  • Rakesh agarwal

Patna: LJP has made its decision public.In an interesting and far reaching

consequences today at Delhi Lok Janshakti party (LJP) has decided to sever off

partnership with JDU. Central Parliamentary Board meeting of LJP decided that it

will not contest forthcoming Bihar Assembly Election under leadership of Nitish

Kumar though it will align BJP. LJP will field its candidates on every seat where

JDU will contest. Party President Chirag Paswan said that it may also go for some

friendly fights with BJP. A resolution was passed to continue its support to Prime

Minister Narendra Modi. Post election, it may form the government with BJP if

required. Abdul Khaliq, Principal General Secretary of LJP said that JDU is

responsible for rift in alliance. It has decided to go solo in election due to

ideological differences with JDU. We wanted to implement our vision document

of “Bihar First, Bihari First” but it could not be finalized within given time frame

hence we had no option except to sever off our relations with JDU. He further

said that we have strong alliance with BJP and we will form next government

with them. The seat sharing within NDA is not yet clear. Since LJP is now

contesting separately, BJP and JDU may now share 119 seats each and rest 5 seats

will be given to Jitan Ram Manjhi party Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM),

sources revealed.

LJP Stand gives BJP more bargain power

It is learnt that BJP is also changing its stand regarding sharing of seats with JDU.

Sources from inside indicated that BJP is now demanding more seats as tume of

Loksabha Election. In the parliamentary election, JDU has allowed BJP to contest

on more seats. Now BJP is demanding that same formula should be implemented

in forthcoming assemble elections also. A High level meeting of BJP leaders

iscontinuing to discuss their demand and JDU’s seat sharing formula. It is very

much clear that after LJP made its stand, BJP has the chance to bargain more with

the cornered JDU.
