LJP (Ram Vilas) to win both seats in Bihar byelection: Chirag Paswan | Patna News

PATNA: Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) chief and Jamui MP Chirag Paswan on Tuesday claimed his party would bag both the Kusheshwar Asthan and Tarapur assembly seats in the byelection scheduled to be held on October 30.
Talking to mediapersons at the Patna airport after his arrival from New Delhi, Chirag said he would camp in the two constituencies along with senior party functionaries after the Dussehra festival.
“Currently we are busy in the formation of panchayat level committees of the party for the byelection. We are hopeful of our victory in both the seats, which were earlier held by the JD(U),” Chirag said, adding the JD(U) would be placed third or fourth this time.
The LJP (RV) has fielded Anju Devi and Chandan Singh from from Kusheshwar Asthan and Tarapur assembly constituencies, respectively.
Chirag also criticised CM Nitish Kumar for “not paying heed to the demands related to LJP’s founder and Dalit patriarch late Ram Vilas Paswan. “The CM has not fulfilled any of the promises he had made as mark of respect to the departed leader,” he alleged.
In an oblique reference to his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras, who is now part of the ruling NDA at the centre, the Jamui MP said, “It is up to him to decide what action he would initiate when the leader, whom he often described as ‘Bhagwan’ (God), is not getting what he deserved.”
The LJP (RS) has demanded installation of a life size statue of Ram Vilas, Bharat Ratna (posthumously) award for him and a state holiday to commemorate his death anniversary.
