For the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019, “Opposition parties are facing issues to make a MahaGathbandhan”, now the NDA is facing also some problems about seat sharing in Bihar. BJP President Amit Shah has been struggling hard to deal with NDA allies in Bihar. Nitish Kumar’s JDU was calling for more seats in the state, calling himself a big brother in the past. Now Union Minister and RLSP chief Upendra Kushwaha is not happy with BJP’s seat-sharing 20-20 Formula. According to media reports, BJP President Amit Shah has put 20-20 formula in Bihar, which Upendra Kushwaha has refused to accept. According to Amit Shah’s 20-20 formula, BJP could contest 20 of the 40 Lok Sabha seats in the state and the remaining 20 will be handed by JDU, RLSP, and LJP. Amit Shah has divided 20 seats to NDA allies in this way – Nitish Kumar’s JDU has 12, Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP 6 and Upendra Kushwaha’s RLSP could contest on seats.
In a press conference held in Patna on Tuesday, Upendra Kushwaha did not say anything openly on this formula but said a big deal in gestures. He said that I do not know the 20-20 formula. I have not played cricket but have played “Gilli Danda” so there is no information about the 20-20 formula.
The Paigaam-e-Kheer program is being organized by RLSP on Tuesday in Patna. People from all classes, including Dalit, Muslim and upper caste, will sit together in this program. Through this program, Upendra Kushwaha wants to follow every class. At the same time, Kushwaha could have show power to the ruling BJP in Bihar. NDA ally, National Lok Samata Party (RLSP) on Saturday accused Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for creating a confusion about seat sharing in Bihar.
RLSP spokesman Madhav Anand said, “Since the time Nitish Kumar has aligned back with BJP, confusion has remained. His party has always been claiming to be a big brother in the alliance and the Chief Minister’s face is always being made as PM Candidate.
