Bihar polls stretched BJP

shah threw himself into campaign

bric-4The Bihar electioneering is over and the dust has settled in New Delhi. Most of the BJP ministers from the Hindi belt returned to Delhi after touring Bihar for a month, with the fatigue showing on their faces. In private conversations they admitted how tough the elections had been. The campaign was fought tirelessly by Amit Shah and his team, who actually created many teams within and outside the state. First, Shah created a team of local leaders who were not only fighting their own elections but also travelling for campaigning. Then he created a team of central leaders like Dharmendra Pradhan, Anant Kumar, Bhupender Yadav and Narendra Singh Tomar, who were at his beck and call.  Sources say Shah’s next political target is West Bengal. Mukul Rai, an accused in the Saradha chit fund scam and aide of Mamata Banerjee, is likely to launch his own political outfit. He is even ready with the party’s name and application to the Election Commission. Whether he will make a dent in Mamata’s citadel has to be awaited but one thing is clear—he knows her political tricks well. He is reportedly in touch with aides of Shah. But Narendra Modi and Shah are currently more involved with the RSS and Mohan Bhagwat. Sources say Bhagwat is convinced that neither the BJP nor the RSS will have a leader like Modi in years to come and he appears in no mood to stop the PM from doing whatever he desires.
