22 leaders from Chirag Paswan’s party resign, say will back INDIA bloc

Twenty-two leaders from Chirag Paswan-led Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) have resigned after they objected to not getting tickets for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, dealing a major blow to the party days after it sealed a pre-poll alliance with the BJP.

The leaders claimed that Chirag Paswan “sold all Lok Sabha tickets” and said they would now support the Opposition INDIA bloc.

Among those who stepped down include former minister Renu Kushwaha, former MLA and LJP’s national general secretary Satish Kumar, state organisation secretary Ravindra Singh, state general secretary Rajesh Dangi and party leaders Ajay Kushwaha and Sanjay Singh.
