Statistics show that LJP has done a lot of damage to four seats, not just JDU but Mukesh Sahni’s party Vikasashil Insan Party (VIP) of NDA. Chirag’s stand from the beginning was that he would not fight against BJP in more seats, so he spoiled the game in only one seat of BJP. At the same time, it has also become clear that Chirag also damaged the Grand Alliance.
Election figures show that Chirag Paswan’s LJP lost 12 seats to RJD and 10 seats to Congress. CPI ML was also beaten on 2 seats. It is obvious that Chirag’s party spoiled the game of Grand Alliance in 24 seats. However, due to Chirag’s LJP, most of the grand alliance candidates won.
By cutting the votes of the LJP, the RJD won 24 seats and the Congress 6 seats. However, due to LJP, CM Nitish Kumar also won 20 seats. Jitan Ram Manjhi’s party Ham also won 2 seats and BJP and Vikas Insan Party won 1 seat. It is clear that the LJP lost 6 seats to the NDA (24 wins to 30 defeats) and the Grand Alliance gained 6 net seats (30 wins to 24 defeats). Data analysis shows that there were 54 such seats in this election where Chirag Paswan’s LJP was in third place, but the votes they got were more than the margin of victory. So if all the votes of the LJP would have been won by the second-placed party, then the course would have been reversed and the results would have been different.
Chirag Paswan is said to be a big voter, but this time there were 120 seats where the vote cutters played their game. While Chirag Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) spoiled the game in 54 of these vote cutters, Upendra Kushwaha’s Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) also spoiled the game of many. The RLSP itself could not win a single seat, but by creating a new front with the BSP and Owaisi’s AIMIM, it lost 10 seats of the NDA, of which 7 belonged to the BJP.
The fact is also that RLSP benefited RJD in 7 seats, winning Congress and CPI one seat each. Apart from this, there were 20 such seats where independents acted as vote cutters. The NDA gained 15 seats from 20 independents. This means that the grand alliance rebels did 3 times more damage than the NDA rebels.
