Before Deciding on Seat Sharing in Bihar, Lalu Yadav Fields Kumar Sarvjeet from Gaya Against Manjhi

Lalu also plans to field Abhay Kushwaha from Aurangabad itself
Uneasiness in Congress due to the RJD’s effort on two seats

Patna: No definitive agreement has been reached on seat sharing among the Grand Alliance partners in Bihar. The number of seats remains a source of contention between Congress and the RJD. Meanwhile, RJD president Lalu Yadav has chosen MLA Kumar Sarvjeet as his party’s candidate from Gaya. Former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi is expected to run as an NDA contender in Gaya. Sarvjeet will now take against Manjhi in the Lok Sabha elections.

Along with Lalu Yadav, the Leader of the Opposition Tejashwi Yadav and former JDU MLA Abhay Kushwaha were also seen together. It is thought that the RJD may nominate Abhay Kushwaha from Aurangabad. Lalu Yadav also gave Abhay Kushwaha RJD membership on this occasion.

RJD leader Lalu Yadav personally granted the party symbol. In such a situation, there was a lot of anxiety in the Congress party after the symbol was provided without an announcement of seat. Akhilesh Singh, the state party president, became agitated and hastened to visit Lalu today. According to Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi’s instructions, Akhilesh Singh contacted Lal Yadav with a message from the Congress’ senior leadership.

It has been argued that it is not appropriate for the RJD to declare candidates prior to the official declaration of seat sharing in the INDIA alliance, and that it is not appropriate to announce it officially after receiving agreement from all of the Grand Alliance parties. Although no official statement has been made, Akhilesh Singh contacted Lalu Yadav to discuss the next strategy and the future of the Grand Alliance in Bihar. It is unclear how much attention Lalu Prasad will pay to Congress’s plea.
