Watch: After Maharashtra, alliance trouble for BJP in Jharkhand before polls
After Maharashtra, Bharatiya Janata Party is facing alliance trouble in poll-bound Jharkhand. The All Jharkhand Students’ Union party is haggling with the BJP over seat-sharing agreement for the upcoming elections. The former has already fielded candidates in 3 seats where the BJP had announced its candidates. This follows decisions by the Lok Janshakti Party and Janata Dal (United) to contest the Jharkhand Assembly Election on their own. LJP chief Ramvilas Paswan is currently a Union Minister and the three parties are part of the ruling coalition in Bihar which is led by JD(U)’s Nitish Kumar. JD(U) leader KC Tyagi blamed ‘BJP attitude’ for the decision by the allies.
