Patna, Sept.15 (ANI): Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan on Tuesday said there was no disappointment between the LJP and the NDA, and added that all they want is that the NDA should come into power in Bihar.
“There is no disappointment between any of us. We are part of one team,” Paswan told ANI.
“My party (LJP) has never made any kind of issue when it comes to seat-sharing. We always want that the NDA should come into power in Bihar. We are one family and sometimes there are differences among brothers,” he added.
(LJP) leader Chirag Paswan had earlier said the party was not upset with the 40 seats allotted to them for the Bihar Assembly polls, but slightly shocked and taken aback, as it was not the number of seats that was promised to them.
“There is no question of any strife within the party as LJP has never believed in numbers. Our goal is to ensure NDA Government’s victory in eradicating ‘jungle raj’ from Bihar, which is why the number does not matter,” said Chirag.
Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah on Monday announced that his party would contest on 160 seats while Jitan Ram Manjhi’s Hindustan Awam Morcha (HAM) would fight on 20 seats, thereby bringing an end to the ongoing tussle over seat-sharing for the Bihar Assembly polls.
Shah further announced that Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP would contest on 40 seats and the Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) would battle it out on 23 seats. (ANI)
