After days of negotiations with the Rashtriya Janata Dal, the Congress party on Tuesday agreed to lower down its demand for 11 seats in the state to 9.
In the arrangement that was agreed upon by the parties, the Mahagathbandhan had on Friday declared that Congress is set to contest on 9 constituencies, a settlement that took place after the grand old party was looking to get its contestants on 11 seats 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.
