The Bahujan Azad Party has planned to solve the rights of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes which they feel are not given the right privileges. These privileges include education and employment.
The total group includes 50 alumni from the esteemed Indian Institute of Technology (IITs). They have quit their jobs and are looking at bettering the underprivileged lives.
The leader of the group, Naveen Kumar from the 2015 IIT-Delhi alumni said-
“We are a bunch of 50 people, all from different IITs, who have quit our full-time jobs to work for the party. We have applied to the Election Commission for an approval and are meanwhile doing ground work.”

However, what seems impressive is that they don’t want to gain just power as they are not even aiming for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. Instead, they want to voice a change!
“We do not wish to do a hurried job and end up being reduced to just one of those small political outfits with big ambitions. We will begin with contesting the 2020 Bihar assembly elections and then aim for the next Lok Sabha polls,” Naveen Kumar said.
The Indian political system has been stagnant in terms of ideas and growth. IIT-ians famous for the brightest kids will end up using their wits to change policies needed to reform India.
The future was discussed by the leader, Naveen Kumar who said-
“We will begin with contesting the 2020 Bihar Assembly elections and then aim for the next Lok Sabha polls.”
The 50-member group includes members from SC, ST and OBC communities and thus a better perspective of what needs to be changed will be gained from these members. First-hand experiences are always better than mere talks!
