20 May, New Delhi
Union Minister and LJP Chief Ram Vilas Paswan Wednesday said his party will back BJP’s choice of chief ministerial candidate in the upcoming Bihar assembly polls.
Talking to reporters in New Delhi, Paswan said the NDA is ready for polls in the state and it will get two third majority as the RJD and JDU have lost their mass base. He also took a dig at the hurdle in final merger of Janata Parivar parties saying they will not even be able to form an alliance for the upcoming assembly elections.
Paswan termed the merger move as a flop show, pointing out that the President of the new party had been announced but still no clarity about name, flag, symbol and other issues of new party.
Last month, six parties of erstwhile Janata Parivar including Samajawdi Party, JD(U), RJD and JD(S) had formed a new Political group by announcing Mulayam Singh Yadav as its chief.
Terming the Land Acquisition Bill, over which LJP had expressed reservations earlier, Paswan said it would be beneficial for farmers.
