“If Required, May Seek Support From LJP”: Tejashwi Yadav Fans Speculations

After both have vowed that they won’t allow Nitish to become Chief Minister again, LJP’s Chirag Paswan and RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav are somewhat on the same page. 

Tejashwi Yadav, the RJD leader and CM candidate of Mahagathbandhan in Bihar polls, stunned everyone on Monday when he will not shy away in seeking support from the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) if the RJD-led Grand Alliance was short of a majority, Hindustan Times reported.

Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD will be contesting the polls on 144 seats, whereas the Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP, has fielded its candidates on 143 seats, mostly against the JD (U) nominees.

After both have vowed that they won’t allow Nitish to become Chief Minister again, LJP’s Chirag Paswan and RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav are somewhat on the same page.

“One thing is certain. Nitish won’t be Chief Minister of Bihar again after results are declared on November 10,” Chirag Paswan reiterated his vow on Monday.

While addressing a rally in Jamui, the Lok Sabha constituency of Chirag, Tejashwi Yadav said: “If required, we will seek the support of the LJP during government formation.”

Recently, Tejashwi Yadav has been going soft on Chirag Paswan. On Monday, the RJD leader slammed Nitish for showing ‘disregard’ towards Chirag’s father late Ram Vilas Paswan “at a time when Chirag needed his father the most.”

The speculations of a secret agreement between the two started earlier this month when Chirag Paswan termed Lalu’s younger son as his ‘Chota Bhai’ (younger brother).

Despite Paswan’s attempts to use PM Modi’s name, calling himself the Hanuman of Prime Minister, Paswan’s s relationship with the Bihar BJP leaders have soured. BJP leaders pledged their support to Nitish Kumar and said: “Nitish was the NDA chief ministerial nominee and anyone, who disagrees, may be free to leave the NDA.”
