Did Leaving BJP Prove Costly for Bhojpuri Superstar Pawan Singh? Routed in Lok Sabha Election 2024

Examining the Impact of Pawan Singh's Exit from the BJP on his Loss in the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections

Pawan Singh

The 2024 Lok Sabha elections saw Pawan Singh enter politics, which was a significant step forward for him in Indian politics, however it ended in failure. Pawan Singh contested the Lok Sabha election in 2024 as an independent candidate, lost to Raja Ram Singh from the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) (Liberation). Raja Ram Singh secured 380,581 votes, while Pawan Singh garnered only 274,723 votes. Consequently, Raja Ram Singh emerged victorious with a margin of 105,858 votes. Even though Pawan Singh is a well-known Bhojpuri celebrity, his attempt to win the Karakat constituency in Bihar ended in heavy loss, but it provided insightful information on the difficulties experienced by famous people running for elections.

Impact of Leaving BJP

Pawan Singh‘s chances of winning an election were severely damaged by his dismissal from the BJP. The party’s move damaged his reputation with voters. This raised doubts on his political understanding and his capacity to handle the complex web of conflicts and alliances that characterises Indian politics.

Lack of Support from Rajput Community

Pawan Singh’s inability to garner support from the Rajput community within the Karakat constituency was a significant factor in his defeat. The split in votes between Singh and the Rashtriya Lok Morcha candidate, an ally of the BJP, notably impacted Singh’s electoral prospects. This emphasises how important it is to stay in close contact with one’s core supporters, especially in the case of well-known politicians.


Pawan Singh’s overconfidence in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections is considered to be one of the primary causes of his defeat. Even though the BJP gave him a ticket for the Asansol seat, he turned it down and decided to run on his own. His chances of winning an election were severely harmed by this choice .

Facing Experienced Politicians

In Karakat, Singh encountered experienced politicians from established parties, including Raja Ram Singh and Upendra Kushwaha. Against such experienced opponents, Singh struggled to maintain his political foothold

Disconnect between Celebrity Appeal and Political Support

Even though Pawan Singh’s campaign rallies drew sizable crowds, his fame did not transfer into votes. His rallies drew large crowds, but the lack of electoral success underscores the disconnect between public appeal and political support for celebrities. This reflects the fact that in India’s extremely competitive political landscape, celebrity power on its own does not ensure success.
