In such a situation, the question also arises whether the big leaders of NDA did not want the presence of two Bhumihar leaders at the center? Did the NDA leaders feel that having two ministers from Bhumihar caste would create resentment among other castes? Did the BJP leaders feel that with Lalan Singh coming to the center, the stature of Giriraj Singh in the Bhumihar caste would be reduced and it would have an impact on the future politics of BJP? Is Nitish Kumar not fitting Lalan Singh into the political equation and he was just a pawn?
Who is the biggest leader of Bhumihars in Bihar?
Let us tell you that both Lalan Singh and Giriraj Singh come from the same region and both have the same work land. While Giriraj Singh is the MP from Begusarai, Lalan Singh is the MP from Munger.

At the same time, Lalan Singh is a loyal aide who fulfills every wish of Nitish Kumar. In such a situation, should it be assumed that the height of Lalan Singh was reduced due to the increase in the height of Giriraj Singh?
Both Lalan Singh and Giriraj Singh come from the same region and both have the same work land.
Who is more popular among Bhumihars after Shri Krishna Singh?
Let us tell you that apart from Shri Krishna Singh, there has not been any big leader from Bhumihar caste in Bihar, who has the ability to become Chief Minister or a strong Union Minister or who is a leader of the people. Shri Krishna Singh was the first Chief Minister of Bihar from Bhumihar caste, who has the record of being the Chief Minister for the longest time in Bihar. However, the current CM of Bihar, Nitish Kumar, is going to break the record of Shri Krishna Singh by multiplying caste politics.
Where is Bhumihar in central politics?
However, in the current political scenario, there are two or three big faces from the Bhumihar caste in Bihar, who have some credibility in the politics of Bihar and the Center as well. Rajeev Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh from JDU, Giriraj Singh from BJP and Akhilesh Singh from Congress are the three names. Giriraj Singh is a minister at the Center and Lalan Singh is currently walking on the margins. At the same time, Akhilesh Singh is also trying to prove his importance in the current era of Congress.

Lalan Singh not fitting in Nitish’s social equation?
Experts believe that Nitish Kumar is now looking for a different social equation, in which Lalan Singh does not fit. Sanjeev Pandey, a senior journalist who knows Bihar politics closely, says, ‘Because Nitish Kumar is making a social equation to mobilize non-Yadav backward, backward, Dalit and Mahadalit and BJP is also working on this equation for a long time. . Nitish Kumar wants non-Yadav backward to stay with him, but if Nitish Kumar could have made non-Yadav, backward, extreme backward, Dalit and Mahadalit ministers too. But, Nitish Kumar made his self-caste a minister at the Centre. In such a situation, if he is being accused of doing caste politics, then he is not wrong. During the UPA regime, RJD supremo Lalu Yadav very wisely gave a message to the Bhumihar caste by making Bhumihar leader Akhilesh Singh a minister from his quota. If Nitish Kumar had not made a Bhumihar a minister, he would have made a leader of some other caste a minister, then today he would not face this charge. Nitish Kumar has already been accused of promoting his caste in the bureaucracy.
Where is the Bhumihar in Nitish’s social equation now?
Pandey further says, ‘Bhumihar caste is considered very strong in Bihar. Nitish Kumar had also mobilized this caste tremendously in his first and second term. People of Bhumihar caste also considered Nitish Kumar as their leader as an alternative to Lalu. Lalan Singh is an aide of Nitish Kumar of those days. Because, Nitish Kumar feels that the trend of this caste has now shifted towards the BJP, so Nitish Kumar has now started cultivating the Luv-Kush equation. The result of this is that RCP Singh is also the national president of JDU and was also made a minister at the Centre.

Lalan Singh contested the last Lok Sabha elections from Munger by resigning from the Nitish cabinet and won. Lalan Singh had been sitting for the last two years in the hope that he would become a powerful Union Minister, but due to the social equation of Nitish Kumar, his wish could not be fulfilled and Giriraj Singh has emerged as the biggest face not only in BJP but in Bihar NDA at present. However, even his stature is not big enough to become the leader of the Bhumihars.
