Bihar’s politics has taken a new turn in the first phase of the state’s electoral strategy. A new claimant for the CM’s post has emerged with the support of not one political party but multiple ones. No other alliance has involved so many political leaders. So far there were two hotly debated names viz., Nitish Kumar and Tejasvi Yadav but the third name of Upendra Kushwaha has been propped up by the newly formed alliance of Grand Secular Democratic Front.
This coalition comprises a total of 7 parties, perhaps the massive mixture. This certainly has the tint of curiosity in Bihar’s electoral fight.
However, the best aspect of this front is that all the political leaders are sons of the soil except Asaduddin Owaisi who hails from Telangana but has decent political backing in Bihar’s Seemanchal. The newly constituted Front leaders have humbly beseeched the Bihar’s 7.18 crore voters to repose faith once and for only one assembly term of five years. They asserted that there would be development in the state if they are voted to power. Voters may speculate over their assurances as none of them is born with silver spoon in their mouth. They represent the spirit and voice the society.
This becomes clear from the introductory speeches of the two important leaders fledgeling their political strength in the front. One talked of “Do you like coffee or tea in Germany?” while other leader spoke of “Do you like coffee or tea in Japan?” While Germany exists on the west side of the compass on the world map, Japan obviously exists on the east side of the compass. This crucial mistake is enough to show how strictly formal are they.
Speeches on coffee or tea tend to be simple and reliable but the particular references carry much political weight in the vertical, horizontal or perpendicular orientation of emerging polling trends in the state of Bihar, which will most probably pave the electoral way for the AIMIM in Uttar Pradesh and Bengal.
