Tiwari, who unsuccessfully contested from Gorakhpur on Samajwadi Party ticket in 2009 Lok Sabha polls, joined BJP before Delhi Assembly elections last year. On the other hand, the Congress has decided to field Ravi Kishen from Jaunpur parliamentary seat.

Glamour girl of Bhojpuri cinema Nagma is already swaying to Congress beats. Nagma has been appointed party’s official spokesperson and she can be seen on television during poll discussions. She might also get a bigger role in the party ranks as she has been associated with the party since quite a long time and the party is looking to bring her skills to maximum application this time.

Aam Aadmi Party has roped in another Bhojpuri artist Rina Rani to spice up the political mood. Rina Rani is all set to Lok Sabha polls on AAP ticket and it needs to be mentioned here that Bhojpuri language has an instrumental role in Delhi as well apart from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is also going to deliver his entire lectures in Bhojpuri. Bhojpuri songs are being also played widely in the Purvanchal region during the poll campaigns. Though BJP PM candidate is not well versed with the language, the saffron party is preparing his speech in Bhojpuri language in his own voice with the help of dubbing artists.

The listeners will have an option of hearing the speech in their own language as well. To woo the Bhojpuri-speaking community, political parties are giving ample weightage to movie artists.
