In a startling turn of events, Union Minister Pashupati Kumar Paras tendered his resignation from the central government today, citing perceived injustice by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) towards his party, the Rashtriya Lok Janshakti Party (RLJP). Addressing the media in a press conference, Paras lamented the exclusion of RLJP from the seat-sharing discussions for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in Bihar.

The resignation comes just a day after the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) unveiled its seat-sharing arrangement in Bihar, allocating five seats to the Chirag Paswan-led LJP faction, headed by Ram Vilas Paswan. Paras, expressing his discontent, accused the BJP of sidelining RLJP and failing to engage them in the crucial discussions regarding electoral alliances.

The move by Paras, a prominent leader within RLJP and a sitting Union Minister, underscores the growing tensions within the NDA coalition in Bihar. His resignation sends shockwaves through political circles, raising questions about the unity and cohesion within the alliance ahead of the crucial polls.

The rift within the NDA alliance in Bihar signals a potential challenge for the BJP as it navigates the complex dynamics of coalition politics in the state. With the resignation of Paras, the RLJP finds itself at a crossroads, grappling with the fallout of the perceived snub by its ally.

As Bihar gears up for the Lok Sabha elections, Paras’s resignation adds a new layer of uncertainty to the political landscape, setting the stage for intensified negotiations and realignments among the key players in the state. The coming days are likely to witness heightened speculation and strategizing as parties maneuver to secure their electoral interests in this high-stakes battle for power.
