This Bhojpuri Singer is Ready to Take on BJP in Nawada Lok Sabha Election

Gunjan Singh, a Bhojpuri singer, is the only star from Bihar contesting the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Despite efforts, he received no party ticket and is running independently from Nawada.

As the nation gears up for the Lok Sabha elections, Bhojpuri cinema stars have entered the political arena with fervor. However, while some have successfully embarked on their electoral journey, others have faced setbacks.

Renowned figures like Ravi Kishan, Dinesh Lal Yadav Nirahua, and Manoj Tiwari have chosen to contest from states outside Bihar, leaving their home state behind. Meanwhile, Pawan Singh’s aspirations to kickstart his political career in Bihar have been dashed, possibly due to a lack of party ticket. Independent candidate Gunjan, too, has entered the fray after failing to secure a ticket from any party, expressing disappointment at the political landscape.

Gunjan Kumar, the sole Bhojpuri star vying for a seat from Bihar in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, highlighted the lack of representation for Bhojpuri stars in their own regional stronghold. Despite approaching multiple parties for a ticket from the Nawada constituency, he was left with no choice but to contest independently.

The absence of Bhojpuri stars from Bihar and Jharkhand, hubs of the regional film industry, in the electoral lineup raises questions about political parties’ reluctance to field them. Gunjan Singh’s plight underscores a broader issue of underrepresentation and raises speculation about the dynamics behind party ticket distribution for Bhojpuri stars.
