Suhaldev Bharatiya Samaj Party national president Om Prakash Rajbhar’s joining the SP has made life difficult for the BJP. However, depending on other leaders in the Rajbhar community, the BJP tried to strengthen its political grip, but was unsuccessful.

By the way, despite being with Omprakash Rajbhar, the BJP has begun work to strengthen its own institutional grip and reach this vote. Meanwhile, the opposition’s bet on Rajbhar will increase the challenge to the BJP in Purvanchal. Only time will tell how the BJP will overcome this challenge.
Opposition parties seem to be gearing up to ease the BJP’s grip on Purvanchal in three consecutive elections with its own political figures. It is a well-known fact that Amit Shah, who became the BJP state in-charge in Uttar Pradesh in 2013, was made to work deeply on Hindutva as well as caste mathematics.
Omprakash took leaders like Rajbhar and Anupriya Patel, whose influence is visible in their society. He also conveyed the message that other castes should give priority to their castes in the BJP by joining the party or raising the level of activists of those castes in the party. It also benefited the party.
