Bihar Assembly Elections 2020: Chiefs of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) LJP chief Chirag Paswan (Chirag Paswan) has requested BJP President JP Nadda that the saffron party should field its candidate for one more seat from Janata Dal United (JD-U) in the upcoming Bihar assembly elections. On Wednesday, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was criticized in a meeting of LJP leaders. Sources in the LJP said that Paswan met Nadda on Tuesday and suggested to him that the BJP should contest one seat more than the Nitish-led JD (U). The BJP, JD (U) and LJP are the constituents of the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the state and negotiations are on for seat sharing between these parties for the 243-member assembly elections.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, JDU and BJP contested 2019 Lok Sabha elections in 17-17 seats while the remaining six seats were left for LJP. JDU believes that it should get more seats from BJP to contest assembly elections as it has more MLAs than saffron party. However, the BJP has not made any official comment on its possible share of seats.
What is the significance of Nitish Kumar and rising rivalry in Chirag before elections in Bihar?
It is worth noting that the verbal war between LJP and JDU is going on at this time and Chirag Paswan has often targeted the working style of Nitish-led Bihar government. Nitish's rule was severely criticized in the LJP leaders' meeting held on Wednesday, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi was praised for presenting several development projects for the state. Some leaders even said that the party should contest against JDU in the upcoming elections. Sources said the LJP also criticized the Bihar government's methods of dealing with flood situation, corona virus epidemic and migrant crisis.
