Hajipur Lok Sabha Election Summary
It has clearly been a Ram versus Ram political battle in Hajipur. One of the forty Lok Sabha constituencies in the eastern state of Bihar, Hajipur has attracted much attention this election season. It has been a bipolar fight between sitting MP and JD (U) leader Ram Sunder Das and Ram Vilas Paswan, Chief of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP). Although Sanjeev Prasad Tony of the Congress and Raj Kumar Paswan of the AAP also contested from this constituency, their presence was marred by the political prominence of the LJP and JD (U) candidates. Ram Vilas Paswan of the Lok Jan Shakti Party defeated Sanjeev Prasad Tony by a vote count of 225500 . Ram Vilas Paswan bagged 455652 votes, emerging winner. It must be noted that Das had defeated Paswan in the same constituency by a margin of 37,954 votes in the 2009 general elections. However, the political equation was slightly altered this time, as Paswan re-aligned with the BJP, ahead of the polls. Paswan campaigned along the ‘Modi wave', claiming that the two parties, BJP and LJP would together bring development in the Hajipur constituency. The political divorce of the 17-year old tie of JD(U) and BJP, seems to have affected the condition of Das in the 2014 election. Along elections in Hajipur have traditionally been fought on caste and religious affiliations and priorities, Paswan campaigned on his success of bringing national recognition to Hajipur through his railway projects. Das, on the other hand, has been a strong adherent of the JD (U) trump card of ‘development', along Nitish Kumar's style. Das, one of the oldest and most veteran candidates to contest the elections, gave rise to controversy over Paswan's marital status while the latter filed his nominations. Seven- time MP Paswan's decision to ally with the BJP has proved to be of immense significance, so far as the electorate is concerned.
Although Paswan, who won the Hajipur seat for the first time in 1977, had lost the seat once earlier in 1984 , the vote appeal in this constituency remained along caste lines. For the LJP party, this victory means a significant inroad in a region which was non- accessible to them for a long period of time.
