Days after Upendra Kushwaha's Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (RLSP) walked out of the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA), another Bihar ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has raised an alarm. Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) party chief Ram Vilas Paswan's son Chirag Paswan has tweeted to say that a solution is urgently needed before 'it's too late'.
In a series of tweets in Hindi, Chirag, who represents Bihar's Jamui constituency in Lok Sabha, pointed out that NDA is going through a sensitive phase after the exit of RLSP and Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party (TDP).
"After the exit of TDP and RLSP, the NDA is going through a sensitive phase. The BJP should act on the issues of other allies and resolve them in a respectful manner before it’s too late," Chirag said on the microblogging site.
Chirag, while referring to the seat sharing between the BJP and allies, said that despite meetings with BJP leaders nothing concrete has emerged so far.
गठबंधन की सीटों को लेकर कई बार भारतीय जनता पार्टी के नेताओ से मुलाक़ात हुई परंतु अभी तक कुछ ठोस बात आगे नहीं बढ़ पायी है।इस विषय पर समय रहते बात नहीं बनी तो इससे नुक़सान भी हो सकता है।— Chirag Paswan (@ichiragpaswan) December 18, 2018
“No headway has been made on seat-sharing despite a number of meetings with leaders of the BJP. If things are not settled in time, it could prove to be damaging”, the LJP leader, whose father Ram Vilas Paswan is a member of the Union cabinet, said in another tweet.
The LJP, which was previously with the Congress-led UPA, had joined the NDA ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and won six out of the seven seats it had contested. The party also got a ministerial berth in the state government when Nitish Kumar returned to the NDA last year.
Notably, Chirag Paswan had also expressed disapproval of raising issues like the Ayodhya Ram temple in elections after the BJP lost power in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
