RJD LJP finalise poll pact

After a gap of 13 years, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav is back as a chief ministerial candidate, with the RJD-LJP alliance on Monday making public their seat adjustment for this year’s Bihar Assembly elections.

As per the seat adjustment announced jointly by Mr Yadav and Mr Ram Vilas Paswan on Monday, the RJD will contest a total of 168 seats, while the LJP will get 75 constituencies. While the two leaders asserted that their alliance is rock solid, Mr Paswan apparently succeeded in getting a good deal by getting his younger brother and state LJP chief Pashupati Kumar Paras as the candidate of the post of deputy chief minister.
