After a change in Bihar’s political equations following Lok Janshakti Party’s alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Congress has started distancing itself from the Rashtriya Janta Dal.
RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, who left for New Delhi saying he would “return only after announcing an alliance with the Congress”, came back to Patna on Friday evening and said that the RJD is ready for a “lathbandhan (fight)”.
Sources said the Congress and RJD, which had earlier agreed on a 25:15 seat-sharing to suffocate the LJP and force it quit, have been sparring over at least half a dozen seats including Madhubani, Sitamarhi, Pataliputra, Nawada and East Champaran.
Congress is not willing to accept some “upper-caste” seats which the RJD is ready to give as per its “convenience”.
A Congress source said while some senior leaders are in favour of an alliance, the youth brigade is pushing AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi to going into the elections all alone in Bihar.
