On Thursday, Bihar Congress campaign committee chairman Akhilesh Prasad Singh said the name of the candidates of the opposition “Mahagathbandhan” (Grand Alliance) for the 40 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar will be declared on Sunday.
However, the senior Congress leader did not mention how many seats are going to get the respective constituencies.
“Our talks were held in New Delhi. Top leaders of the Congress and alliance partners were present. RLSP chief Upendra Kushwaha and HAM president Jitan Ram Manjhi were there. Things are falling in place well. We will announce our candidates on March 17,” Mr. Singh told reporters.
There was news that Jitan Ram Manjhi was sore over not having a “respectable” share of seats which was the reason that he came back to the city a day before the schedule.
Akhilesh Prasad Singh has dismissed the reports. They both were in the same flight to reach Patna from Delhi.
Meanwhile, Mr. Singh has stated that “Nobody is angry. All have been taken on board and things are being settled amicably. All Grand Alliance constituents will fight as a team and we will win all the 40 seats in the state.”
“When the seats are announced, you will see for yourself that nobody has been left behind,” Mr. Singh added.
When the reporters asked Mr. Manjhi same question he replied with a smile that “There is no anger or dissatisfaction. We will work together to ensure the defeat of the BJP-led NDA.”
The son of Mr. Majhi, Santosh claimed, “(RCP) Singh is talking rubbish. Nobody is interested in returning to the NDA. The JD(U) leader was once considered number two in the party. Now he should worry about the diminution of his own stature following the entry of Prashant Kishor.”
