Samrat Chaudhary was a minister of Panchayati Raj in the NDA government. Samrat Chaudhary is a member of the Bihar Legislative Council at this time.
Notably, the appointment of Choudhary to the key post, a year ahead of Lok Sabha elections, which will be followed by assembly polls in 2025, is seen as an attempt by the BJP to cut into Kushwaha votes and thwart consolidation of all OBCs in favour of ‘Mahagathbandhan’.
