Union Minister Pashupati Paras Resigns Over BJP’s Deal With Chirag Paswan

Pashupati Paras

In a dramatic turn of events, Union Minister Pashupati Paras has tendered his resignation from the Narendra Modi-led cabinet. The decision comes after the Rashtriya Lok Janshakti Party (RLJP), which he leads, was denied any seats in the seat-sharing arrangement among the constituents of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in Bihar.

The Seat-Sharing Saga

The seat-sharing deal, announced in Delhi on Monday, left the RLJP without a single seat allocation. This development followed the NDA’s pact with Chirag Paswan, the estranged nephew of late leader Ram Vilas Paswan, who heads the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP). Paras expressed his dissatisfaction with the outcome, citing “injustice” meted out to his party.

Pashupati Paras Resignation

Addressing the media, Pashupati Paras stated, “Yesterday, the NDA alliance announced the list of 40 candidates for Bihar Lok Sabha. Our party had five MPs, and I worked with utmost sincerity. However, injustice has been done to us and our party. Therefore, I resign from the post of Union Minister.”

Political Ripples

The resignation has sent shockwaves through the political landscape, raising questions about the NDA’s internal dynamics and the delicate balance of power. Pashupati Paras’s move underscores the tensions within the alliance and highlights the significance of seat-sharing negotiations in electoral politics.

RLJP’s Future

As the RLJP grapples with this setback, its future course of action remains uncertain. With the elections looming, the party faces the challenge of regrouping and strategizing to maintain its relevance in Bihar politics.

Reactions and Speculations

Chirag Paswan, whose party secured seats in the arrangement, has yet to comment on Pashupati Paras’s resignation. Political analysts speculate that this development could impact the NDA’s electoral prospects in Bihar.

Conclusion

Pashupati Paras’s resignation adds another layer of complexity to the Bihar electoral landscape. As the state gears up for the polls, all eyes are on how this political drama unfolds and its repercussions on the NDA’s fortunes.
