Lalu Yadav’s daughter Rohini Acharya to contest from Saran Lok Sabha seat as RJD candidate

RJD president Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter RohiniAcharyais scheduled to run in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from the Saran Lok Sabha constituency, according to reports. Using social media, party leaders have also made hints about this development. For a very long time, candidates from the Saran seat have been Lalu family members.

Three of Lalu’s children are currently participating in politics on a serious level. These include Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav, his two sons who have both held ministerial positions in the past, and his elder daughter Misa Bharti.

It is important to note that Rohini was the one who generously gave her father one of her kidneys when he had kidney transplant surgery in a Singaporean hospital back in December of 2022.

Sources claim that RJD MLC Sunil Kumar Singh suggested Rohini’s name for the Saran seat during the party’s Sunday (March 17) meeting. All of the participants agreed with the suggestion.

Singh underscored at the discussion the party workers’ strong emotional attachment to the Saran seat and the Lalu family. As such, it was considered improper to take into account the name of any other contender. Further, Singh pointed out that if another local candidate, like former minister Jitendra Rai, were to be chosen, the party might not get support from other local RJD leaders in Saran. As a result, Rohini was thought to be the better choice.

Bihar’s Saran constituency, where Jay Prakash Narayan was born, is very important politically. It is thought to be among the state’s most popular legislative seats. Since starting his political career here in 1977, Lalu Yadav has been elected as the Member of Parliament four times from this constituency. Rabri Devi, his wife, has run for office from this seat as well.

In 2009, Lalu Yadav defeated Saran in the elections. However, he was barred from running for office after being found guilty of the fodder scam. As a result, Rabri Devi contested for this seat in 2014. All of RJD’s attempts against the Modi wave, however, were in vain as Rajiv Pratap Rudy emerged victorious and rejoined parliament.

BJP to contest all 13 Punjab Lok Sabha seats for first time since 1996, says state BJP chief Sunil Jakhar

Jakhar said that the Lok Sabha election was the most appropriate time for the BJP to contest independently, as the state is looking for an option

Punjab BJP state President Sunil Jakhar recently said that his party will contest all 13 Lok Sabha sears in the state independently. The BJP has not allied with the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) since 1996.

Sunil Jakhar in an interview with a news publication, said that this decision signifies a new chapter in the party’s strategy in Punjab. The BJP had allied with the SAD in Punjab for over two decades, and is considered to be a major coalition in the state’s political landscape.

The BJP state chief noted that the decision to contest independently was taken on the account of the feedback from the public and party members, reflecting a growing sentiment within the BJP to establish a stronger, independent presence in Punjab.

Jakhar continued that the Lok Sabha election was the most appropriate time for the BJP to contest independently, as the state is looking for an option. He asserted that Punjab tried out-of-the-box experiment in form of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), but are dissappointed with them.

He further highlighted the BJP’s work under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, particularly in securing minimum support prices for farmers, as key accomplishments that the party will present to the electorate. This development follows as the BJP aims to consolidate its position and expand its influence in Punjab.

Notably, the SAD was one of the oldest allies of the BJP. Nonetheless, the SAD severed ties with the NDA in September 2020 over the now repealed farm laws that saw widespread protests in northern India.

Speaking about coalition with SAD, the BJP state chief said that the alliance was not political but a social one. He added that the party is facing a battle of survival, and that its leader Sukhbir Singh Badal has sins to wash of, including the drug problem and sacrilege cases.

Election in Punjab’s 13 Lok Sabha seats is scheduled for June 1, 2024. This development is expected to significantly alter the dynamics of the electoral battle in Punjab, traditionally dominated by the SAD-BJP coalition and the Congress party.
