In the 1990 assembly elections, Anand Mohan contested with Mahishi on Janata Dal ticket and defeated Lahtan Chaudhary of Congress by more than 62 thousand votes.
This was the time when the recommendations of the Mandal Commission were implemented in the country. The most important of these recommendations was to give 27% reservation to OBCs in government jobs. The Janata Dal also supported it, but Anand Mohan remained anti-reservation. In 1993, he split from the Janata Dal and formed his own party, which was named 'Bihar People's Party' or BPP. Samata later joined hands with the party.
Big leaders used to come to Anand Mohan's house. What is seen in this picture is former Prime Minister Chandrashekhar. At one time, Anand Mohan was seen as an alternative to Lalu in Bihar.
Convicted in DM murder case, first leader who was sentenced to death
When Anand Mohan started his electoral politics, Chhotan Shukla used to be a leader in Muzaffarpur in Bihar. Anand Mohan and Chhotan Shukla's friendship was very deep.
Chhotan Shukla was killed in 1994. Anand also reached his funeral. A red light carriage was passing through the last journey of Chhotan Shukla, in which Gol Krishna DM of the then Gopalganj was on board.
Seeing the car of the red light, the crowd erupted and beaten Krishna to death. Anand Mohan was accused of killing G. Krishnaiah. It was alleged that he was murdered by the mob at his behest. Anand's wife Lovely Anand's name also came up.
Anand Mohan was imprisoned. In 2007, the lower court sentenced him to death. Anand Mohan is the country's first former MP and former MLA, who received the death penalty. However, the Patna High Court in December 2008 commuted the death sentence to life imprisonment. Later the Supreme Court also upheld the Patna High Court's decision in July 2012. Anand Mohan is still in jail.
Was in jail, but kept winning elections
Lok Sabha elections were held in 1996. Anand Mohan was in jail at that time. From jail, he contested from Shivhar on Samata Party ticket and defeated Ramchandra Poorve of Janata Dal by more than 40 thousand votes. He again contested the Lok Sabha election from Shivhar in 1998, but this time on a Rashtriya Janata Party ticket. He also won this election. Anand Mohan also stood in the 1999 and 2004 Lok Sabha elections, but lost.
Were himself in politics, brought his wife as well
Anand Mohan married Lovely Singh on 13 March 1991. Lovely is the daughter of freedom fighter Manik Prasad Singh. In 1994, after three years of marriage, Lovely Anand's entry into politics was byelection. By-elections were held in Vaishali Lok Sabha seat in 1994, in which Lovely Anand won from here and reached Parliament for the first time.
In Bihar, people call Lovely Anand as sister-in-law. People tell that when sister-in-law came to rally, a crowd of millions gathered. Such a crowd did not even attend Anand Mohan's rallies. Those who have closely watched the politics of Bihar say that even leaders like Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar were stunned at that time, seeing the crowds at Lovely Anand's rallies.
However, the crowds attending Lovely Anand's rallies did not turn into votes. When voting was done, Lovely Anand was defeated.
Lovely parties kept changing, but could not win
It is said about Anand Mohan and Lovely Anand that the faster people did not change clothes, the faster they would change parties. Lovely Anand first became MP by winning the by-election in 1994. At that time he contested from Bihar People's Party. After that, she also stood in the 1999 Lok Sabha elections from Vaishali, but lost.
In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, Lovely contested Shivhar on a Congress ticket, but lost. Meanwhile, in 2004, the Bihar Peoples Party merged with the Congress. In the 2010 Bihar Assembly elections, Lovely stood on the Congress ticket from Alam Nagar, but lost these elections too.
Lovely Anand later joined SP, accusing the Congress. In 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Lovely contested from Shivhar on SP ticket, but lost. In the 2015 assembly elections, she stood in Jitan Ram Manjhi's party Hum (Secular) from Shivhar, but then lost.
Now after the election dates come, Lovely Anand has joined RJD. Because, she has always fought with Shivahar and her husband Anand Mohan has also been an MP from Shivahar, so it is believed that this time she can fight Shivahar itself. Let's see what the result of changing the party is this time?
