Political parties in Bihar have 2025 in mind while contesting 2020 polls (Comment)
The 2020 state election in Bihar is probably the last one where the three Socialist leaders around whom the politics of Bihar has revolved in the last three decades -- Lalu Prasad, Nitish Kumar and the late Ram Vilas Paswan -- will have direct or indirect influence. The demise of Ram Vilas Paswan and the fact that Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar are now veteran politicians, the next state polls in 2025 could see a new start in Bihar politics, presenting a fresh and fair opportunity to every party, large or small. The political parties and their leaders in Bihar understand this. Hence, while they contest the present elections, they have 2025 in mind -- and the strategies they have devised for 2020 seem to be aligned to their plans beyond 2020.
