On the Lok Sabha elections, the seat-sharing of the constituencies of the Maha coalition in Bihar was to be announced only after Makar Sankranti, but it has been postponed once again. It is believed that the decision on sharing of seats will be done only after the first week of February. The immediate reason for this is the rally of Congress supremo Rahul Gandhi held in Patna on February 3.
Seat Sharing in Not Easy in a grand alliance
It is known that in the Grand Alliance, Congress has demanded seats equal to the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD). The problem with RJD is that he has to take along with all the small parties and leaders like Hindustani Awami Morcha (we) Supremo Jitan Ram Manjhi and National Lok Samata Party (RLOSPA) Supremo Upendra Kushwaha along with Sharad Yadav and Mukesh Sahni. There is also a problem of adjusting the leaders like Shatrughan Sinha and Kirti Azad, who are dissatisfied with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). In such a situation, sharing of seats in the Maha coalition does not seem easy.
Congress wants to announce seat sharing after Rahul’s rally.
Sources reveal that the Congress has urged in the General Body that party leaders are busy organizing Rahul’s rally so any announcement of seat sharing can be done only after the rally. RJD has justified the Congress’s request in principle, justifying the Congress’s plea.
The eyes of all the parties on the likely ones
Congress wants to take as many seats as possible for itself, but it is aware of the maximum number of constituent parties and a limited number of seats in the alliance. Sources reveal that in view of this, Congress is focusing on seats that are likely to win more than the seats. The eyes of other parties, including the RJD, are also on the likely seats.
The leader of the Alliance refuses to dispute
Regarding the split of seats, RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav’s son, Tejashvi Yadav, says there is no problem. RJD’s National Vice President Raghuvansh Prasad Singh also makes the remark. Rolospa Supremo Upendra Kushwaha says there is no difference between the general body and seat sharing is not a problem. According to them, the Maha coalition will win the Lok Sabha elections. ‘Hum’ Supremo Jitranram Manjhi says this also.
NDA leaders say: There are only screws in mahaghatbandhan
On the other hand, the leaders of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) are talking about the screw in the grand coalition. According to him, the reason for avoiding the decision of seat sharing is a difference. Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) Supremo Ram Vilas Paswan says that there is a cleft gap in the coalition.
Congress rally in Patna after two decades
Nonetheless, the split of seats in the Maha coalition has been postponed till Congress supremo Rahul Gandhi’s rally between the speculations and statements. A rally of Congress is going on in Patna’s Gandhi Maidan about two decades later. RJD leader Tejasvi Yadav will also attend Rahul’s rally. At present, all the attention of the Congress is on making it successful.
