On Sunday, senior Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav said that the merger of Janata Parivar will not be possible before the Bihar assembly election.

“There is a technical problem. The problem is that if a political party tells the Election Commission that they are going to merge and form a new party, then the original name and symbols of the party will be frozen. The Bihar elections are near and the merger cannot be done in a hurry,” Yadav told ANI.

“We have no right to confuse our voters. So the better option is that both the parties work together and fight the election jointly. We will be signing the death warrant of our party if we do the merger in a hurry,” he added.

On April 15, in a joint press conference the merger announcement was made in the presence of all top Janata Parivar leaders, including  Mulayam, Sharad, Nitish, Lalu and former Prime Minister and JD(S) HD Deve Gowda.

“We don’t have any issue regarding Janata Parivar be united or not, the people did not like this type of juxtaposed party. We are always with the people and are confident to win the Bihar elections,” said, West Bengal BJP president Rahul Sinha.

The Bihar Election, scheduled to be held later this year, will be the first major challenge for Janata Parivar as for years there has been a bitter rivalry between JD (U)’s Nitish Kumar and RJD’s Lalu Prasad.

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)
