RJD-LJP not to contest RS polls: Paswan

Patna: The RJD-LJP alliance may not put up a candidate in the election on six Rajya Sabha seats from Bihar due to shortage of required numbers to win even one seat, LJP President Ramvilas Paswan said today.

"The entire opposition in the Bihar legislative assembly have put together 28 MLAs that is not sufficient to elect even one candidate in the ensuring polls for six Rajya Sabha seats," he told reporters in reply to a question. Under the circumstances, it was unlikely that the RJD-LJP alliance will put up its candidate on the sixth Rajya Sabha seat, Paswan said.
