Lok Sabha Election 2024 : Janbal.. Buddhibal.. Dhanbal.. Eh only Baahubal! | leader

In the past, manpower and intelligence were the foundation of politics, with the addition of these two, money power also became necessary in politics. Nowadays, these three forces are seen to be winning in most places in politics. But the political math of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar is a bit different. For the last fifty years, the politics of these two states have been dominated by Baahubali.

Caste equation of UP!

Caste equations have been of great importance in the politics of Uttar Pradesh since long ago. The politics of Uttar Pradesh revolves around five major caste groups namely Brahmins, Thakurs, Muslims, Dalits and OBCs. Generally speaking, since the 1970s, the edge of caste politics in Uttar Pradesh seems to have become sharper, and as part of this caste politics, the Bahubalis have come to dominate the politics of Uttar Pradesh. As a part of that, every political party here started having an army of Baahubalis in their ranks.

First Bahubali!

Harishankar Tiwari is the first Baahubali who entered the politics of Uttar Pradesh! Harishankar Tiwari emerged from the dominance of Brahmins versus Thakurs, while another Baahubali, Virendra Pratap, entered the fray to replace him, and over time Baahubalis began to dominate the politics of Uttar Pradesh. Be it Kalyan Singh, Rajnath Singh, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav or the current Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, one can see Bahubali's dominance in the cabinet or assembly of each of them. There was a time when Harishankar Tiwari's ministerial position would remain intact no matter who the government was in Uttar Pradesh. With a slight difference, the situation is the same even today, that is, one or the other Baahubali seems to be sitting on the cabinet.

One above the other!

Mukhtar Ansari, Dhananjay Singh, Atiq Ahmed, Ashraf Ahmed, Phulandevi, Raju Pal, Raghuraj Pratap Singh aka Rajabhaiyya, Omprakash Paswan, Brijbhushan Sharan Singh have become more than one Baahubali in the politics of Uttar Pradesh and are still there today. Many achievements such as murder, attempted murder, extortion, kidnapping, rape were recorded in the Uttar Pradesh police register in the name of Baahubali; But because of this, the politics of these Baahubali did not get in the way. The politics of Uttar Pradesh these days is run on the behest of these Baahubalis and there is no possibility of change.

Bihari tribe of Baahubali!

Bihar was once the birthplace of veteran socialist leader Jayaprakash Narayan. The winds of change of power in the country were first blown from this land. Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar, who were trained in the socialist ideology of Jayaprakash Narayan, are the dominant parties in Bihar politics these days. However, along with Jaiprakash, Bihar's politics has deteriorated to such an extent that one wonders whether Bihar has forgotten his ideology as well.

The political equation here!

Bihar politics has a long tradition of Bhumihar vs. Rajput and Zamindar vs. Dalit struggles. In the early days, it was this conflict that gave birth to the Naxalist movement in Bihar, a space now occupied by the Bahubali. Anand Mohan, Munna Shukla, Pappu Yadav, Muhammad Shahabuddin, Chandan Singh Lion, Laddusing Lion, Shankar Singh, Tolasingh, Butansingh are some of the names of political bahubali in Bihar. Like the Baahubalis of Uttar Pradesh, his exploits are well-known; But it seems that these Baahubalis are being given shelter as a political necessity of all the political parties and their leaders.

Baahubali-based politics in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar is slowly spreading to other states across the country. In the politics of many states across the country, one or the other Baahubali is seen to be active. This should be understood as a matter of concern from the point of view of the country's politics.

Baahubali is emerging from colleges!

Most of the Bahubalis who have influenced the politics of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar have a background in college politics. While doing political and social movements at the college level, most of them step into crime and from there directly enter politics. These bahubalis have so much influence on local politics that some of them can even get elected directly from jail.
