Patna: After RAM VILAS, is a million dollar question raised during ongoing

Bihar Assembly elections. Flashback to October 31, 1984. Mrs. Indira Gandhi,

then Prime Minister was assassinated by her bodyguards at her official residence.

Rajiv Gandhi, the elder son was sworn in as Prime Minister after her death.

General Parliamentary Elections were held in December 1984. Indian National

Congress under Rajiv Gandhi won historic landslide victory by getting total 414

seats out of 542 Parliamentary seats. Untimely and brutal death of Indira Gandhi

tilted the electorate in favour of Rajiv Gandhi and he could win so many seats due

to sympathy quotient. Switch on to today. Ram Vilas Paswan, Cabinet Minister in

Narendra Modi led government and founder of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) died

after prolonged illness on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at Delhi. Chirag Paswan his

son and recently nominated as Party President was beside him at the time of his

death. Bihar Assembly Elections 2020 are round the corner. List of candidates of

all parties contesting forthcoming election is final. LJP last week announced that

it will not partner with Nitish Kumar led Janta Dal United (JDU) and will contest

all seats on its own, though will support Prime Minister Narenra Modi. Whether

Ram Vilas Paswan aka “Political Weatherman” before breathing his last decided

to go solo by severing ties with JDU in ensuing elections? If the answer of it is

yes and taking into consideration his all past political moves, it would be quite

interesting to watch LJP performance in this election.

After Ram Vilas sympathy vote will help Chirag

The psyche of people in Bihar, death of Ram Vilas Paswan would definitely

generate sympathy factor in favour of Chirag Paswan and LJP as was the case

with Rajiv Gandhi though it is out of question that Chirag would get landslide

victory but it is sure that Ram Vilas death would definitely make an impact on

polling. Dalits which constitutes about 17% of population may now rally behind

Chirag Paswan since Ram Vilas was one of the towering Dalit leader as of now.

The party may also encash the date of death of Ram Vilas which coincides with

Jai Prakash Narain, who led the great movement against Indira Gandhi in 1974

from Bihar.
