Who Can Replace Paswan

Election is to be held in one Rajya Sabha seat in Bihar, which was vacated after the sad demise of LJP leader Ram Vilas Paswan. 

Now the name of LJP chief Chirag Paswan's mother is coming out in Rajya Sabha. But there is news that BJP is planning to field its candidate. That is, the LJP may lose its seat in Rajya Sabha as well.

After the death of veteran LJP leader Ram Vilas Paswan in Bihar, one seat of Rajya Sabha is vacant and by-elections are to be held and BJP will not lose this opportunity. Because there can be a golden opportunity to further strengthen the relationship between BJP and JDU. 

When Chirag Paswan consistently targeted JDU and Nitish during the Bihar assembly elections, there was no response from the BJP. Now it is possible that the BJP will field its own candidate on the Rajya Sabha seat. However, Chirag's mother Reena Paswan's name is coming up for the by-election. But now that the BJP does not agree on this.

Now in the 243-member assembly, the support of 122 MLAs will be needed for the Rajya Sabha. NDA has 125 MLAs, while LJP has 1 MLA. 

In such a situation, it is difficult that JDU will support LJP candidate.  Because during the recently held assembly elections, the way LJP has besieged JDU, it is clear that Chirag will not get the support of Nitish Kumar.

On the other hand, the BJP also has the opportunity to reduce the distance from the LJP on the other hand. Since the LJP is with the NDA at the center, but a new government has been formed recently, the BJP will not take any step to distance itself from the JDU. 

Well, there will be a by-election on December 14 for the Rajya Sabha seat. The notification will be released on 26 November and the last date for nomination will be 3 December. It has to be seen which candidate of the party reaches the Rajya Sabha from Bihar.
