Reported & Written By Kumud Sharma, Diary Times, Shimla, March 25: The political turmoil that has been going on for a month has confirmed Kangana Ranaut’s ticket from Mandi. As part of its next strategy, BJP has not fielded Leader of Opposition Jairam Thakur in the Lok Sabha elections. At the same time, in Kangra parliamentary seat, the bet has been played on Dr. Rajeev Bhardwaj, a Brahmin face and an old leader associated with the organization. After Hamirpur and Shimla, the reason for delay in declaring BJP tickets for Mandi and Kangra Lok Sabha seats is the political turmoil that started from February. Earlier it was believed that Jairam Thakur would be the candidate from Mandi, because BJP would not take any risk on this only seat which went to Congress in the by-election.

After winning the Rajya Sabha elections through cross-voting despite being in minority, the BJP, which is planning to put the state government in trouble, does not want to let even a single MLA be reduced under the next front. To maintain the numerical strength, it has been decided that Jairam Thakur will have to be kept active in the politics of Himachal Pradesh. From the political activism of Kangana Ranaut, it seemed from the beginning that BJP has another option for Mandi.

However, Kangana Ranaut’s name was not in the panel of ticket takers. But BJP suddenly surprised by deciding to give ticket to Kangana Ranaut. At the same time, BJP has already experimented with fielding celebrities in the elections in neighboring states like Sunny Deol, Kirron Kher etc. and now it is being tried in Himachal too. In such a situation, by giving the female face of Kangana Ranaut, BJP has targeted half the population of Mandi parliamentary constituency and the Rajput community is also targeted.

Things like Kangana’s profile, outgoing style, association with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, BJP’s advocacy in national level issues would also have been kept in mind. Talking about Kangra, Shanta Kumar and Rajan Sushant from Brahmin community have also won the elections from there. Dr. Rajeev Bhardwaj was the national leader of BJP. He has also been close to Shanta Kumar and is also close to National President Jagatprakash Nadda and regional BJP leaders.

Since two-time BJP MP Kishan Kapoor belonged to the Gaddi community, it was considered appropriate to cut his ticket and give preference to a leader associated with the organization due to his health reasons and to blunt the anti-incumbency factor in Kangra. However, if we talk about the four seats of Himachal Pradesh, Shimla seat is reserved for Scheduled Caste. By giving tickets to Brahmin faces in Kangra and Rajput faces in Mandi and Hamirpur, BJP has also tried to maintain caste and regional balance. So the party has also tried to gain his influence.

ticket fixed on Kangana’s birthday

There was also a meeting of the Parliamentary Board on Saturday, in which Kangana’s ticket was finalized. Kangana’s birthday was also on Saturday. Kangana also performed prayers at Baglamukhi temple Bankhandi. Due to Mandi ticket being pending, discussion had started whether Kangana would be a candidate from Mandi. At the same time, after the ticket was announced, Kangana expressed her gratitude to the high command on social media.
