In election campaign Manjhi getting a very good response from the people. After PM Modi, he is second most popular campaigner from NDA. Manjhi is very popular among Dalits and Mahadalits but upper cast not very happy with him. Several times Majhi had given wrong statement against upper cast.
Manjhi served under multiple Chief Ministers like Chandrashekhar Singh, Bindeshwari Dubey, Satyendra Narayan Sinha, Jagannath Mishra, Laloo Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi.
If NDA win maximum number of seats in second phase, Majhi’s role will become bigger in Bihar politics. Majhi is all set to take revenge from Nitish Kumar and Bihar assembly speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary. Only due to Uday Narayan Chaudhary, Majhi contesting election from Imamganj apart from Makhdumpur.
