LJP won’t contest Bihar assembly election under Nitish Kumar

'We have no issue with BJP. LJP will contest in all seats where JD(U) will put its candidates.' said Chirag Paswan's party through a statement


The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) today said it wouldn’t contest the Bihar assembly election under the leadership of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar because of “ideological differences”. The LJP proposed a separate with the BJP.

In the 2015 Bihar assembly election, none of the small parties that were allies of the BJP — Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP, Jitan Ram Manjhi’s HAM, Upendra Kushwaha’s RLSP — could make a mark.

According to a statement released by Paswan’s party, the LJP wants a -led government in Bihar just like the one at the centre.

An LJP parliamentary board meeting, which its president Chirag Paswan chaired, passed a resolution in favour of an with the BJP. It said its MLAs would work to strengthen the hand of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “At the national level and in Lok Sabha elections, LJP shares a strong alliance with the BJP,” LJP national general secretary Abdul Khaliq said.

“We have no issue with the BJP. LJP will contest in all seats where JD(U) will put its candidates,” the party said.

The development assumes significance, with less than a week to go before the end of the filing of nominations for the first of the three-phase election.

Yesterday, the opposition grand aka Mahagathbandhan had announced its seat-sharing pact under which the Tejashwi Yadav-led RJD would contest 144 of the 243 assembly seats while the Congress would fight 70 seats. The remaining 29 seats have been given to the three Left allies — CPM four, six and CPI (M-L) 19.

The Bihar assembly election is scheduled in three phases on 28 October, 3 November and 7 November. The counting of votes will take place on 10 November.

This meeting of the LJP was supposed to be held on 3 October. But it was postponed owing to the ill health of Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan. The minister was admitted to a hospital in Delhi where he underwent heart surgery earlier today.

The central election committee is meeting later in the evening to finalise the party’s candidates for the three-phase assembly election.

माननीय प्रधानमंत्री जी,

2018 में आपने कहा था कि कालाधन और बेनामी लेनदेन समाप्त करने के लिए आधार को संपत्ति से लिंक किया जाएगा

यदि 50,000₹ से अधिक लेनदेन पर आधार अनिवार्य करने के लिए कानून बन गया होता तो न शाहीन बाग होता, न दिल्ली दंगा और न किसान आंदोलन

@PMOIndia @narendramodi

गेस्ट हाउस कांड वालों के मुंह से दलितों के हित की बात अच्छी नहीं लगती

आप ही के अब्बाजान और उनके गुंडो ने मायावती जी पर हमला करवाया था ना ?

आपकी जानकारी हेतु प्रयागराज (इलाहाबाद नहीं) घटना पर पोलिस अपनी कार्यवाही तेजी से कर रही है । शायद यह दबंग भी आप ही के न हो ।

Akhilesh Yadav@yadavakhilesh

इलाहाबाद के फाफामऊ में दबंगों के द्वारा 4 दलितों की हत्या दलित विरोधी भाजपा सरकार पर एक और बदनुमा दाग़ है।

घोर निंदनीय!

उम्मीद है ये अपराधी बिना चश्मे के भी दिख जाएँगे…
