The LJP has MPs in the Lok Sabha, including Chirag Paswan, five of whom have now started opposing them. It is understood that the protesting MPs are led by Chirag Paswan’s uncle and Ram Bilas Paswan’s brother Pashupatinath Paras.
New Delhi: Today we will tell you about the break up of the late Ram Bilas Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party, where Ram Bilas Paswan’s brother Pashupatinath Pars formed a party of all party MPs and party MPs in the Lok Sabha and isolated Paswan’s son Chirag Paswan. Removed from his leadership position. For political parties based on the same family, this political phenomenon is like a case study. So now we will tell you about this.
In 2000, Ram Bilas Paswan split from the JDU to form the Lok Janshakti Party, but his family roots were not in politics. He was elected Superintendent of Police of Bihar in 1919, but did not join the police force even after getting such a big job. He entered politics the same year and became a MLA for the first time. .
Chirag Paswan was left alone at the party
Before and after the formation of the LJP, Ram Bilash Paswan paved the way for politics for his two brothers, his son and his son Chirag Paswan. Ram Bilas Paswan and his family were the main branch of the LJP tree until a year ago, but just 247 days after his death, the family now seems to have broken up and Chirag Paswan is left alone in the party.
The LJP has MPs in the Lok Sabha, including Chirag Paswan, five of whom have now started opposing them. It is understood that the protesting MPs are led by Chirag Paswan’s uncle and Ram Bilas Paswan’s brother Pashupatinath Paras. He met Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and demanded that he be declared the leader of the party MPs at the meeting, which was accepted by the Speaker and a notification was also issued.
In other words, the controversy was that LJP MP leader Chirag Paswan should replace his uncle Pashupati Paras in the Lok Sabha. When Chirag Paswan reached Pashupati Pars’ house in Delhi, the gate of his house was not opened. Chirag Paswan’s car was parked outside Pashupatinath Pars’ house for about 15 minutes, but the door did not open for him.
However, when controversy and waiting increased, Chirag Paswan’s car was allowed inside the house. After a while Chirag Paswan left. His statement did not come after that, but his uncle Pashupatinath Paras must have made it clear that by doing so he was not breaking up the party, working on the connection.
BJP’s connection to the split in the party
Now this split in the LJP is being linked to the BJP, so now we will tell you whether the BJP did all this or all this because of the BJP. You can understand this in two points-
The first issue is the news of expansion in the Union Cabinet. News has been circulating for the past few days that there may be a change in the Union Cabinet and Chirag Paswan could become a minister. There are also reports of BJP support in Delhi. You will recall that when assembly elections were held in Bihar last year, Chirag Paswan distanced himself from the BJP-JDU alliance. However, he confined the protest to Nitish Kumar, saying he was not against the BJP. At the time, his decision sent the same message that the BJP was supporting him. Chirag Paswan then won only one seat in the Bihar Assembly elections, but he lost to the JDU in many seats.
That is, Chirag Paswan rebuked the JDU and the BJP became a bigger party than the JDU. Although the BJP and the JDU formed the government together, which is still going on. However, there are reports that the main reason for the split in the LJP is the opposition and Nitish Kumar does not want Chirag to become a minister in the central government. Perhaps that is why Pashupatinath Pars is getting the support of the JDU and he is also talking about the support of the BJP, but overall Chirag Paswan is alone. So the first reason for this political development seems to be to prevent Chirag Paswan from joining the central government.
Chirag Paswan vs. Nitish Kumar
The second issue is the political battle between Chirag Paswan vs. Nitish Kumar in Bihar and you can understand this quarrel that the lone MLA of LJP who won the Bihar elections last year was now separated in support of JDU and LJP. . By doing so, the JDU has tried to send the message that Chirag Paswan will not be able to prepare his own ground by contesting the elections and doing politics against Nitish Kumar, and the big thing is that Chirag Paswan will be weakened by family quarrels.
But there is also a question whether the BJP is with the JDU in this?
So there are two things related to this. For the BJP, the politics of Bihar and the politics of Delhi are completely different. Chirag Paswan may not get support in Bihar, but he has BJP support in Delhi.
But there is another side to the news and that is that the cornerstone of Bihar politics will shift from the LJP to the Congress. There are 19 Congress MLAs in Bihar and now former Bihar Congress president Ashok Chowdhury Chowdhury is in touch with Nitish Kumar.
Such a picture can be seen in the Congress as well
It is also being said that it is his responsibility to dissolve the Congress in Bihar. For one thing, the way MPs in the LJP have opposed Chirag Paswan, the same picture can be seen in the Congress.
Now this political phenomenon is like a case study for those parties whose politics is based on a single party like the Congress. The Congress needs to realize today that just as all LJP MPs may refuse to accept Chirag Paswan as their leader, so too will angry leaders in the Congress tomorrow be encouraged to do so. News of the dissatisfaction of many leaders in Congress is regularly received, but the party wants to resolve all issues in the temptation of familism.
And we have also said many times that if the Congress does not show its hand to political astrologers outside the family, it will happen to the party as well, which is happening to the LJP now.
