Manish Kashyap, a prominent YouTube personality from Bihar, officially joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today in the presence of BJP leaders Manoj Tiwari and Anil Baluni, around 11 AM. Manish Kashyap, a renowned YouTuber from Bihar, arrived in Delhi along with BJP leader Manoj Tiwari.

Shift in electoral plans

Previously, Kashyap had announced his intention to contest the Lok Sabha elections from the West Champaran constituency. However, he has now decided against contesting the elections.

Potential BJP candidacy

While initially positioning himself as an independent candidate against BJP’s Sanjay Jaiswal in West Champaran, Kashyap’s potential affiliation with BJP is now under scrutiny. There’s speculation that he might be offered a significant responsibility or even a ticket as a Member of the Legislative Council (MLC) within the party.

Legal tussle

Kashyap faced legal troubles when he was arrested by the police in a case related to the circulation of fake viral videos. He spent around 9 months in jail before his release. Despite this, he maintains a strong presence on YouTube with approximately 8.75 million subscribers, focusing on various social issues in Bihar for years.
