    BREAKING: Chirag Paswan’s LJP to contest Assam Polls

    Founded in 2000 by the late Ram Vilas Paswan, the party is currently led by Paswan's son Chirag Paswan

    GUWAHATI: The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) led by Chirag Paswan has decided to contest the upcoming assembly elections in Assam in order to expand and strengthen the party’s base.

    However, the Bihar-based party was yet to announce whether it will join hands with any political party or will fight alone.

    LJP’s secretary-general Abdul Khaliq told the media that the party is likely to contest in all the 126 seats of Assam. He said that the party has taken the decision based on the feedback by its state unit aiming to expand and strengthen the party’s base in the state.

    Founded in 2000 by the late Ram Vilas Paswan, the party is currently led by Paswan’s son Chirag Paswan. The party had gone solo and contested in 135 seats during the Bihar assembly election last year but had won only a single seat.
