The Bhim Army president Chandra Shekhar Azad is all set to take its political twist on march 15 the birth anniversary of Kanshi Ram the founder of Bahujan Samaj Party. The launch date for the new political party has been carefully and strategically chosen by the Bhim Army in order to woo the Dalit community.
As of now, there are some names under consideration for the party names including Azad Bahujan Party, Bahujan Azad Party .Out of these names, the final name of the party could be ‘Bahujan Azad Party’, revealed sources.The preparations are being finalised for the party’s launch on March 15, 2020.
It is also the birth anniversary of Kanshi Ram, who had given a new ray of hope to Bahujans of the country. Leaders from other political parties are also coming to join the party that will be floated by Bhim Army.Chandrashekhar says that , the government’s worst nightmare come true. Along with unsettling the state and the central government, the Bhim Army has made the Bahujan Samaj Party look up and take notice of how things slipped out of its hands.
Meanwhile, the Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party is keeping a close eye on the activities of Bhim Army and a key meeting has been called in this regard in April first week. Sources revealed that the major cause of concern for the BSP was the Bhim Army’s appeal among youngsters and some leaders from the Dalit fraternity. To overcome Bhim Army’s growing popularity, a new strategy is also being discussed in the BSP to counter the affect on youngsters from the Dalit community.BSP has also allegedly asked its workers to celebrate the birth anniversary of the BSP founder Kanshi Ram across the state with much fervour.
Chandra shekhar Azad had also met former BJP ally and Chief of Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party, Om Prakash Rajbhar which speculated the possibility of him joining the Bhagidari Sankalp Morcha ahead of 2022 state assembly polls.
Chandrashekhar’s call for consolidation of Muslims and Dalits is another important aspect of concern for many. “No other party has shown that it wants to consolidate Muslims as part of its growth plan. Most of the time, it’s been just talks. On the other hand, the percentage of Muslims in Bhim Army is too strong for the opposition to ignore,”, adding that Chandrashekhar’s speech in New Delhi’s Jantar Mantar only reinstated the faith of the people in Dalit-Muslim unity.
