Situationship — a term popular among Gen Z, resonates starkly with politics and its strings attached to ‘bahubalis’ (strongmen). Known for complex caste arithmetics, Bihar has for decades voted for several bahubalis who usually, with the support of people of their caste, secured electoral victories with ease. In the ongoing Lok Sabha polls, two strongmen who have also become a talking point are Mokama’s Anant Kumar Singh and ‘bahubali’ Anand Mohan Singh.
