PATNA: The ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) looks to be heading for new trouble.
After Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP), now Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) headed by another federal minister Ram Vilas Paswan has served a strong warning to the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership.
“Don’t try to underestimate the LJP. It has the huge support base,” state LJP president Pashupati Kumar Paras told the media on Tuesday.
Paras who is the younger brother of LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan claimed his party had the huge support base in Bihar.
“LJP ko koi chhota dal na samajhe, LJP ke pas sabse jyada vote hai” Paras claimed, describing his elder brother as the “second Ambedkar” of India.
The remarks come close on the heels of the RLSP threatening to walk out of the NDA if it was not given “respectable” treatment.
“We will announce our decision after the seats were allotted to us,” RLSP’s national acting president Nagmani said on Tuesday.
He predicted disastrous performance of the NDA in the upcoming polls if other NDA partners were not given proper treatment in matter of seat allocation.
The BJP and the JD-U of Nitish Kumar have announced to contest equal number of seats in next 2019 LS polls.
It is being speculated in the media that the LJP and RLSP will be spared only four and two seats respectively while the BJP and JD-U have planned to contest on 17-17 seats each.
