RLSP Eyes Six Seats in Lok Sabha Polls
After the controversial ‘Kheer’ remarks by Upendra kushwaha, the RLSP is demanding six seats in Bihar for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections to accommodate all its senior leaders as majority of state Kushwaha leaders have joined RLSP. Sources say the party is also in touch with the RJD in case they don’t get a decent offer from the BJP. Two senior leaders — Bhagwan Singh Kushwaha and Nagmani — met Lalu Prasad in Mumbai last month in this regard.
“Our leader has demanded that an agreement of seats must be reached much ahead of polls in the state, so that everyone gets enough time for preparation,” says Nagmani. But Nagmani denies any such meeting. “This is not true. I never met Lalu Yadav and Bhagwan Singhji is anti-Lalu,” he says. He said that RLSP has 10 percent vote share while Nitish Kumar has mere 3 percent loyal vote share.
