Ahead of 2019 LoK Sabha Polls the Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) summoned its ally BJP to get rid of Nitish Kumar-led JD-U. The statement came from RLSP state president Nagmani, his statement came at a time when the seat-sharing talks between Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Janata Dal-United (JD-U) are reportedly on the final stage.
The former Union Minister Nagmani told reporters, "BJP should get rid of JD-U, which has a social support base of 1.5 per cent while RLSP has a social support base of 10 per cent". He added that there is a pressure to force RLSP to walk away from the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance.
Nagmani also said, "BJP will be a major loser if RLSP joins the Grand Alliance of Rashtriya Janata Dal, Congress and Hindustani Awam Morcha." Murtanjay Tiwari, RJD spokesperson said that the RLSP would soon join the Grand Alliance. However, no comment has come from JD-u on the matter yet.
