Bihar: 2014 Lok Sabha results The Times of India

Lalu's daughter, wife bite dust; Paswans make it

The Times of India May 17 2014


Bihar results were a major setback for RJD chief Lalu Prasad and a big boost for LJP boss Ramvilas Paswan. While Lalu's wife Rabri Devi and daughter Misa Bharti lost along with Congres's Meira Kumar, the LJP chief made it to the Lok Sabha along with his son Chirag and brother Ram Chandra Paswan.

Among other big guns who lost were JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav and filmmaker Prakash Jha, and RJD's Prabhunath Singh and Raghuvansh Prasad Singh. But the focus of attention were star kids Chirag and Misa, for whom their parties worked tirelessly for weeks.

Chirag was in a close contest with Bihar speaker Uday Narain Choudhary of JD(U) and RJD's Sudhanshu Shekhar Bhaskar. Both finished almost one lakh votes behind him. “My victory is my father's who went against many people and decided to field me from a key constituency ,“ said a beaming Chirag. Once a Bollywood wannabe, Chirag will now be sharing a seat in the Lok Sabha with his father who won from Hajipur against Sanjeev Prasad Toni of Congres by over 80,000 votes. Ramvilas's brother won Samastipur defeating Congres's Ashok Kumar by nearly 10,000 votes.

Pataliputra was the key constituency for Lalu Prasad after his `Hanuman' Ram Kripal switched over to BJP and contested against Misa. Lalu had left no stone unturned to ensure her victory , but she lost to her `chacha' by over 45,000 votes.

Rabri Devi, who was trying to retain her husband Lalu's fort in Saran, lost to BJP's Rajiv Pratap Rudy by over 40,000 votes. Lalu was the Saran MP before he was disqualified from contesting after conviction in a fodder scam case. Meanwhile, Meira lost to Chhedi Paswan of BJP in Sasaram by over 63,000 votes.

Interestingly , a husbandwife duo also made it to the LS from two different parties. Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav (RJD) defeated JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav by close to 60,000 votes in Madhepura while his wife Ranjeet Ranjan of Congres defeated Dileshwar Kamait of JD(U) in neighbouring Supaul by almost 50,000 votes.

BJP, JD(U), LJP win

Modi-Nitish chemistry upsets RJD arithmetic, May 24, 2019: The Times of India

Constituencies won by the main political parties in Bihar in the Lok Sabha elections of 2014 and 2019.

The Narendra Modi-Nitish Kumar combine crushed the social engineering of Bihar’s mahagathbandhan with a near clean sweep on Thursday, winning 39 of the state’s 40 seats.

The NDA decimated the Opposition, with Lalu Prasad’s RJD and allies RLSP, HAM (S) and VIP failing to open their account. Congress got the lone face-saving seat — Muslimdominated Kishanganj — for the mahagathbandhan.

RJD had fielded candidates in 19 seats, Congress in nine, Upendra Kushwaha’s RLSP in five, and Jitan Ram Manjhi-led HAM (S) and Mukesh Sahni-led VIP in three each. The mahagathbandhan had left the Ara Lok Sabha seat for CPI(ML), which it lost.

While BJP and JD(U) contested 17 seats each, Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP fought the remaining six. BJP and LJP won all the seats they fought while JD(U) lost only one. In 2014, the NDA, which included BJP and LJP, had won 31 seats, while the RJD-Congress-NCP alliance had won seven. JD(U) had won only two.

Thanking the people of the state, Nitish said: “We sought votes on the basis of the work done by Modi at the Centre and the work done by us in the state. The way people have voted for us, it has increased our commitment even more. We will continue to work for development of Bihar.”

On whether JD(U) will join the government at the Centre, he said, “It is the discretion of the people leading the government who they want to include in the Cabinet. If they want to include the allies, there is nothing wrong in it.”

The Bihar chief minister, when asked about granting of special status to the state, said that at a meeting of the NDA two days ago, he had stressed on the need for special steps to address the issue of development. “I focused on two things — freeing states like Bihar from underdevelopment and women’s empower ment. Even the PM accepted that there is a need for special attention to undeveloped states,” he said Political observers said smaller parties in the mahagahbandhan have been wiped out because the ruling coalition consolidated its votes on the twin issues of nationalism and development.

“The results have shown that people in Bihar have voted on the issue of a strong government at the Centre and nationalism along with Nitish’s development plank. The mahagathbandhan, on the other hand, failed to repeat its performance of the 2015 assembly elections. It had then focused on consolidating the backward class votes,” said Nawal Kishore Chaudhary, social scientist and former principal of Patna College.

The mahagathbandhan’s rout can be attributed partly to its internal bickering. The allies could not put up a united front and managed to finalise the seat-sharing arrangement only in March. Besides, they failed to stop rebellion in constituencies like Madhubani and Supaul and lacked coordination in electioneering.

The results give an edge to the NDA ahead of the Bihar assembly polls, likely to be held in October-November next year.
