Paswan all set to align with BJP again
The new tie up that may come as a jolt to Congress’ plans to have a ‘secular’ alliance with his party and RJD is likely to be announced in the next few days as LJP’s Parliamentary Board that met on Wednesday authorised Paswan to take a final decision in this regard. ‘The LJP Parliamentary Board has passed a resolution that all steps, even if they are strong ones, should be taken in the interest of the party and if an alternative alliance is to be firmed up party chief Ram Vilas Paswan should take the decision’, said his son Chirag Paswan, who heads the Parliamentary Board.

He told reporters that there was a ‘deadlock’ on the issue of alliance between RJD-Congress and LJP. To a question whether LJP will tie-up with BJP, he said that ‘all options are now open for the LJP’.

The LJP chief said members in the Parliamentary Board were of the opinion that the option of going with BJP should also be kept open. ‘We had our grievances with RJD for a long time. I had even gone to meet Lalu Prasad in jail. But soon after he was out, RJD leaders started saying LJP should be given three seats. That is why we left it to Congress to decide the seat sharing. I waited for months, but there was no decision.
