obc politics is changing in india

obc politics is changing in india

For the last few days, politics has come in the center on OBC and related issues. It has also started having an impact on the organization and leadership within the political parties. The demand of OBC leaders has started increasing within all the parties. Efforts are being made to increase the share of OBCs in the organization. At the same time, all the big national and regional parties have suddenly become active in order to influence even the small parties which influence the OBC vote. The assessment of all parties is that in 2024, the stronger OBC players in the political team, the more it will get the benefit and it will be able to score better on the election pitch.

The effect of trying to woo the OBC leadership is starting to show in the electoral states as well. Akhilesh Yadav is also realizing his old political mistake in Uttar Pradesh. At the time of Mulayam Singh Yadav, a large section of OBCs was with the Samajwadi Party, but later the distance between Yadav and non-Yadav OBCs increased and this SP vote went to the BJP. Seeing the opportunity, BJP won almost all the non-Yadav OBC votes in its favor in 2017 and won a big victory. This time Akhilesh Yadav is reaching out to the leaders of OBCs to get the lost support among these small castes. On the other hand, BJP is not ready to reduce its hold in any way. The increasing inquiries of leaders like Om Prakash Rajbhar, Sanjay Nishad, Anupriya Patel, Sanjay Chauhan before the elections in the state are also the result of this trend.

That’s why Baghel’s hand remained up

After the death of Kalyan Singh, BJP is trying to put its OBC leaders on one platform on the pretext of respecting him. At the same time, Mayawati has made a strategy to give more preference to Brahmin and OBC leaders within her party. It is believed that this time the OBC leaders can get the most benefit in ticket distribution in the elections. Similarly, in Chhattisgarh, when there was factionalism between Bhupesh Baghel vs TS Singh Deo over the post of CM, Baghel’s being a strong OBC leader went in his favor. There was a general opinion within the party that in the current environment, the risk of destabilizing an OBC leader like Baghel cannot be taken. On the other hand, the BJP leadership is giving a message in Chhattisgarh that if BJP wins the elections, then only an OBC will become the CM. OBC-centric politics is still at the center in the neighboring state of Madhya Pradesh. While Congress is promoting young leaders like Jitu Patwari, Shivraj Singh Chouhan is trying to give a political message by calling himself an OBC leader.

In Bihar, RJD has even launched a special campaign to make OBCs in their favor. The party said that OBC faces would be given maximum opportunity from media to stage. Tejashwi Yadav also faces the challenge of adding non-Yadav OBCs like Akhilesh Yadav. Tejashwi Yadav in Bihar has also devised a strategy to give more preference to OBC leaders in the party by moving away from his traditional Muslim-Yadav equation. On the other hand, Nitish Kumar is trying to play several political bets one after the other to establish himself as an OBC leader once again. Whether it is Maharashtra or Madhya Pradesh, Congress and BJP are making a strategy to give preference to OBC faces in these states too.

Secrets of promotion of cabinet expansion

Actually, the opposition wants to reach out to the OBC voters before the 2024 general elections. He believes that if he could not improve his position among OBC voters, then the problem for him will increase in the coming days. Strong OBC leadership within these parties will also be needed to reach out to OBC voters. It is also the largest group in terms of numbers. In recent times, BJP has taken several steps one after the other to make this voter group in its favor. Also given a place in leadership. Recently, when the cabinet expansion took place in the second term of the Modi government, most OBC leaders were given space and it was also widely publicized.

In fact, for the past few days, such incidents happened one after the other in the politics of the country, which brought OBC politics to the centre. First the demand for caste census was made an issue. When all the regional parties started increasing pressure on the BJP regarding this demand, its effect was also visible on the government. There is a parallel demand to make the Rohini Commission report public. Under this, the Modi government is trying to find a quota within the 27 percent reservation in the OBC quota for the last three years.

While the BJP tried to counter the pending reservation for OBCs in the NEET exam and the amendment to the 102nd Amendment to the Constitution by empowering states to identify OBC castes, challenges remain. At the same time, the opposition parties realize that they can counter BJP’s aggressive Kamandal politics with Mandal politics. It is believed that OBC politics will come to the fore more prominently before the general elections and the demand for increasing reservation can become a big issue. In such a situation, in order to get maximum political benefit on this issue, all the parties have to form their team afresh.
