Political Moves In LJP And BJP: 5 MPs Rebel Against Chirag Paswan; MLAs Missing At Suvendu Adhikari's Meet

INDIA Team Latestly|

A day after five of six Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) MPs broke away in a stunning coup led by his uncle, Chirag Paswan's attempts at reconciliation were roundly snubbed. Five rebel MPs voted to replace Chirag Paswan, the son of party founder Ram Vilas Paswan who died last year on June 14 elected his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras as their leader instead. Later, Speaker Om Birla endorsed the decision, leaving Chirag Paswan replaced as Lok Sabha leader in the party he heads. Pashupati Kumar Paras, the younger brother of Ram Vilas Paswan, refused to meet his nephew in Delhi on June 14 afternoon & made it clear that he represents the "real LJP" now. Chirag Paswan drove to his uncle's house but stayed in his car for an hour & 45 minutes as Paras did not invite him in. His cousin Prince Raj also stays there, but he did not come out either. Reports say Chirag Paswan had gone with a compromise formula - he makes way for his mother to become party chief. Meanwhile, BJP's efforts to counter reports of the "reverse migration" of its leaders to Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress in Bengal failed on June 14. A section of its MLAs stayed away from Suvendu Adhikari's meeting with the Governor. Watch the video to know more.
