Upendra Kushwaha, chief of Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) met Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Sunday.
Seat sharing in NDA in Bihar 2019 Lok Sabha polls discussed in the meeting.
Kushwaha informs about his meeting with LJP president and the issues discussed through social media soon after the meeting.
Kushwaha, RLSP chief on Tweeted, "I met Ram Vilas Paswan at his residence in Patna and apart from other issues we discussed the seat sharing agreement."
Upendra Kushwaha also informs Paswan about the recent controversy between him and Nitish Kumar which started after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar allegedly called him "neech" at a public function. In fact, Kushwaha has grabbed this opportunity to slam the Bihar chief minister and is trying hard to get maximum political mileage out of this.
There is a protest staged by the Kushwaha community on this issue. However, protestors were lathi-charged by the police which has further deteriorated relations between JDU and RLSP.
Upendra Kushwaha twitted, "I have apprised Ram Vilas Paswan of the abusive rant by Nitish Kumar for me and the brutal lathi charge that took place on the innocent protesters belonging to the Kushwaha community."
