17 Mar :Giving a jolt to Lalu Prasad, his brother-in-law Sadhu Yadav has accused the RJD chief of "kneeling" before LJP in seat-sharing and announced that he will contest from two seats in Bihar which have been given to LJP.
Reacting strongly to Sadhu’s outbursts, Prasad virtually declared his expulsion from the party."Whoever revolts in my party and shows disrespect to the party’s decision will be removed from the party. You may treat such people as out of the party," Prasad said when asked to comment on remarks of the party MP.
Agitated over his name not figuring in the list of nominees announced so far, Sadhu lashed out at Lalu."I am a sitting MP and have been winning elections. Prakash Jha was nothing but has been given a ticket from Betiah seat even as he had lost in the last election. This shows that Lalu has yielded before LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan," he said.
Sadhu, who is MP from Gopalganj constituency, is unlikely to get party ticket this time as his constituency Gopalganj has now become reserved seat from where he cannot contest.
Ending days of wrangling, RJD and LJP on Tuesday entered into a seat sharing deal under which Lalu Prasad’s party will contest 25 seats and Ram Vilas Paswan’s outfit 12, leaving the remaining three constituencies to Congress in Bihar which accounts for 40 Lok Sabha seats.
