- BJP eyeing Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan
- Arjun Ram Meghwal was made the Law Minister
- By which the votes of the Medhwal community can be won
BJP is eyeing Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. Especially BJP’s focus is more on Rajasthan. After making Arjun Ram Meghwal the Law Minister, the debate has intensified. The Meghwal community still votes for the Congress in large numbers, but with their help the BJP wins seats reserved for Scheduled Castes.
With Karnataka elections over, BJP’s full focus is now on Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. MP from Rajasthan’s Bikaner Arjun Ram Meghwal has been made the Law Minister. However, there was talk in state politics that he would be removed from central politics and sent to Rajasthan where he would be made the chairman of the election campaign committee. A large number of Dalits in Rajasthan and especially the Meghwals are still with the Congress. In such a situation, Arjun Ram Meghwal was considered certain to be the face of Dalit, but he has been given a big responsibility at the Centre. This has also brought relief to the Vasundhara group as their group has been waiting for the chief post of Prachar Samiti for Vasundhara Raje for a long time.
Meghwal is 60 percent in the state
In Rajasthan, Dalits constitute about 16 percent and Meghwals account for 60 percent of the population. However, BJP’s Dalit MP Nihal Chand Meghwal has won the Lok Sabha seat 6 times from Sriganganagar Lok Sabha seat adjacent to Arjun Ram Meghwal’s Bikaner Lok Sabha seat and was included in the cabinet in the Modi government when Narendra Modi first became the Prime Minister. In 2014. However, Arjunram Meghwal, a third time MP, was made a minister after Nihalchand was accused of rape. Meghwal started taking interest in politics after BJP’s former deputy chief minister Harishankar Bhabhada, who hails from Bikaner region, became OSD. Later, after being promoted from the State Administrative Service, he also became the Collector.
Meghwal community votes for Congress
Let me tell you that the Meghwal community still votes for the Congress in large numbers, but the BJP wins reserved seats for the Scheduled Castes with their help. At times in the political circle, Arjunram Meghwal’s hold is not considered very strong among the masses, as he was an officer and came into politics with the VRS. But they are considered strong from an organizational point of view. BJP has also included him in its core committee formed for the Rajasthan elections. However, his administrative experience is believed to be behind his appointment as Law Minister.
A cloud of grief hung over Meena’s community
However, on the other hand, Dr. Kirorilal Meena was supposed to be inducted into the cabinet, which has hurt the tribal i.e. Meena community. The Meena community still votes for the Congress in large numbers. In the politics of the state, there was a lot of discussion about the inclusion of Dr. Kirorilal Meena in the Union Cabinet.
