Earlier on Tuesday, Sonia Gandhi also held a meeting with the party’s general secretary and state in-charges. In this meeting, what should be the planning for the upcoming assembly elections were discussed and then after that she talked to Lalu Yadav over the phone. For a long time, there has been an atmosphere of tension between the two parties regarding the alliance.
Earlier on the alliance with Congress, Lalu Yadav had said that his party’s candidates will have to forfeit their security deposit in the elections if they stay in alliance with the Congress in the state. Bihar Congress in-charge Bhakta Charan Das had accused RJD some time back that the RJD was helping the BJP by turning its back on the Congress.
Responding to this, Lalu Yadav had called Das an idiot. The matter had gained momentum after Lalu called him an idiot and the Congress called it an insult. RJD has already decided to contest on two seats and after which Congress has also fielded its candidates for two seats. This has led to a rift between the allies in the state. By-elections are going to be held in Bihar on October 30 and for which RJD has fielded its candidates from both Kusheshwar Asthan and Tarapur.
