"I would like thank (BJP MP) Shatrughan Sinhaji. He is our well-wisher from the beginning. We are like brothers. But, I have already said that I will remain in national politics and not go to the state," he said.
He was asked about the comments of actor-turned-BJP MP Sinha that Paswan would make a better chief ministerial candidate for NDA in Bihar.
Paswan said that NDA is unlikely to announce any chief ministerial candidate ahead of elections and that the Chief Minister, in the event of an NDA victory, would be elected only after the polls.
He said the issue of seat-sharing among the NDA allies for the Bihar polls should be over by this month-end.
"Seat-sharing is not an issue. We will sit. But, we have not sat so far (for talks on seat-sharing). We will sit and decide. I feel that it should be done quite early. It should be done within this month," he said.
Maintaining that the special package announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has silenced the ruling JD(U) and its allies, Paswan said NDA would win the elections comfortably.
"The programme (Ara rally) of Prime Minister Modiji made it clear that there is no fight. We will win with two-thirds majority. An NDA government will be formed. The NDA alliance is absolutely solid," he said.
The development package announced by the Prime Minister had a very good impact and the announcement has silenced Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the JD(U)’s allies, Paswan said.
"It had very good impact. People of Bihar did not have such expectation. Even Nitish Kumar did not know. Nitish Kumar was seeking Rs 50,000 crore. But the Prime Minister hit a six. He announced Rs 1,25,000 crore at once. Now, they are silenced. They are not able to say anything, not able to give an answer," he said.
