No BJP ticket for Anand Mishra, who took VRS from IPS

The battle of Buxar is likely to be tricky with former IPS Anand Mishra likely to contest as an independent after being denied BJP ticket

Former IPS, Anand Mishra, who recently took voluntary retirement to contest election from Buxar on BJP ticket, suffered a setback as the saffron party has  given ticket to Mithilesh Tiwari, who replaced sitting MP and Ashwini Choubey from Buxar.

Anand Mishra, a 2011 batch -Meghalaya cadre officer, left the prestigious service earlier this year to realise the vision of prime minister through political interventions. But the BJP didn't give him the ticket. Instead the party decided to field Mithilesh Tiwari, who is considered an outsider as he belongs to Gopalganj.

Anand Mishra was a popular cop on social and has great fan following. Even during service, he had shown his political intent and was inclined towards BJP and inspired by Modi. People were speculating that BJP will replace the sitting Buxar MP with Mishra.

Dubbed as Assam's Singham, Anand Mishra was the part of Special Investigation Team, which was probing the ethnic violence that had erupted in Manipur last year. But Mishra resigned in between to pursue his interest in social service and politics.

What Anand Mishra can do next?

Anand Mishra is little perturbed for not getting ticket from BJP. He had left IPS to enter politics. Now that BJP has decided to field someone else, Mishra may think of contesting election as an independent candidate. On the occasion of Holi, Mishra said that he has come back to home to serve his people and he was not in mood to go back. “I will do whatever people say. If they will ask me to contest I will contest. I had left IPS to realise vision of PM Modi,” he said.

if Anand Mishra decides to contest as an independent, things will turn interesting in Buxar – a seat that Ashwini Choubey had been winning for BJP for the last two elections.
