LJP is not with JDU in Bihar elections
BJP has directed not to use its flag

Patna: After RAM VILAS, is a million dollar question raised during ongoing
Bihar Assembly elections. Flashback to October 31, 1984. Mrs. Indira Gandhi,
then Prime Minister was assassinated by her bodyguards at her official residence.
Rajiv Gandhi, the elder son was sworn in as Prime Minister after her death.
General Parliamentary Elections were held in December 1984. Indian National
Congress under Rajiv Gandhi won historic landslide victory by getting total 414
seats out of 542 Parliamentary seats. Untimely and brutal death of Indira Gandhi
tilted the electorate in favour of Rajiv Gandhi and he could win so many seats due
to sympathy quotient. Switch on to today. Ram Vilas Paswan, Cabinet Minister in
Narendra Modi led government and founder of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) died
after prolonged illness on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at Delhi. Chirag Paswan his
son and recently nominated as Party President was beside him at the time of his
death. Bihar Assembly Elections 2020 are round the corner. List of candidates of
all parties contesting forthcoming election is final. LJP last week announced that
it will not partner with Nitish Kumar led Janta Dal United (JDU) and will contest
all seats on its own, though will support Prime Minister Narenra Modi. Whether
Ram Vilas Paswan aka “Political Weatherman” before breathing his last decided
to go solo by severing ties with JDU in ensuing elections? If the answer of it is
yes and taking into consideration his all past political moves, it would be quite
interesting to watch LJP performance in this election.
After Ram Vilas sympathy vote will help Chirag
The psyche of people in Bihar, death of Ram Vilas Paswan would definitely
generate sympathy factor in favour of Chirag Paswan and LJP as was the case
with Rajiv Gandhi though it is out of question that Chirag would get landslide
victory but it is sure that Ram Vilas death would definitely make an impact on
polling. Dalits which constitutes about 17% of population may now rally behind
Chirag Paswan since Ram Vilas was one of the towering Dalit leader as of now.
The party may also encash the date of death of Ram Vilas which coincides with
Jai Prakash Narain, who led the great movement against Indira Gandhi in 1974
