Bageshwar Baba Bihar Visit: Politics has heated up regarding Baba Bageshwar’s visit to Bihar. On one hand BJP is openly batting in support of Baba and on the other hand Grand Alliance has taken up the front of Boycott of Baba. Is the BJP trying to break the caste arithmetic of the Grand Alliance under the umbrella of Hindutva for 2024 through Baba? Baba Bageshwar has been warmly welcomed in Bihar. While leaving the hotel, thousands of people were seen desperate in the hot afternoon to have a glimpse of Baba.
The pandal is decorated in Naubatpur, which is about 20-25 kilometers away from Patna city. A crowd of lakhs is reaching there to listen to Baba. Here a five-day story of Sarkar Pandit Dhirendra Krishna Shastri of Bageshwar Dham is taking place. Which will end on 17 May. Although this program of Baba is religious, but the way in which there is a tinge of politics, since then questions are being asked as to why Baba has come to Bihar. Strong statements have also been made on this matter by the leaders of both the parties.
What did Nitish Kumar say?
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that after the freedom struggle, the constitution was made with everyone’s consent. Everyone should accept the nomenclature done by the Father of the Nation. Was the person who (Dhirendra Shastri, head of Bageshwar Dham) speaking was born at that time? We all believe in Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation. We are working on the basis of that. We are surprised who speaks like this. What is the need to say like this, Hindu-Muslim are all here, everyone has the right to worship in their own way. Everyone has the right to follow any religion. The constitution was made with everyone’s consent.
“What is Baba, is he some Baba?”
Former CM of Bihar and National President of RJD Lalu Prasad said that BJP has been wiped out in Karnataka elections. What is Baba, he is some Baba. On the other hand, Bihar government minister Tej Pratap Yadav said that Baba is doing the work of abusing Biharis. There is Krishna Rajya in Bihar, there is the rule of Grand Alliance. Lord Krishna was complete with 16 arts and Ram ji was complete with 14 arts only. All this politics is being done to break the country. People have given the result in Karnataka.
Ashwini Choubey warned
BJP leader and Union Minister Ashwini Choubey defended Baba and said that he will be present at the venue of Baba Bageshwar’s program in Patna from May 13 to 17. The education minister of the state has nothing to do with education. He has insulted Ramcharitmanas. Baba Bageshwar, who is the custodian of Sanatan Dharma, has dedicated his life for the betterment of the country. If you dare to touch them, you will be harmed.
The leaders of the ruling JDU and RJD are besieging Baba regarding this program. While BJP is openly batting in favor of Baba. BJP leaders have gathered on Baba’s stage from the very first day. From the Union Minister to the local MP and from the state president of the party to the leader of the Legislature Party, they are seen gracing Baba’s platform.
Politics of Bihar divided into two parts
Singer and BJP MP Manoj Tiwari was seen singing songs from the stage. In a way, BJP leaders have hijacked this program of Baba. Big leaders of BJP are meeting Baba. When the program of Baba’s visit to Bihar was fixed, the leaders of RJD and JDU started targeting him. Big leaders of BJP hit back at the ruling coalition by giving statements in favor of Baba. Since then, the politics of Bihar has been divided into two parts regarding Baba.
Now there will be a question in your mind that when Baba is a religious person, then why the politics of Bihar is hot about him. In fact, this visit of Baba has given BJP an opportunity to play on the front foot in Bihar. Along with this, a message has been sent to the voters of Bihar that the party has Baba’s support and this will help the BJP in uniting the Hindu voters. The politics of Bihar has been divided along caste lines for years. Each caste has its own leader. Every alliance wants the support and support of ethnic leaders for victory in elections. At present, in the caste politics of Bihar, the Grand Alliance is heavy on the BJP and until the BJP does not weaken the Grand Alliance in this, the battle of 24 is difficult.
It is important to understand the math of votes
Whenever Nitish remained together in the politics of Bihar, BJP did not face any problem, but in the 2015 assembly elections, Nitish joined Lalu. The same scene is visible in 2024. In such a situation, it becomes necessary to understand the mathematics of votes. Then NDA got 34% votes, in which BJP had 24 and allies had 10% votes. While the Grand Alliance got 42% votes. In this, RJD had 18, JDU 17 and Congress had 7 percent votes.
In the current situation, the Grand Alliance is strong in Bihar. Apart from these three, the Left is also a part of the Grand Alliance at this time. As far as NDA is concerned, then Chirag Paswan’s party is not with BJP. Upendra Kushwaha is also trying to weigh his strength and Manjhi is also unable to take a decision.
Who all with BJP?
Pashupati Paras is definitely with BJP, but his influence is not the same as that of his nephew Chirag Paswan. Yes, BJP made Samrat Chaudhary of Kushwaha caste as its president in order to rectify caste arithmetic, and inducted RCP Singh of Kurmi caste into the party. The party is also soft on Manjhi and Mukesh Sahni, but even after all this, the party’s position is not strong on caste calculations. In such a situation, you can believe that Bageshwar Maharaj has come as a game changer for BJP in Bihar 300 days before the elections.
Can voters be united in the name of Hindutva?
The way Baba talks about Hindu nation in his discourses, he raises the flag of Hindutva. In such a situation, if Baba unites the voters in favor of BJP through these slogans, then the caste bond can be broken and voters can be united in the name of Hindutva.
Perhaps the idea of BJP leaders is also the same. That’s why BJP leaders are bowing their heads by going to Baba’s stage and seeing their political future in the crowd of Baba’s devotees, but BJP’s opponents are being stubborn in this form of Baba. Due to this visit of Baba, the atmosphere of BJP is getting stronger in Patna and surrounding areas and now another program of Baba has been scheduled in Gaya in the month of September.
