‘Unemployed’ Kanhaiya Kumar had a cumulative income of Rs 8,58,650 in last two years

Kanhaiya Kumar is Communist Party of India (CPI) candidate for the Lok Sabha elections from Begusarai

Former JNU student and Communist Party of India’s Kanhaiya Kumar filed his nomination for the Begusarai Lok Sabha constituency a few days back. In his affidavit [pdf] filed with the election commission disclosing the details about his income, assets and employment details, Kanhaiya has disclosed that he is ‘unemployed’.

Kanhaiya’s income as per the affidavit filed.

In his affidavit, has mentioned that he is ‘berojgar’ (unemployed) and earns his living through ‘independent writing’. He says his source of income is the royalty he earns out of his book, “Bihar to Tihar”.

Through his ‘unemployment’ and ‘royalty from sale of books’, Kanhaiya has earned as much as Rs 8,58,650 in last two years.

Kanhaiya Kumar’s ‘income’

Kanhaiya has claimed he earned Rs 6,30,360 in 2017-18 and Rs 2,28,290 in the year 2018-19.

Unfortunately, despite earning over 8 lakh rupees as unemployed youth, Kanhaiya Kumar is unable to afford LPG cylinders for cooking at home because the cylinder which would usually last about 30 odd days in a home gets over within 3-4 days in Kanhaiya Kumar’s place.

One wonders if Kanhaiya Kumar knows that there is a provision to turn off the knob of the stove once you’re done with cooking so that the cylinder could last longer than 3-4 days?

Other than this, Kanhaiya has disclosed cash in hand Rs 24,000, cash in bank Rs 1,63, 648 and Rs 50 and insurance policy of Rs 1,70,150. He has also disclosed a house in Begusarai which has market value of Rs 2 lakh.

Kanhaiya Kumar, the member of the infamous ‘Tukde Tukde Gang’ is currently on bail for allegedly chanting anti-national slogans at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi in 2016. The Delhi Police Special Cell had submitted 1200-page charge-sheet in January this year against Kanhaiya Kumar and other left-wing students of the JNU.

Kanhaiya Kumar was supposed to be the Mahagathbandhan candidate from Begusarai. However, the alliance of RJD and Congress did not leave any seats to the CPI and CPI-M. The Begusarai seat is now being contested by an RJD candidate against Union Minister Giriraj Singh, who has shifted his constituency from Nawada to Begusarai.

Interestingly, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav is reportedly averse to any idea of promoting Kanhaiya Kumar as it may affect his political advancement in the future. As Kanhaiya Kumar has more political acumen and oratory skills than Tejashwi Yadav, the latter fears that he may one day outshine him in the state politics. Hence, Yadav has been conscious of his decision to not promote Kanhaiya Kumar in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
