- Deal final in BJP-JDU on seat sharing in Bihar elections
- Important meeting held on Saturday, seat sharing may be announced today
- LJP chief Chirag Paswan’s final decision is awaited
- A tweet by Chirag Paswan indicated the LJP to walk a different path
The seat-sharing has been announced by the Grand Alliance in Bihar elections. In such a situation, everyone is now waiting for the seat sharing formula of the ruling NDA. According to the information, the suspense about the LJP included in the NDA is deepening. This is because almost the seat sharing deal in BJP and JDU has become final. According to sources, the screw was getting stuck in some seats, which was resolved at the important meeting of party leaders of both parties held in Patna on Saturday evening. It is believed that there may be a big announcement on seat sharing by Sunday evening. With this, another thing has become clear that Nitish Kumar’s position in the agreement between BJP-JDU will no longer be that of ‘elder brother’.
50-50 agreement agreed on in BJP-JDU
Sources are telling that after taking a different route from LJP, seat sharing has been agreed in JDU and BJP in the ratio of 50:50. It is also expected that BJP may give up seats for the 5 sitting MLAs from RJD to JDU. However, BJP may have some difficulty in agreeing to this new demand as in such a situation it will have to cut its seats. This is exactly the same as Nitish Kumar had to give up the seats of his five MPs in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. At that time the party had got 17 seats.
