political quake in bihar and story of chirag paswan

Pashupati Kumar Paras left his nephew Chirag Paswan waiting at his door. Soon after Paras addressed the media, Paswan went to his uncle’s residence in the national capital.

Ground Report | New Delhi: The politics in Bihar has been in turmoil ever since the BJP lost the elections in West Bengal. Five Lok Sabha MPs of the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) rebelled against party chief Chirag Paswan and wrote to the speaker to identify them as a separate group. For Chirag Paswan in Bihar, all of a sudden the math has changed.

Chirag Paswan rarely thought that the party and power inherited from his father could be so easily taken away from him. But the truth is that all this has happened. Along with Bihar, Chirag, who has created the image of a youth leader across the country, is now fighting a political storm.


But in the midst of all this, after this big split in LJP, now the lamp has been offered to keep burning under the shadow of a lantern. According to the information, Chirag Paswan has been offered by Lalu Yadav’s party Rashtriya Janata Dal. It has been said on behalf of Lalu Yadav’s party that Chirag Paswan should not panic and come with us.



What happened in Bihar after all?

There has been a big break in the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) of the late Ram Vilas Paswan. The party’s five MPs- Pashupati Kumar Paras, Chaudhary Mehboob Ali Kaiser, Veena Devi, Chandan Singh, and Prince Raj together have removed National President Chirag Paswan from all posts. Also, Chirag’s uncle Pashupati Kumar has chosen Paras as his leader. He has also been entrusted with the responsibility of the leader of the parliamentary party along with the national president. There were only six MPs in LJP including Chirag.


LJP MPs have written a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla demanding that Pashupati Kumar Paras should now be considered the leader of the parliamentary party. At present, Chirag Paswan, son of late leader Ram Vilas Paswan, is the leader of the LJP Parliamentary Party.


Chirag Paswan’s uncle and Hajipur Lok Sabha constituency MP Pashupati Kumar Paras is said to be behind the mutiny. He was upset that Chirag Paswan was acting arbitrarily and was in touch with the JD (U) MP. These MPs have written a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla revolting against Chirag Paswan. ‘We should be considered a separate group,’ the MP said in the letter.


Why is this happening with Chirag?

The major reason for the break-in LJP was the displeasure of his loved ones with Chirag. Others took advantage of this and 3 strong leaders of JDU played an important role in breaking the LJP. These include MP Rajiv Ranjan alias Lalan Singh and Deputy Speaker Maheshwar Hazari. The name of the third has not been revealed. It is being told that at present these three leaders are present in Delhi and are keeping an eye on all the LJP MPs.

JDU MP Lalan Singh was leading this entire mission. Lalan first made Pashupati Paras in his favor and then along with Surajbhan Singh got him also in favor. After this Maheshwar Hazari broke Mehboob Ali Kaiser and then also forced Prince Raj and Veena Singh to leave Chirag’s side.

What is RJD’s offer

According to the information, RJD has given an open offer to Chirag Paswan. It has been said on behalf of Lalu Yadav’s party that still Chirag should not be worried too much. Chirag has been told that he should come with us and give a proper answer to the deceit and propaganda of NDA. It has been said from RJD that if two young faces Chirag Paswan and Tejashwi Yadav come together in the politics of Bihar, then in the coming times, the political condition and direction of Bihar will definitely change.


Chirag Paswan left ’embarrassed’

Pashupati Kumar Paras left his nephew Chirag Paswan waiting at his door. Soon after Paras addressed the media, Paswan went to his uncle’s residence in the national capital.

However, they were not allowed inside. When the guard opened the door after waiting for about 30 minutes, Chirag could not meet his uncle as Paras had reportedly left by then. After waiting at the residence for about 25 minutes, Chirag got angry and left Paras’ house.

BJP’s reaction

Bihar BJP spokesperson Prem Ranjan Patel said on Monday that Chirag Paswan blames no one but himself for his separation. He said the decisions taken by Paswan Jr after the death of his father Ram Vilas Paswan and before the Bihar assembly elections last year are responsible for his present condition.

Patel said that Chirag took the decisions alone without taking his party members and workers into confidence, leading to their separation. He said the decisions also hurt the collective morale of the party, which could win only one seat in the Bihar elections late last year.

The Grand Alliance, on the other hand, benefited from Chirag’s political efforts such as contesting the Bihar elections alone and attacking Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) for the election.
