After the break-up of the Trinamool Congress in 1998, non-Bengalis, especially the people of Bihari Purvanchali society, were with the Congress. In 1998, 1999 and 2004 Lok Sabha elections, non-Bengali society of Dalan Dalan did not get support after fighting with BJP in Bengal. A few BJP’s Marwari, Gujarati and Sindhi, Punjabi society’s vote-for-alliance ties, but do not let the Left Front give a big blow to the government. The biggest reason is that after the election with BJP, Trinamool Congress, Bihari Purvanchali did not succeed in their support of the vote. Neither the Trinamool BJP alliance will be strong due to the vote bank of the Bihar Bihari Purvanchali Hindu Samaj of the Congress, nor the Left Front weakened.
In 2007, many people were killed by police firing in Bhoomi Bachao Andolan in Nandigram of East Midnapore and after Okra, in the Hoil Singur movement, due to open front against Mamata Banerjee’s Left Front, Trinamool Congress’s dominance in Bengal politics increased. In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, the benefits of contesting with the Congress also became Mamta’s union and Railway Minister in the Manmohan Singh government of the Center. After the 2011 assembly elections, the 34-year-old Left Front government was overthrown with the Congress. After the decision of occupying the power of Bengal, Mamata’s Trinamool Congress became stronger and the Congress became weak. Then, in the center and pardes, along with the other two Dalan, he was released in turn. Due to this, Congress’s Bihari Purvanchali vote bank also went to Trinamool’s house. In the 2016 assembly elections, after the Left Dalit and Congress’s Mahajot Bheela, the vote bank, along with Trinamool, and Mamta’s party alone formed a government with a huge majority. It is said that in the elections of 2016, the BJP was very similar to the Trinamool Congress as if the Left parties could regain control of Bengal with the help of Congress.
But in the 2019 elections, the BJP felt very strongly that it would come straight from Mamta to do it. In the run-up to the strengthening of the Modi government at the Center, the benefits of forming a government in Assam and Tripura also won 18 of the 42 seats in Bengal in the 2019 elections. In E18 Seaton, Barrackpore in the North 24 Parganas district and the Hooghly seat in Hooghly district, from Calcutta, are more important for the BJP’s victory. Bihari Purvanchali people are settled in a lot of Matra in this area of Hooghly river (Ganges river in local) and Basal Kal Karkhana. People of the society who work hard in jute mill and other small factories have been here since many years. Yesterday, in addition to Majuri in Karkhanan, small mote shops have also become a source of livelihood for the people of this society. Even during the rule of Vomcha, Bihari Purvanchali, especially here, people of Hindu society will vote for the Congress. Later all these Trinamool Congress will cast their votes. Apart from this, the people of Muslim community of Bihar Purvanchal were definitely divided between the Congress and the Left Dalan, but after the formation of the Trinamool Congress government, they went to the Trinamool. Today, with the Trinamool, it is believed that in the 2019 elections, the BJP of the people of Bihar- Purvanchal’s Hindu society will go to the BJP’s seat and the Barrackpore and Hooghly seat is occupied by the BJP. Now how the BJP could win in the assembly seat of the region in the 2016 assembly elections is a matter of seeing that the mathematics of the two elections should be different. For this reason, the party of Litti Chokha is also going on behalf of the Trinamool Congress for the sake of keeping the Bihari Purvanchal community in its custody.
It should be noted in this election that the performance of BJP in Calcutta and surrounding areas was held in the Assembly. Such that in this area, apart from Purvanchali and Bihari, two non-Bengali votes are also famous. Particularly Marveari, Gujarati, Sindhi and Punjabi votes. Zacker benefits: In 2019 Lok Sabha elections, except for BJP’s Barrackpore and Hooghly, there is no mixing in Kolkata and Oceal urban areas. Kolkata’s business has a lot of hold on this society, especially the Marwari society. But it is said that the people of Marwari and Dosar business class living in the society of Kolkata were falling in the house of votes. In this era, once the slogan of Jai Shri Ram was given to everyone to vote for them, it was revealed by the election results of the BJP. (Author Sushil Kumar Singh is a senior journalist.)
