An apparent conflict of interest has ended the alliance between Samajwadi Party and the newly-found Janata Parivar on Thursday. Clearing the air, SP has revealed its intent to contest the Bihar elections independently.

“We will fight the election independently and with our full might,” said SP leader Ram Gopal Yadav. Neither BJP chief Amit Shah nor Prime Minister Narendra Modi was consulted to deliberate on the decision, he added.

On being asked about their future plans, Yadav said, “We will definitely meet the Prime Minister whenever there is an administrative need or for (financial assistance) for the state.”

The party’s Bihar unit will be preparing a list of candidates for the upcoming elections, he said.

Chastising SP’s opportunistic stance, a Bihar BJP legislator Arun Sinha said, “The act of Samajwadi Party shows how desperate and over ambitious the parties were in the alliance. All of them had come together just for the sake of their personal benefits.”

Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal-United and Lalu Prasad’s Rashtriya Janata Dal came together to form the Janata Parivar along with Mulayam Singh’s Samajwadi party; the block initially started as a anti-Modi block.

The Janata Parivar came into existence with a purport to take on the Bharatiya Janata Party that had fared well in a series of state polls in Bihar.

Besides Samajwadi Party, the other Janata Parivar constituents include Janata Dal-United, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Janata Dal (Secular), the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and Samajwadi Janata Party (Chandra Shekhar).

With most senior leaders in the BJP having retired from active politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is now looking towards building a new leadership. Later this month, the RSS will be holding camps in Uttar Pradesh to discuss ways to identify and groom young leaders.

According to a senior RSS functionary in Lucknow, the first camp in this regard will be held in Jhansi, possibly on June 29 and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will be attending it. Another camp is scheduled to be held in Lucknow.

“After Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, there seems to be a dearth of second rung leadership in the bhBJP. There is a need to develop leadership that will carry forward the work initiated by these two leaders.

“Rajnath Singh is a senior leader, but his age is 67. He would have crossed 70 by the time the next general elections are held in 2024. We have to identify and inculcate leadership qualities in the younger lot,” the functionary said.

He further said that identifying young talent that could be groomed for greater responsibilities was a continuous process in the organisation and it never stopped.

“It is not a sudden decision but the RSS leadership always has a vision for the future and thinks ahead. We keep finding young people with leadership skills,” the functionary added.

Earlier this month, the RSS chief had underlined the need for checking misuse of power at a four-day camp that he addressed in Kanpur.

“Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view,” he had said.

The RSS chief had also discussed the topics of nationalism, social equality and service in his interaction with over 600 volunteers. He also focused on qualitative development of the Sangh volunteers and apprised them of his views on dedication towards society.

The RSS leadership is also expected to come to Lucknow for a separate camp at the end of this month. In Lucknow, the RSS leaders will pay homage to senior journalist Rajnath Singh Surya, who passed away earlier this month. Surya was also a senior RSS functionary.

Officially, however, the RSS office bearers said that they had yet to receive any programme of Bhagwat and said that such camps were a ‘routine affair’. (IANS)
