RJD win will make Araria hub of terrorism, says Giriraj Singh

RJD win will make Araria hub of terrorism, says Giriraj Singh

Another former chief minister and RJD national vice president Rabri Devi alleged that "all the terrorists in India are sitting in the BJP's office".

RJD's Kumar Krishna Mohan won the Jehanabad assembly seat that was earlier held by his father, Mundrika Yadav.

Out of one Parliamentary seat and two Legislative Assembly seats that faced by-polls on 11 March, RJD has won two, with the ruling BJP managing to bag only one Assembly seat.

The balloting in Jehanabad and Bhabua followed the death of RJD and BJP legislators respectively.

In Bihar, RJD is leading by 23,187 with 3,33,050 votes in the Araria Lok Sabha constituency while BJP is trailing with 3,09,863 votes.

On Wednesday, the BJP received a drubbing in all the three Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The BJP retained the Bhabua Assembly seat riding on a sympathy wave for Anand Bhushan Pandey, whose death at the age of 48, necessitated the bypoll. He has achieved 7,600 votes, while BJP's Kaushlendra Singh Patel has gotten 6,163 votes. This is not only a threat for Bihar, but also for the country. The saffron party had fielded Pandey's wife Rinky. "How can that be the hub of ISIS", questioned former Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi.




The BJP, which was till then in opposition, offered its support to Kumar following which the latter formed a new government and returned to the NDA.

His party colleague Sushil Kumar Modi, the deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, also made an unsubtle statement in a tweet last evening.

RJD candidate Suday Yadav led by more than 16,000 votes in Jahanabad over his nearest Janata Dal-United (JD-U) rival Abhiram Sharma. "It will become a hub of terrorism", he claimed.

In Araria, RJD candidate Sarfaraz Alam defeated BJP's Pradeep Kumar Singh.

Commenting on emerging trends in by-elections happening in Bihar, CPI state working committee member Irfan Ahmad Faatmi said these results will impact the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
