JDU, LJP not to fight Jharkhand elections along with BJP

Our Correspondents

Lok Janshakti Party, LJP, which is a member of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), will fight Jharkhand assembly elections alone on 50 seats. This was announced by LJP president Chirag Paswan in Deoghar on Tuesday. He said the first list of party candidates will be announced by Tuesday evening.

Paswan said he wanted the party to contest with the BJP in the upcoming elections, but they did not respond to the letter which he wrote to senior BJP leaders. He said LJP had demanded only six seats in the areas where the BJP had performed badly in the previous elections.

The Janata Dal (United) on Monday released its first list of 11 candidates for the Assembly polls, set to be held in five phases beginning November 30.

JD(U) state general secretary Shravan Kumar, after announcing the names here, said the party would depend on greenhorns in the first phase.

Barring former state minister Sudha Choudhary, who has been given a ticket from Chhatarpur(SC) seat, all nominees were first-timers, Kumar said.

The party, which had drawn a blank in the 2014 polls, had announced in August that it would go it alone this time. The five-phase elections will conclude on December 20 and counting will be held three days later, on December 23.​
