Our alliance will remain strong during the Lok Sabha elections and his party (Mr. Paras) will extend full support to all forty NDA candidates in Bihar. He will throw his support behind our candidates and ensure their victory in the elections,” Mr Nadda added.

Announcing his resignation as Union minister earlier this month, Paras accused the BJP of ‘injustice’ after losing a ticket from Hajipur. None of his party members found themselves on the NDA ticket for the subsequent seven-phase general elections.

As part of the deal the NDA struck earlier with Chirag Paswan, his party will contest five Lok Sabha seats in Bihar.

Mr Paswan is eyeing a term in the lower house from the Hajipur constituency, which was represented by his father, former Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan, for several terms.

Following the press conference in which he expressed his dissent after being denied a ticket from Hajipur, there was speculation that Mr Paras might re-enter the fray as an independent, with support from the INDIA bloc.

The Jitan Ram Manjhi-led Hindustani Aawam Morcha (HAM) and Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (RLSP) will contest one seat each, while the Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) will contest the remaining five seats.

The undivided LJP, founded by Ram Vilas Paswan, split into two factions in 2021, with Chirag Paswan and Mr Paras leading the rival outfits.

In the 2019 polls, Mr Paras won Hajipur while Chirag Paswan secured a resounding victory from Jamui.
