Lalu and Paswan had forged an alliance against the NDA led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar ahead of the 2010 assembly elections but their alliance could not get more than 25 seats in the 243-member assembly at the time.
Lok Janskahti Party’s embattled leader Chirag and RJD scion Tejashwi have declined to attach political significance to their previous meeting but it is being seen as a step closer to a possible alliance.
The notice has been issued to MP and LJP leader Chirag Paswan to evict the accommodation issued to his late father.
Chirag Paswan might have been ditched both by the BJP and the five MPs of his party at the moment, but the doors of immense possibilities in the future remain ajar for him in politics.
Shyam Rajak said that LJP leader Chirag Paswan has met RJD chief Lalu Prasad
After Pashupati Kumar Paras' overnight rebellion, Chirag visited his ancestral home at Shaharbanni village to seek the blessings of his stepmother, Raj Kumari Devi.
It is nothing short of a windfall for Paras, who may never have thought of joining the Modi govt until a month ago.
LJP leader Pashupati Kumar Paras had staged a coup within the party earlier, when he ousted his nephew Chirag Paswan from the post of LJP chief
Chirag Paswan said Paras or somebody else siding with him can be made a minister as an Independent, but not as a member of the LJP with which they are no longer associated.
Chirag Paswan is in Bihar to take part in an ‘aashirvaad yatra’ to mark the birth anniversary of his late father and party founder Ram Vilas Paswan.
Chirag’s announcement has come at a time when he seeks popular legitimacy in a battle with the rival faction headed by his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras for the party's ownership.
While LJP MP Pashupati Kumar Paras has announced a new national executive, ex-chief Chirag Paswan has claimed more than 90 percent of the national executive members are with him.
Even though Ram Vilas Paswan and Lalu Prasad Yadav fought with each other for a brief while for the railway portfolio in the UPA government, they otherwise shared a great rapport over the years.
The way LJP leader Pashupati Kumar Paras has dislodged Chirag Paswan, it is unlikely to endear him to the Dalit voters, who account for more than 15% of Bihar’s electorate
Pashupati Kumar Paras has staged a revolt against his nephew Chirag Paswan in a bid to take over the LJP
The Lok Sabha Secretariat Monday issued a revised list of floor leaders of parties in a notification in which Paras has been listed as the leader of Lok Janshakti Party.
Party MP Pashupati Kumar Paras, the younger brother of late Ram Vilas Paswan has led a revolt and ‘taken over’ the Lok Janshakti Party, leaving party president Chirag Paswan high and dry.
There has been no official comment from either Chirag Paswan, who has not been keeping well, or the rebel group so far.
