Victory is not in the face of fear, but in the face of struggle!

It is an eternal truth that there is no victory in front of fear. There is death before fear. Victory lies ahead of the struggle. Who knows this better than the leaders of the opposition? Be it Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren or Bihar’s Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav, both know the meaning of struggle from their personal experiences and are also aware of its outcome. Hemant Soren’s father Shibu Soren went to jail many times. He agitated for a separate Jharkhand state. Walked from village to village on foot and awakened the tribals. If he went to jail for the agitation, he also went to jail for corruption, but if he did not leave the support of the public, then the public also did not leave him. They are not scared. His party broke down, corruption cases were against him, he was sent to jail but in the end Jharkhand state was formed and after that how many times his party Jharkhand Mukti Morcha came in government. The legacy of the struggle is the same, which is sitting in the Hemant Soren government.

So, if Hemant is saying that BJP is also a political party and what is the need to be afraid of it. So it seems that they have given up fear. Anyway, the general psychology is that when a person is very scared, then his fear ends. It seems that Hemant Soren’s fear is also over when he said that whose political party will have more support of the people, he will rule. He bluntly said that the support of the public will decide who will rule, not ED or CBI. It is certain that Hemant is understanding the power of the people and also understands the need of struggle to keep the people connected with him. If he leaves the fear of ED, CBI and Income Tax, then the political path is very easy for him.

Tejashwi Yadav also carries the legacy of his father’s struggle in Bihar. His father Lalu Prasad emerged from the JP movement of 1974. Became the Chief Minister of Bihar by overcoming many social and political obstacles. But even after that, difficulties did not leave him. Corruption charges were leveled against him and he had to go to jail. Then Tejashwi Yadav must have been around 10 years old. After that he also saw that Lalu Prasad remained connected with the public despite the CBI and Income Tax lawsuits. There is no need to talk on the merits of the cases, but there was a perception among the public that Lalu Prasad, the messiah of the backward, is being harassed. To maintain this impression, Lalu Prasad worked no less. Even after Lalu Prasad went to jail, his party RJD won many elections. Today RJD is the largest party in Bihar, so the credit goes to Lalu’s struggle and his social equation. Tejashwi is understanding this when he said that he is not afraid of ED, CBI etc. Why should they be afraid anyway? In his house is Misa Bharti, his elder sister, who was named after the draconian law ‘Misa’ i.e. Maintenance of Internal Security brought in during the Emergency. They grew up watching Misa.
