Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) president Chirag Paswan on Wednesday said that the seat-sharing agreement with the BJP in Bihar for the Lok Sabha elections has been finalised and a formal announcement will be made soon.

Paswan, who represents the Jamui Lok Sabha seat, thanked BJP leaders after the seat-sharing agreement was finalised.

“As a member of the NDA, today in a meeting with BJP National President Hon Shri @jpnadda ji, we have together finalised the seat sharing in Bihar for the ensuing Lok Sabha polls. The same will be announced in due course,” Paswan posted on X.

Paswan told reporters that NDA will make efforts to win all 40 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar.

“I want to thank PM Modi for always protecting me in the alliance. He always treated Ram Vilas Paswan as his friend. Today, again we have strengthened our alliance NDA. Today, after the seat-sharing has been done for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, I want to thank BJP national president JP Nadda and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. LJP will fight the elections with the intention that all the 40 seats in Bihar should be won by the NDA alliance and achieve the target of 400 seats in the country,” he said.

Chirag Paswan and his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras, who is a union minister, have been claiming the Hajipur seat.

Pashupati Kumar Paras had founded Rashtriya Lok Janshakti Party after splitting with Chirag Paswan. Paras is MP from Hajipur, a traditional LJP seat that Ram Vilas Paswan won many times.

Meanwhile earlier, Paswan had asserted that his alliance was only with the people of Bihar.

Addressing a rally in Sahebganj block in Vaishali Lok Sabha constituency, he said: “I have an alliance only with the people of Bihar and if anyone is thinking that he would bend or break me, then he is living in misconception. Chirag Paswan is the son of a lion. He will not bend or break before anyone.”

“I have no desire for power at present or in future. I have an alliance only with the people of Bihar. Besides them, I have no other commitment,” he said.

Chirag Paswan also attacked the current state government, saying that the state was not robbed by one party but several parties had looted it in the past.

“Many governments came to Bihar but its status did not improve. In fact, It is heading towards ruination. Now, the election is coming and leaders will come before the people of Bihar. I want to appeal to people to ask questions about the promises they made in the previous election. The public should identify those leaders who have not fulfilled the promises,” he said.

After the rally, Chirag Paswan returned to Patna and went to Delhi. Interacting with media persons at Patna airport, he said that seat-sharing will be finalised soon. “Our discussion on the number of seats and constituencies has already been completed. It is a matter of time before we announce it jointly,” he said. (ANI)
