Om Prakash Rajbhar, the Chief of Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), has announced plans to contest two seats in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in Bihar. Speaking at a public rally in Rohtas district, Rajbhar criticized Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, accusing them of exploiting Dalits and Backward Castes for votebank politics without working for their upliftment.
Rajbhar expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of development for Dalits, backward, and deprived sections in Bihar, stating that the political leaders in the state have not taken meaningful steps to address their concerns. In response to this, he declared his intention to contest two Lok Sabha seats in the 2024 polls and also announced plans for his party to contest 10 seats in the 2025 Bihar Assembly elections.
Om Prakash Rajbhar is a prominent Backward Caste leader in Uttar Pradesh, and his decision to enter the political fray in Bihar could impact the votebank dynamics, potentially influencing the political landscape and challenging the stronghold of leaders such as Nitish Kumar, Lalu Prasad, Chirag Paswan, and Jitan Ram Manjhi.
