candidate. In the last Lok Sabha elections, this seat had gone to JDU's part, so his candidature came to a halt. In such a situation, Shahnawaz Hussain's name is also being taken in the information that is being received from party sources. However, it is also being said that if the BJP gets this seat, a startling name can also come up.

At the same time, the most discussed in the JDU is the name of the party's Chief General Secretary KC Tyagi. In the last Lok Sabha elections, there was a discussion that KC Tyagi would be made the NDA candidate from a seat in western UP, but due to lack of agreement with BJP, KC Tyagi could not contest. In such a situation, JDU is more likely to send KC Tyagi to Rajya Sabha.

Who are the contenders from JDU

However, those who understand Bihar's politics closely say, "Hardly will Nitish Kumar send Casey Tyagi to Rajya Sabha?" The reasoning behind this is that Nitish Kumar needs a leader who can put the Muslim vote bank in his office in the upcoming assembly elections.

In such a situation, people are assuming that if JDU has to contest elections in Bihar alone, then Nitish Kumar may decide to send someone from the minority community to Rajya Sabha. If the JDU separates from the BJP, then the majority-minority community living with the RJD can again turn to the JDU. After Ali Anwar's departure from the party, there is no such big Muslim face in the Rajya Sabha or in the media who strongly favors the party.

In this context, Syed Mahmood Ashraf, who was the JDU candidate in the last Lok Sabha election from Kishanganj, can be sent to Rajya Sabha. Of the 17 seats in which JDU contested the Lok Sabha elections in Bihar, only Kishanganj seats had to be defeated. But not a single Muslim is among the 16 Lok Sabha MPs of the party. The term of the party's Muslim MP in the Rajya Sabha, Kahakshan Parveen, is going to end in April next year. Along with this, the names of former IFS officer and party leader Pawan Verma and former Chief Secretary of Bihar government Anjani Kumar Singh are also going on behalf of JDU. Anjani Kumar Singh is currently working as an advisor to Nitish Kumar.
