Manjhi took a dim view of the LJP's position, saying much water had flowed in the state politics in the past one decade.
"We will oppose the candidate of the dissident JD(U) MLA and former agriculture minister Narendra Singh's two MLA sons - Ajay Pratap (Jamui) and Sumit Kumar Singh (Chakai), the disqualified JD(U) MLAs Raju Singh (Sahebganj) and Ajit Kumar (Kanti), besides the JD(U) MLA Anil Kumar (Tekari)," the LJP's state unit president Pashupati Kumar Paras told reporters.
Sitting on the chair next to party supremo Ramvilas Paswan, Paras said that he had already apprised senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi of its decision to oppose the five HAM (Secular) leaders in the coming election for backstabbing and deserting the LJP after February 2005, Assembly poll in Bihar.
"We will put up our candidates against these five present and ex-MLAs if HAM (Secular), led by Manjhi, gives them tickets to contest the poll under the NDA," he said. Paswan, who is the Union Food and Consumers Affairs Minister, nodded his head in approval as Paras spoke.
