Zakir Hussain Khan, the lone MLA of Ramvilas Paswan’s party resigned from it on Wednesday and will in all possibilities join Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United JD(U), which has promised to give him ticket from Araria.
“I have faxed my resignation from the post of vice-president of LJP,” Khan, MLA of Araria, said.
Zakir’s resignation comes amid indications of LJP forging ties with BJP for the upcoming general elections.

Khan said he has put in the papers in protest against the party going along with ‘communal’ BJP in the Lok Sabha polls.
He said he had made his position clear to Paswan that he cannot be part of any alliance with BJP and had expressed his reservation against going with it before LJP parliamentary board.
Asked about his future plans, Khan said he would explore political options to strengthen secularism.
After the 2010 Assembly elections, two out of three LJP MLAs had quit the party and joined Nitish Kumar’s bandwagon. Zakir Hussain Khan was the lone party MLA left.
LJP national general secretary Vijendra Chaudhary has also expressed strong reservation against any tie-up with BJP.
