Bihar Congress on Tuesday released the list of star campaigners for the Tarapur and Kusheshwarsthan assembly by-elections. In this, from former Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar to Kanhaiya Kumar, Hardik Patel and Jignesh Mevani have been included. Kanhaiya’s campaign is being considered important because Congress wants to strengthen the party in Bihar with the help of him. In response to Tejashwi, she wants to bring him in front.
Senior and new leaders have also been given place in the list. Shatrughan Sinha and Kirti Azad are also among the star campaigners. Interestingly, former MP Ranjit Ranjan is not in this list. Congress wanted her husband Pappu Yadav to help Congress completely in the by-election. Whereas, Pappu wanted Congress to form an alliance with him. This did not happen and Pappu Yadav had announced to make Yogi Chaupal the candidate. Ranjeet Ranjan is the secretary of the All India Congress.
