Hear the news
- In the remaining 93 seats, the Congress will also have to satisfy the Manjhi and Kushwaha faction.
- In the last election, JDU and RJD in the Grand Alliance fought on hundred seats and Congress on 40 seats.
In the last election, JDU and RJD contested hundred seats and Congress 40 on JDU's involvement in the Grand Alliance. Now in the changed political environment both RJD and Congress want to increase their strength.
In the grand alliance, the RJD does not want an equal this time but wants the role of the elder brother. The majority figure in the Assembly is 123 and in such a situation the RJD wants to strengthen itself by laying claim to 150 seats. At the same time, Manjhi and Kushwaha also want to stay away from the controversy over the demand.
After three decades, Congress wants to consolidate its position in Bihar again, so it will want to contest more and more seats. The Congress has not opened its cards yet, but it will have to satisfy Manjhi and Kushwaha in 93 seats. The Congress leader believes that there will be no problem with the seat sharing. When the election is announced, all the allies of the Grand Alliance will sit down and decide.
