In the 2020 assembly elections, a half-and-half agreement was reached between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United (JDU). Now Nitish Kumar has demanded to implement this agreement in the upcoming Legislative Council elections as well, which BJP is not ready to accept. Notification for these elections is expected to be released soon. At present 24 seats are vacant in the Legislative Council.

JDU’s parliamentary board chairman and former Union minister Upendra Kushwaha raised the 50-50 demand on Tuesday. He had insisted that there was no reason to deviate from the formula agreed upon during the assembly elections. But, according to media reports, BJP leaders say that the party is not going to accept this demand of Nitish Kumar for the upcoming Legislative Council elections.

Kushwaha said, there is no reason to go back from the old formula

Kushwaha had said, “Since the 2015 assembly elections, JD(U) and its big ally have always followed a 50-50 formula on seat-sharing in each alliance. It also includes 2019 parliamentary elections and 2020 assembly elections. So we hope that this time also the same formula will be implemented. But the buzz is that BJP is not in the idea of ​​adopting this seat-sharing method this time.

In 2020, JDU got 122 seats and BJP got 121 seats under this agreement. Apart from this, both the parties had given seats to former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi’s Hindustan Awam Morcha (Hum) and Vikassheel Insaan Party (VIP) from their respective quotas.

BJP will field its candidates on 13 seats, will give 11 to JDU

Bihar BJP president Sanjay Jaiswal has suggested that a decision on the number of seats will be taken in Delhi and explained why this decision of JDU cannot be accepted. “First of all, the Central Parliamentary Committee of the BJP will take a decision on how many seats we will contest,” he said. Second and most importantly, 13 of the 24 vacant seats belonged to the BJP.

State Deputy Chief Minister Tarkishore Prasad has also rejected Kushwaha’s demand in a way. He said that Kushwaha’s statement has no significance. It will be decided by the top leadership of the party on how many seats the candidates will be fielded. According to reports, a senior BJP leader says that BJP will field its candidates on 13 seats and will give 11 to JDU. According to him, the party is not in favor of giving seats to us and VIPs.

We have demanded two seats and VIPs have demanded to be given four seats.
On the other hand, we have demanded two seats and VIP four seats for the Legislative Council elections. HAM spokesperson Danish Rizvi says that if our demand is not accepted, then we will consider another strategy. At the same time, the VIP, who has angered the BJP by announcing that it will contest in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, says that if the BJP does not accept our demand, then we are also not going to sit quietly.
