To set their threads straight in the upcoming elections of Bihar, the leaders of “Mahagathbandhan” held a meeting on Tuesday at RJD (Rashtriya Janata Dal) national vice president and former chief minister Rabri Devi‘s residence.

“Mahagathbandhan” is a multi-party grouping that came together to contest the polls in the state of Bihar. The coalition comprises of Rashtriya Janata Dal, Congress party, RLSP (Rashtriya Lok Samta Party), HAM (Hindustani Awam Morcha) and VIP (Vikassheel Insaan Party). The group suffered a massive defeat in Lok Sabha elections of 2019.

The grouping also had Chief Minister and JD(U) national president Nitish Kumar once but after two years, he had returned to NDA (National Democratic Alliance). Rashtriya Lok Samata Party, Hindustani Awam Morcha, and the Vikassheel Insaan Party joined the “Mahagathbandhan” in later stages.

The meeting saw the presence of Tejashwi Yadav, state unit chief Ram Chandra Purve and veteran leader Jagadanand Singh. Virendra Rathore (National Secretary-in-charge of Congress party in Bihar) along with state president Madan Mohan Jha represented Congress party. Upendra Kushwaha (RLSP founder), Jitan Ram Manjhi (HAM founder) and Mukesh Sahni (VIP party) also graced the occasion with their presence.

The alliance iterated its views that they had not just come together for election purpose, but they will also strive for the upliftment of poor and downtrodden weaker sections. After the meeting, the alliance issued a statement that read, “The coalition of RJD, Congress, RLSP, HAM, and VIP was not just for elections. The alliance understands its responsibility towards poor, Dalits, backward and other deprived classes for whom the governments at the Centre and in the state seem to have the least concern.”

Alliance also expressed its concerns over the tumbling condition of Indian economy. The meeting saw the common decision that the grouping will now focus on holding public agitations to make state politically aware. It also attacked BJP and RSS for attacking the Indian Constitution and social harmony. The meeting especially saw the mention of Mohan Bhagwat’s name for his statements.

However, the alliance has not yet come up with a common name for Chief-Minister post.
