The disgruntled LJP leaders joined the ruling JD(U) in presence of its national president and Rajya Sabha member RCP Singh. The joining event took place at the JD(U) state office here.
Earlier on Wednesday, LJP’s senior leader Rameshwar Chourasia who contested the 2020 assembly polls from Sasaram constituency, left the party. Chourasia, a former MLA, was earlier with the BJP and had won Nokha assembly seat thrice on the BJP ticket. He had joined the LJP before the last assembly polls after the BJP denied him the party symbol to contest the election.

Other prominent LJP leaders who joined the JD(U) on Thursday, were Ramnath Raman, Dinanath Kranti, Md Ezaz, labour cell state president Kaushal Singh Kushwaha, EBC cell’s former state president Parasnath Gupta and Subhash Paswan.
Welcoming the LJP leaders in his party, RCP Singh said, “JD(U) is the only party of socialist ideology in the country in which there is no place for nepotism and dynasty politics.”
“If a person has merit and capacity and also does hard work, s/he can reach to any level in the JD(U). There is no scope for nepotism or dynasticism in the party,” the bureaucrat-turned-politician said.
RCP also said that the party leader and Bihar CM Nitish Kumar gave a new identity to Bihar by his good works. “Nitish Kumar’s only ‘Dharma’ is serving common people and the entire Bihar is his family. We have to raise the pride of Bihar by marching forward on the path shown by Nitish Kumar,” the JD(U) boss said while addressing the newly-inducted party leaders.
JD(U) state president Umesh Kushwaha and the party’s state general secretary Anil Kumar also welcomed the LJP leaders in the JD(U).
In the meantime, Bihar’s ruling JD(U) on Thursday decided to celebrate CM Nitish Kumar’s birthday on March 1 as ‘Vikas Diwas’
JD(U) national president RCP Singh said, on March 1 the party workers would gather at each polling station in every village and town and wish for the long life of Nitish Kumar. Besides this, the party workers would hold discussions with local people about the different development works executed by Nitish Kumar in the state.
