लोजपा प्रमुख चिराग पासवान ने कहा था कि वे राज्य में भाजपा के खिलाफ प्रत्याशी नहीं खड़ा करेंगे, पर दूसरे चरण में कुल पांच ऐसी सीटें हैं, जहां से लोजपा ने भाजपा के खिलाफ प्रत्याशी उतारे हैं। इन्हीं में एक सीट भागलपुर की भी है, जहां चिराग की पार्टी भाजपा का खेल बिगाड़ सकती है।
A young leader like Chirag Paswan has a unique style of politics in his state. He has worked amply hard to build his party and prepared a plan to increase his party position by choosing a different plan. He does not ignore the soft hits of the Janata Dal-United in the political arena.
Nonetheless, he did not appear to be scared of what others might think of his political steps. His solo entry into the state’s assembly electoral complexities endorsed his solitary decision after his father’s recent death.
Under the able guidance of his poll advisors and supporters, he has distanced himself from the JDU but remained on holding his side with the BJP. However, his Bhagalpur candidates mar his position despite assurances. Yet, he was every inch confident of his party’s position in the polling in the fast nearing second phase.
Indicating at the voting trend in the initial phase, he did not fail to assert that his party workers are quite exuberant after the polling was over. He looked quite anxious as to why Nitish Kumar was not ready to accept his stance and still regularly to emphasise upon.
He continued that it is beyond his hopeful apprehension of why the BJP leaders console Nitish Kumar by saying that they have nothing to do with the LJP leader Chirag Paswan? Despite the repeated affirmations coming from the BJP, Nitish Kumar does not get wholly satisfied, he maintained.
“So long as he does not hear from the Prime Minister, he will not be convinced. It seems to me that he would like to hear this fact from the President or other country’s President or American President even,” he added that Nitish Kumar would no longer be Bihar’s CM after coming November 10.
“I don’t know what to do anymore. I mean sure, I love playing politics like other players. But that’s not what all the leaders think about, dream about and talk about”, he stated openly, frankly, and candidly.
