Patna: As the Bihar assembly elections 2020 draw near, political equations in the state are witnessing rapid changes.
The BJP and JDU are fighting the elections together, but they have parted ways with the LJP. After the LJP split from the alliance on Wednesday, the NDA unveiled its seat-sharing formula.
After the announcement of the seat-sharing formula between the BJP and the JDU, the ratio of seats allotted to both parties has come under intense scrutiny.
This is perhaps the first time in Bihar that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is contesting more seats than Nitish Kumar’s JDU. Although the BJP contested more seats in the Lok Sabha polls last year, Nitish Kumar’s party JDU used to play the elder brother in the assembly elections. But this time the tables have turned.
Some of the 121 seats of the BJP will be allotted to Mukesh Sahni’s VIP. Although it is not clear how many seats will be given, political pundits believe that VIP will not be handed more than three to four seats.
