The Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) will contest from 66 constituencies for the upcoming Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections, announced party president Upendra Kushwaha on Tuesday.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) reportedly offered just two seats to NDA ally RLSP in Bihar for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
The offer was made to RLSP chief and Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha on Tuesday during a meeting with BJP General Secretary and Bihar in-charge Bhupendra Yadav, said IANS quoting sources.
The day the BJP and JD-U announced that they will contest an equal number of seats in Bihar in the Lok Sabha polls, Kushwaha met Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav, setting off speculation that he was not happy with the developments. In all, Bihar has 40 Lok Sabha seats.
In the 2014 polls, the RLSP contested three seats as part of the NDA alliance and won all of them.
