Vikassheel Insaan Party (VIP) not called all-party meeting chaired by Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday on the issue of class census. Annoyed at not being called to the party meeting, Mukesh Sahni vehemently protested.
Although, Sahni welcomed the green signal for the class census during the all-party meeting, but at the same time said that when Bihar’s all-party delegation met Prime Minister Narendra Modi under the leadership of Nitish Kumar on the issue class. Last year’s census, he was a part of it, but in the plenary meeting held on Tuesday, the VIP was not invited.
Sahni says he supports the fact that there should be a caste census in Bihar and he has always sided with Nitish Kumar on this issue. Sahni said that he also wrote to Parliamentary Affairs Minister Vijay Kumar Choudhary about not being invited to the all-party meeting.
He said that there are many political parties representing different social classes in Bihar. Political parties that received public support in the last congressional elections, even if they do not have any MLA, their opinions and views should be expressed in the meeting. I am currently a member of Bihar Legislative Assembly.
Mukesh Sahani spoke out on the issue of the class census. He felt that with the help of this matter he would also participate in political discussions, but he was not called. The VIP leader said that all the parties of the state should be called to discuss in the all-party meeting as it is an important topic of the state.
Notably, Lok Janshakti (Ram Vilas) MP, Chirag Paswan, was also not invited to the all-party meeting due to the class census. The party’s state chairman, Raju Tiwari, said it was unknown why the government decided not to include the party in the meeting.
