Bihar’s ‘son of Mallah’ and Nishad community leader Mukesh Sahni has once again targeted the central and state government. Warning the governments he has announced that if the government fails to take initiatives in providing reservation to Mallah community within 45 days, the Mallah community will start a huge movement against the government.
Sahni is out on a bus yatra that has reached to Asarganj division in Munger. Justifying the bus yatra he explained that the aim is to convey the fight of Nishad reservation at all possibly small level. He is planning to take out the procession from each district of the state and on November 4, he will announce the name of the party in the presence of lakhs of People in Gandhi Maidan in Patna.
“Thousands of office-bearers and workers of the union have participated in the Yatra with thousands of motorcycles and four-wheelers. All the officers and workers from the state, district, block and Panchayat level who are supporting the community are a part of the Yatra,” said Mukesh while addressing people during the Yatra. This bus yatra had thousands of motorcycle and hundreds of four-wheelers.
“We will join hands with any party who will listen to our demands and talk in the favour of Nishad reservation. We have a vote bank of 14 per cent in Bihar. In this case, political parties will need our support in the electoral process to form the government. If our demands are not met, we will launch an independent political party in upcoming Lok Sabha elections and bring candidates for all the 40 seats in Bihar. We can make a government also we can drop a government,” said Mukesh Sahni on being asked about the coalition.
Mukesh also reminded that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP President Amit Shah had promised to give reservation for Nishad community. However, no step has been taken to initiate the process. States including West Bengal and Odisha has given reservations to the people of Nishad community. Why can’t it be given to Nishad community people in Bihar? The result will be seen in 2019.
