In the by-elections being held on Kusheshwarsthan and Tarapur seats, JDU is fighting on both the seats from NDA. Here, RJD and Congress are playing different rhythms in this election, while LJP (Ram Vilas) has also fielded candidates, which is expected to be an interesting contest.
All the parties are preparing to throw their full strength after Dussehra regarding the by-elections in two assembly seats of Bihar. After Dussehra, all the parties will fight in the election season with their own strategy. In such a situation, while the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is expected to split in the Grand Alliance, the main opposition party RJD has faith in its leader Lalu Prasad. By the way, if seen, all the parties including NDA and RJD are claiming their victory.
In this election, in the ruling coalition NDA, both the seats in the quota of JDU have gone to Kusheshwarsthan and Tarapur. JDU has fielded its candidates on both these seats. Here, RJD and Congress are playing different rhythms in this election, while LJP (Ram Vilas) has also fielded candidates, which is expected to be an interesting contest.
BJP spokesperson Nikhil Anand says that JD(U) candidates had won both the seats in the elections held last year and the same result will be there in this by-election as well. Claiming NDA’s victory, he said, “NDA is definitely in a position to win in the assembly by-elections. As for the Grand Alliance, both the parties Congress and RJD have split.
When asked about the impact of Lalu’s coming in the election campaign, he said that Lalu Prasad should take orders from the court before coming to campaign. He, however, also said that RJD will never bet on Lalu Prasad’s health for the by-polls. His health is not good now. He also said that the condition of Congress is already going bad.
Here, JDU spokesperson and former Union Minister Neeraj Kumar also says that the opposition has already accepted defeat. Taking a dig at RJD and its leader Lalu Prasad, he said, “It is heard that those who cannot even contest the panchayat elections are being called for campaigning. Tejashwi Yadav does not have confidence in his political effort. They are in politics on the basis of compassion. Now the people of Bihar will not win such people.
There is a discussion in the political corridors of Bihar about this by-election that Lalu Prasad is going to come for the campaign. However, it has not been officially announced yet. Here, Lalu Prasad is also at number one in the list of star campaigners of RJD. In such a situation, it is being said that Lalu Prasad will definitely come for campaigning in this by-election.
Meanwhile, RJD spokesperson Mrityunjay Tiwari said that by-elections are being held in two assembly seats. If Lalu Prasad comes for election campaign in both the seats, then there can be no contest for him. He said that Lalu Prasad resides in the hearts of the people here. He said that in the last elections also, the voters of the state had made RJD the single largest party and in this by-election also RJD would be victorious.
