Patna, 15 September: The activism of all political parties has increased in Bihar in October-November. Here, in the grand alliance of opposition parties led by Rashtriya Janata Dal, there is no consensus on seat sharing yet, but the ‘thinktank’ alliance of the grand alliance is trying to increase the clan. It is being said that in this year’s assembly elections, the Left parties will not only join the constituents of the Grand Alliance, Jharkhand’s ruling party Jharkhand Mukti Morcha will also join the Grand Alliance and enter the electoral arena, indicating that Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren has given himself.
Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren has said that after meeting RJD President Lalu Prasad in Ranchi two days ago, JMM will contest the elections in Bihar along with RJD. It is noteworthy that in Jharkhand, there is a government of JMM, Congress and RJD. Sources reveal that pressure is also being created to merge many smaller parties into larger parties.

Sources say that RJD is also assessing the influence of constituents in all 243 seats in the state and the popularity of candidates in the regions. It is being said that RJD is looking at this election by connecting it with prestige, which is why RJD is also seeking a list of interested seats from all the constituent parties involved in the grand alliance.
The RJD leadership has also sent a clear signal to constituents that in this election only Jitu candidates should be fielded. RJD spokesman Mrityunjay Tiwari also says that the size of the grand alliance will increase further. He said that many parties are still in talks. Here, sources say that the RJD only wants to join such parties in the grand alliance that could not raise the finger of their younger son Tejashwi Yadav, the successor of RJD president Lalu Prasad.
RJD spokesman Tiwari clearly says that RJD is the largest party in the grand alliance. RJD has already announced that the party will contest the election under the leadership of Tejashwi Yadav and Tejashwi will be the candidate for the Chief Minister. It is noteworthy that the Congress, RJD and JDU, which were in the grand alliance in the last assembly elections, contested under the leadership of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD emerged as the largest party.
JDU is involved in the National Democratic Alliance in this election. In such a situation, it is being said that RJD is planning to win more seats in this election than in previous elections, so that no one can point fingers at Tejashwi’s leadership. Sources say that the RJD leadership is also trying to bring Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) into the grand alliance. However, even though the leadership of the Grand Alliance is busy strengthening itself by increasing its clan, but after the increase of the clan, the seat will be divided with the consent of all, it will not be easy.
