In the 2015 elections, the Congress lost 27 seats but the rice bowl ie Rohtas district party was restless. That’s why Bihar Election 2020 In
The Congress is contesting two seats in Rohtas district. Apart from Kargahar Assembly, the Congress candidates are also trying their luck this time on Chenari reserved seat. While Santosh Mishra has been nominated from Karghar, Murari Prasad Gautam has been fielded from Chenari. According to the Congress, there is a lot of resentment towards Nitish Kumar and the government’s image has become negative in the public due to the plunder in development schemes. The Congress claims that the Congress will win elections in both the seats in Rohtas district.
Chenari SC is the secure assembly seat for ST. Here Murari Prasad Gautam of Congress is pitted against JDU candidate Lalan Paswan. In Karghar, Congress’ Santosh Mishra is fighting Vashist Singh of JDU. The Congress has put full force on these two seats in the district this time. He is leaving no stone unturned to win both the seats.
Bet on the sons of old Congressmen
The Congress has given Karghar seat to District President Santosh Mishra. Santosh Mishra’s father Girish Narayan Mishra was the Minister of State in the Jagannath Mishra cabinet. Not only Rohtas, people in the surrounding districts also praise Congress leader Girish Narayan Mishra. After a long struggle, his son Santosh Mishra got a Congress ticket from Kargahar this time. In such a situation, the old Congressmen have lost their lives. On the other hand, the Congress has fielded former MLA Murari Prasad Gautam from Chenari seat. Murari Prasad Gautam is also the son of Mahendra Ram, an old Congressman. Murari won the by-election after the demise of Mahendra Ram. But in the 2015 assembly elections, the Congress did not give ticket to Murari Gautam and the party lost the Chenari seat.
What do workers say
This time, the Congress has relied completely on both the young faces in the district with confidence. Congress workers also do not want to miss this time. Congress workers across the district are camping in Chenari and Kargahar areas. But the important issue is whether this time in the Nitish-led NDA, the path of the Congress will be as smooth as in 2015?
