The Sangathan is a political outfit of the outlawed Ranvir Sena that was founded by Brahmeshwar Singh.

Indu Bhusan is eyeing the support of farmers, particularly of his caste men - landed upper caste Bhumihars who are considered pro-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Indu Bhusan's supporters are also hopeful of getting the support of upper caste Rajputs in his rural constituency.

He unsuccessfully contested the Patliputra parliamentary constituency in 2014 general elections.

Brahmeshwar Singh too contested the 2004 Lok Sabha polls as an Independent from Arrah but was defeated.
