- Lalan Singh appointed as the new national president of JDU
- Nitish expressed confidence in the companion of the days of struggle
- Lalan Singh has been troubleshooter for Nitish Kumar
Nitish Kumar the companions of the days of struggle Lalan Singh Trusted. The command of Janata United was handed over to Lalan Singh. In the meeting of the National Executive at the National Office in Delhi on Saturday, MP Lalan Singh was elected as the new President.
Lalan also has mastery in election management
Apart from being close to Nitish Kumar, Munger MP Rajeev Ranjan alias Lalan Singh has also mastered election management. The then National President and Union Minister RCP Singh brought a proposal for the name of Lalan Singh. Everyone gave their consent to this. CM Nitish Kumar first congratulated Lalan Singh on becoming the national president. Nitish Kumar, RCP Singh, KC Tyagi, Lalan Singh and Vashistha Narayan Singh were present on the stage.
Nitish has faith in social engineering
By making Lalan Singh the national president of the party, Nitish Kumar expressed confidence in social engineering by expanding the party from the realm of ‘Love-Kush’. According to the caste equation, Lalan Singh will be seen as the upper caste face in JDU. The charge against Nitish Kumar of continuously promoting ‘Luv-Kush’ will also end. RCP Singh and Nitish Kumar belong to Kurmi caste. While JDU’s state president Umesh Kushwaha and Upendra Kushwaha are from Koiri caste. In such a situation, in JDU, only Luv-Kush dominated. Now after Lalan Singh became the national president, the entry of the upper castes (Bhumihar Brahmins) has taken place.
The first upper caste president in the history of 18 years
Lalan Singh is the first upper caste president in the 18-year history of JDU. Earlier all the three presidents were from OBCs. JDU was established on 30 October 2003. The first national president of JDU was Sharad Yadav. After that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar became the President of JDU. After Nitish Kumar, RCP Singh was made the president of the party. Now Lalan Singh has been given the responsibility.
Selectively took revenge on Chirag Paswan
Apart from Nitish Kumar’s maths, Lalan has many of his own qualities which make him special. Nitish Kumar had to suffer a lot in the assembly because of Chirag Paswan. Lalan Singh took revenge by choosing him. First the lone MLA of LJP was included in the party. Means closed ‘account’ in the assembly. After this ‘Mission Delhi’ started. Broke five MPs including Chirag’s uncle and party. On 18 February, 208 leaders including 18 district presidents and 5 state general secretaries of LJP were included in JDU.
Lalu Yadav’s arch rival Lalan Singh
Another specialty of Lalan Singh is that he is a staunch opponent of Lalu Yadav. It is said that he played a big role in getting Lalu Yadav to jail. Lalan Singh had gone to the Supreme Court for an early hearing of the case. Lalan Singh also played an important role in breaking the leaders from Congress and RJD. Overall, along with fighting Lalu Prasad, Lalan Singh is also fit in terms of social engineering. Being a savarna, Nitish Kumar will also be spared the charge of promoting a particular caste.
Personal relationship with Nitish Kumar is also better
Along with Nitish Kumar, Lalu Yadav, Sushil Kumar Modi, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Lalan Singh also started his political career with the JP movement. Lalan Singh graduated from TNB College, Bhagalpur. He was also the General Secretary of the College Students Union. He also participated in JP movement. Since the entry of Nitish Kumar in the politics of Bihar, Lalan Singh remained his chief strategist. There were many talks about the closeness of Nitish Kumar and Lalan Singh, but the good coordination between the two remained intact. On the strength of strong relations with Nitish Kumar, Lalan Singh became the most powerful leader in JDU after Nitish Kumar. In 2019, JDU MP Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh, who won the elections from Munger Lok Sabha constituency for the third time, was made the leader of the party in the 17th Lok Sabha.
