Chirag Paswan Issues Challenge to Uncle Pashupathi Paras in Ancestral Constituency

New Delhi : Chirag Paswan, a prominent leader within the Lok Janshakti Party, announced today his intention to contest the Hajipur constituency in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, thereby challenging his uncle, Pashupati Kumar Paras.
“I am firmly committed to representing the Lok Janshakti Party(R) and the NDA as their candidate from Hajipur, a constituency deeply associated with legacy of my father. While my uncle, Pashupati Kumar Paras, is welcome to contest from there, I have consistently faced and overcome various challenges throughout my career. I approach this challenge with the same determination,” stated Mr. Paswan during a media briefing on Wednesday.

Mr. Paswan underscored the multifaceted nature of his decision, emphasizing its familial significance alongside its political implications. He remarked, “This decision holds not only political weight for me but also familial considerations. Such determinations should reflect not only the interests of political parties but also the sentiments of all family members. Previously, the decision to part ways from the family was solely his (Pashupathi Paras’) prerogative, and it remains so.”

In preparation for the upcoming elections, the Lok Janshakti Party convened a parliamentary meeting under the guidance of its Chief, Chirag Paswan.

“After the central Parliamentary Board convenes, we will proceed to Bihar. Several pivotal proposals require endorsement, and numerous consequential decisions necessitate deliberation,” articulated Mr. Paswan in an earlier media statement.

When pressed for details regarding his party’s candidate roster for the Lok Sabha elections, Mr. Paswan assured that it would be disclosed imminently.

“Nomination filings are underway for the initial phase of elections, and the comprehensive list of LJP candidates will be unveiled shortly,” he assured.

On Tuesday, Pashupati Kumar Paras, President of the Rashtriya Lok Janshakti Party (RLJP), tendered his resignation as Union Minister, following his party’s exclusion from the Bihar Lok Sabha elections.

Earlier in the week, the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) unveiled its seat-sharing arrangement for Bihar’s Lok Sabha polls, with the BJP and JD-(U) slated to contest 17 and 16 seats, respectively. The Hindustani Aawam Morcha (HAM) led by Jitan Ram Manjhi and the Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (RLSP) will contest one seat each, while the Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) will vie for five seats.
