There is a tussle between the Congress and the RJD over the elections to be held on 24 seats of the Bihar Legislative Council. Both the parties involved in the Grand Alliance have seen their fate by fielding different candidates in the by-elections, yet there is tension. Had the Congress-RJD fought together in the by-elections, at least the Grand Alliance could have won the Tarapur seat.

Actually, this tussle between the two parties is visible only after the result of assembly elections 2020. The Congress stubbornly took 70 seats out of 243, but was able to win only 19 seats. After this anger flared up from inside the RJD that it was because of the Congress that the Grand Alliance government could not be formed and Tejashwi Yadav could not become the Chief Minister. Senior leader Shivanand Tiwari had then said, ‘If the Congress had contested on 50 seats, then the government of the Grand Alliance would have been formed.’

However, many Congress leaders kept saying that the Congress was given weak seats. The question is that when the Congress was being given weak seats, why did the Congress take so many seats? Why not check your wrestling before taking it on the field? The answer was found in the Sadaqat Ashram only when many Congress leaders made serious allegations of horse-trading and raised slogans.

The reason for RJD’s lofty intentions is clear from the voting share

In the assembly elections 2020, RJD got 23.11%, while Congress got 9.48% votes. JDU got 15.39% and BJP 19.46% votes. That is, the most powerful vote share was of RJD. In this regard, the intentions of the RJD are high. Because of this, RJD is not ready to bow down to the pressure of its ally National Party Congress.

What do the leaders of both the parties say on these lofty intentions

Congress leader Rishi Mishra says that the party should bring its strong candidates to the fore. It doesn’t matter just by taking multiple seats, but for strong candidates it matters. Giving tickets to the Legislative Council elections to the children and relatives of the leader will not help.

At the same time, RJD spokesperson Chittaranjan Gagan says that to defeat the NDA, all the parties of the Grand Alliance should talk after seeing their ground reality. The ground reality of RJD is that it is the single largest party and also has the highest vote share. Similarly, other parties should also talk about seats after evaluating themselves.

At the time of the assembly elections, which of the parties of the NDA and the Grand Alliance contested and won how many seats, see that –
