Here’s the full list of candidates:
Meanwhile, lashing out at the RJD Supremo Lalu Yadav on Sunday, BJP chief JP Nadda said that Janata Party founder Jayprakash’s disciples had compromised his values. Taunting the RJD’s coalition with Congress ‘Mahagathbandhan’, he said that Jayprakash (JP), whose birth anniversary is today, fought Congress throughout his life and now his disciples were ’embracing Congress’.
BJP has kicked of its rally ahead of the Bihar polls which will be held in 3 phases, October 28, November 3, and November 7, with the results being declared on November 10.
The NDA- led by BJP poll-in-charge Devendra Fadnavis has faced a revolt from LJP, which has decided to contest separately claiming ideological differences with JD(U).
BJP has reaffirmed Nitish Kumar as its CM candidate and has released its seat-share with JD(U) with BJP keeping 121 seats for itself out of which 11 seats will be given to Mukesh Sahni-led Vikassheel Insaan Party.
On the other hand, JD(U) will field its candidates in only 115 constituencies whereas Hindustani Awam Morcha has been given the go-ahead in 7 seats- Kasba, Makhdumpur, Kutumba, Imamganj, Barachatti, Tikari and Sikandra. LJP has stated that it will not field its candidates against BJP and is open to a post-poll coalition.
