The slang term “Vote Katwa” has been gaining in much attention in hitting up Bihar assembly elections these days.
The prominent names which are being associated with this Hindi word are AIMIM party’s Asaduddin Owaisi, Jan Adhikar Party’s Pappu Yadav and Lok Janshakti Party’s Chirag Paswan who are all trying their respective political fate in the state’s polls.
All the three political leaders are unhappy with this particular naming but they look satisfied with their crusading popularity among the common people and that’s why they are meditation more on electioneering Nathan than their impish links with the extreme wording.
Some critics point out if they are not inflicting damage on their adversaries in the electoral arena, this (dis)honour would not have stuck upon them.
In democratic set up every political party has the right to contest and test its capacity on the ground. So, why do immediate rivals criticise the leaders causing direct challenge by using such scathing terminology? Lalu Yadav has very politely suggested Nitish Kumar think of rest now.
Ingredients of Vote Katwa has already been existing in the electoral system in the form of bringing too many candidates in a constituency. But the big fish offends more in the exacting straight wound to the stronger opponents.
If we spare time to dissect the term, it comes into our direct view that vote is completely an English diction while Katwa is derived from the Hindi language. It is someway as complex as ChauryaKaushal, recently devised by Kumar Vishwas. However, going on the very word Katwa, we get to know that Katwa is a city and a municipality in Purba Bardhaman district of the Indian state of West Bengal.
It is the headquarters of the Katwa subdivision. Further, it is also a Lok Sabha constituency in that eastern India province. Afterwards, it was abolished following the delimitation of the parliamentary constituencies in the year of 2008.
