Reportedly, Tej Pratap will also take a press conference on the matter today. He will announce the names of the candidates formally from the party’s office at 2 PM. The former health minister said that he is with his younger brother and that he expects that Tejeshwi Yadav will put his clear the name of the candidates.
Earlier, in an arrangement agreed upon by the parties forming the ‘Mahagathbandhan’, it was declared that Congress is set to contest on 9 constituencies, while RJD pushed to give only 8. Mukesh Sahni’s Vikasheel Insaf Party gets 3 seats. Upendra Kushwaha’s RSLP gets five seats, while former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi’s HAM will contest on three seats. RJD is set to contest on 20 seats. Sharad Yadav will contest from RJD’ quota of seats. Also, one CPI ML is slated to contest on one seat from RJD quota.
