DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - INDI - Vithika Salomi

Patna: Union Min­is­ter Upen­dra Kush­waha’s Rashtriya Lok Sa­mata Party (RLSP) may be brew­ing more trou­ble for the NDA camp in Bi­har.

Se­nior party leader Nag­mani, talk­ing to re­porters in Je­han­abad, ex­pressed dis­plea­sure that RLSP had not yet been in­vited for seat-shar­ing talks even as pro­posed “20-20 for­mula” was re­ported in the me­dia and Bi­har CM and JD-U Pres­i­dent Ni­tish Kumar was claim­ing that a “re­spectable agree­ment” had been reached with the BJP over the mat­ter.

“Party will hold a meet­ing and de­cide what is good for it, es­pe­cially its chief Upen­dra Kush­waha. We are not a slave of the BJP,” said Nag­mani. He said, “The JD-U has barely 1-2% vote base and it is de­mand­ing 17-18 seats while we have a solid 10% vote.”
