LJP sources said the meeting was also asked to consider the proposal of the party’s Bihar unit. The LJP’s Bihar unit has suggested contesting 143 seats in the 243-member state assembly. In another suggestion, the party has been asked to field a candidate against the NDA’s main partner JDU.
According to party sources, the JD (U) is working to insult the LJP. He cited the ruling party’s decision to join hands with Dalit leader Jitan Ram Manji, who has a history of targeting the LJP. The base of the LJP is basically the Dalit class.
The attack on the JDU slowed Chirag
On the other hand, Chirag Paswan, national president of the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), which has been attacking Janata Dal United (JDU) and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, has softened. Chirag said last Saturday that he had no differences with JDU and Nitish Kumar. All the issues that I have raised as a people’s representative have been brought to the notice of my Chief Minister.
Chirag further said that no LJP leader has talked about seat-sharing with the BJP or the JDU. The LJP national president said there was no fight for the seat. We are with the BJP. The BJP has said that it will contest the elections under the leadership of Nitish Kumar. The LJP has been with the BJP decision from the beginning and will continue to do so. He said that whatever happens in the upcoming elections will be in the interest of Bihar.
