Madhubani Lok Sabha seat: BJP hopes for shawl trick, antithesis depends standing number

MADHUBANI: The BJP is looking to measure a hat-trick for a Madhubani Lok Sabha chair in Mithilanchal segment of Bihar, that goes to polls on May 6, during a fifth phase. The celebration has fielded Ashok Yadav, son of four-time BJP MP Hukmdev Narayan Yadav.

Pitted opposite him, on a Grand Alliance side, is VIP claimant Badri Purbe, a businessman formed out of Darbhanga and son for a former MLA.

Madhubani has a top race of Brahmins, who form around 35% of a race followed by Muslims (19%) and Nishad (10%) voters. Yadavs and a many back classes (MBC) also form a sizeable chunk. Vaishyas form around 6% of a voters.

In 2014, BJP’s Hukmdev Narayan Yadav had won this chair by 20,000 votes defeating RJD’s Abdul Bari Siddiqui. JDU has contested alone in 2014 and a claimant Ghulam Ghous had got 56,000 votes.

“In 2014, a Nishads and Bania electorate were with Modi,” says Mukesh Sahni, president, VIP.

“However, this time, this opinion will come to us as my celebration is contesting a seat. We will take around one lakh votes that went to a BJP final time.” Purbe of VIP is a Bania and Sahni hopes that he will make a hole into a Bania electorate of a BJP.

However, what is discouraging his calculation is former Congress personality Shakeel Ahmad who is contesting as an eccentric from a seat. Ahmad has won this chair twice in a past and was anticipating to get a Congress ticket. But given a chair went to VIP, Ahmad motionless to competition as an independent.

Madhubani has 6 public seats and in 2015, RJD won 3 seats and Congress, BJP and RLSP won one each. The sole Congress MLA from Benipatti, Bhavna Jha is also ancillary Ahmad and this could make a BJP’s float comfortable.

“Ahmad has change in each standing in a segment and Muslims would be divided in their voting preference,” pronounced Mohammad Nisar in Benipatti market. On a other hand, Brahmins and a territory of Yadavs too seem to be subsidy BJP claimant Ashok Yadav.

“Hukmdev Babu is a many renouned personality and has started his politics during a panchayat level,” says Narhari Yadav from Bijuli village, a local place of Hukmdev Narayan Yadav. Giridhar Jha, who runs a dhaba, says, “There is no possibility of voting for anyone solely a BJP. Not usually Brahmins, though Yadavs, Banias and Nishads too are voting for Modi in vast numbers.”

“Purbe is no compare for Ashok Yadav,” says Saroj Kumar Sah, a Bania in Harlakhi market. “Besides, this opinion is for Modi. We would have voted for any BJP candidate.”

Former RJD MP Ali Ashraf Fatimi, who rebelled from a party, is operative tough to better a Alliance candidate.
