"Yes, I have resigned from the LJP in protest," Anwar said.

He said there was no moral ground for him to continue with the LJP after the party said the option for alliance with the BJP was open.

Anwar is legislator from the Araria assembly constituency and was keen on contesting the Lok Sabha polls.

"LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan's closeness to the BJP and its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi shocked and surprised me because Paswan was not missing a chance to target both for communal politics," he said.
