CM Nitish Kumar and RJD President Lalu Yadav Discuss Division of Lok Sabha Seats in Bihar
Patna – Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD President Lalu Yadav recently engaged in a crucial discussion regarding the division of Lok Sabha seats in Bihar. The high-level meeting took place at the official residence of Nitish Kumar. This meeting holds significant importance as it lays the groundwork for strategic alliances and seat-sharing arrangements ahead of the upcoming elections.
A Unilateral Announcement Poses a Challenge
A unilateral announcement made by the state Congress leadership, stating their intention to contest in 10 seats in Bihar, has sent shockwaves through the political landscape. This development has become a source of concern for their allies, including the RJD and JD(U) parties.
Prior to this announcement, the RJD and JD(U) had already reached an agreement regarding the seat distribution. A proportional arrangement was decided, whereby each party would contest in 15 seats out of the total 40 seats in Bihar. Furthermore, the Congress and Left parties were to be allocated 10 seats for their respective campaigns.
However, the sudden decision by the Congress leadership to vie for 10 seats has created a sense of ambiguity regarding the seat allocation for the Left parties. In light of these circumstances, CPM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury and CPI General Secretary D. Raja paid a visit to Lalu Yadav, urging him to intervene and resolve this challenging situation.
The Left parties, including the CPI (ML), CPM, and CPI, form a crucial part of the alliance. Their inclusion in the seat-sharing arrangement further emphasizes the need for a fair and balanced division.
Seeking a Resolution
With the current developments demanding swift action, it is anticipated that Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav will approach the Congress leaders with the aim of finding a compromise on seat sharing. Such a move would serve to mitigate any potential conflicts and maintain a harmonious coalition in Bihar.
The forthcoming discussions among these key political figures will shape the distribution of Lok Sabha seats in Bihar, paving the way for a united effort in the upcoming elections.
Patna – Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD President Lalu Yadav held a discussion on the division of ‘India’ front seats in Bihar in the Lok Sabha elections. The meeting was held at the official residence of Nitish Kumar.
The unilateral announcement by the state Congress leadership that it will contest in 10 seats in Bihar has become a headache for its allies. Earlier, the RJD and JD(U) parties had reached an agreement that out of 40 seats in Bihar, the JD(U) and RJD parties should fight in 15 seats each and the Congress and Left parties with each other in 10 seats. With the Congress leadership announcing that it will fight in 10 seats, the result has become uncertain regarding the seats of the Left parties. Following this, CPM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury and CPI General Secretary D. Raja visited Lalu Yadav and asked him to intervene in the seat division. Among the left parties, the CPI (ML) is also in the alliance as well as CPM and CPI parties. There are indications that Nitish and Lalu will ask Congress leaders to compromise on seat sharing.
