Harivansh Narayan Singh Career

It is said about Harivansh that they have made a big contribution in making Nitish Kumar’s image in the media from Delhi to Patna. Harivansh Rajput comes from the caste and if the voters agree, by making Harivansh as the Deputy Speaker’s candidate, the NDA has also tried to get Rajput Vote Bank in Bihar. BJP is hoping that opposing a clear image of Harivish will not be easy for any party.

The NDA does not have a majority in the Rajya Sabha. In such a case, the NDA’s attempt is to carry forward such a name, which in turn gives support to the parties of opposition parties, keeping in view this, NDA has named Harivansh for the first time.
