Vikassheel Insaan Party (VIP) chief Mukesh Sahani on Saturday walked out of a joint press convention held by the Rashtriya Janata Dal, the biggest social gathering within the Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance) to announce the seat-sharing association for the upcoming meeting elections in Bihar.
The state of affairs took a dramatic flip after Tejashwi Yadav introduced the seat-sharing cope with the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) set to contest on 144 seats. Yadav mentioned the Congress would contest on 70 seats whereas the CPM, CPI and CPI (ML) will contest on 4, 6 and 19 seats respectively.
He additional mentioned that the social gathering will accommodate seats for the VIP and JMM events from the RJD’s quota since discussions had been on with the 2 events, within the subsequent few days.
Sahani was upset that the RJD did not announce the variety of seats promised to the Vikassheel Insaan Party.
In the center of the occasion, Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Jha requested VIP chief Mukesh Sahani to handle the media after Yadav had spoken.
Sahani declared that he had been back-stabbed. “We were expecting 25 seats but when the time came, the RJD back-stabbed me and my party. They have ignored us at the critical juncture of this election as we belong to the most backward section of society,” Sahani mentioned.
After the dramatic announcement, Sahani walked off the stage of the joint press convention whilst some VIP social gathering activists raised slogans in opposition to the RJD.
“We are the most disciplined party in the Mahagathbandhan. Now, the RJD is taking another two to three days to allocate seats for us. All this is happening at a time when less than 25 days are left for polling,” mentioned VIP spokesperson Rajiv Mishra.
“We are protesting the RJD’s act. They have cheated us. The Grand Alliance cannot run like this. Our party core committee will soon have a meeting to decide the future course of action,” added Mishra.
Earlier within the occasion, Avinash Pandey, in-charge of Congress for Bihar meeting elections, mentioned his social gathering had joined arms with the RJD regardless of some variations to tackle the NDA authorities.
“Despite some difference of opinion with the RJD, we are here to defeat the Fascist NDA government in Bihar,” Pandey mentioned.
