No regrets over joining NDA: Ram Vilas Paswan

No regrets over joining NDA: Ram Vilas Paswan
‘I did my best to work out an alliance with RJD and bring Congress on board, but the two parties wanted to drag seat-sharing talks over an indefinite period. That left me with no option but to clinch a pre-poll tie-up with the BJP-led NDA,’ he said at his first press conference here after joining NDA.

Paswan said he had apprehensions that Congress and RJD wanted to delay seat-sharing talks beyond the announcement of the parliamentary poll schedule, which has been proved true.

‘I was apprehensive they would offer us only a couple of seats at the last minute, which we would have been forced to accept as there would have been no other option for us... Accepting an offer of a couple of seats would have been insulting for us and humiliating to our party,’ he said.
