Bhima will camp in Gorakhpur.
Bhim Army and his party workers will camp in Gorakhpur in support of Azad Samaj Party chief Chandrashekhar Ravana. Party sources say that more than 500 workers will campaign continuously for Chandrashekhar Ravana in Gorakhpur Sadar seat.
In fact, Chandrashekhar Ravana had announced that the seat from where CM Yogi will contest, he will fill the form from there. In such a situation, after Yogi’s decision to contest from Gorakhpur, Chandrashekhar has also announced to contest from there. Although the initial phases of elections are to be held in western Uttar Pradesh, Chandrashekhar will not be able to go to Gorakhpur for campaigning. In his place, his party workers have taken over the responsibility.
Chandrashekhar and his party have said many times in gestures that he has been declared a joint candidate against Yogi from Gorakhpur. For this, the party has also received information about seeking support from all the parties. Chandrashekhar had Ravana in front of his name in the early days of his political career. Chandrashekhar has been hurting the religious system in the early stages of his politics. Although it was not liked by many religious people. On the other hand, Yogi Adityanath is the biggest face of Hindutva, in such a situation it will be interesting to see how much the people of Gorakhpur like Chandrashekhar as compared to Yogi. The base vote of Chandrashekhar and Azad Samaj Party is also more in western Uttar Pradesh. Despite that, contesting from Gorakhpur seat of UP is being said to be a big decision.
Kanshi Ram and Arvind Kejriwal have done this
Chandrashekhar considers Kanshi Ram as his ideal. Like Kanshi Ram, he wants to compete with big names in politics. So this decision has been taken. In 1988, Kanshi Ram contested from Allahabad seat against future Prime Minister VP Singh and performed impressively, but lost by 70,000 votes. Similarly, the National President of Aam Aadmi Party and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal contested against PM Narendra Modi in 2014. Kejriwal had lost that election but he got popularity on the scale of the whole country. Now Chandrashekhar has also decided to contest his first election with the most powerful face of UP and the current CM Yogi Adityanath.
