The rejection of the Bail plea of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad by Jharkhand High court on Thursday came as a big blow not only to his party but other parties of the maha gathbandhan too.


The RJD and it’s allies were hoping that Lalu might be out of jail and it would facilitate the seat sharing arrangements in the grand alliance. In fact the seat sharing process was to start after kharmas and leaders of the some of the parties had declared that it would be formalised after January 14 as by that time Lalu would be out of jail.


But the court order has dashed their hopes. A senior RJD leader said, “We honour the court order. We feel disappointed but we are not crestfallen.”


The seat sharing among the grand alliance partners: RJD, Congress, Hindustani Awam Morcha, RLSP, Vikashsheel Insan Party besides the Left parties is a very critical exercise and all these parties have pinned hopes on Lalu who despite being convicted and jailed is still seen as centrestage of Bihar politics.


Many of the alliance partners, particularly the Congress, have started showing eyes to RJD leader and Lalu’s political heir Tejashwi Prasad Yadav. Congress is flexing muscles by saying that the party wouldn’t agree on less than 20 Lok Sabha seats.


It is believed that RJD would contest 20 or half of the Lok Sabha seats in Bihar and adjust other allies on remaining 20 seats. Jitan Ram Manjhi of HAM party and Upendra Kushwaha of RLSP have also stated that they should get honourable place in the alliance.


Both Manjhi and Kushwaha recently met Lalu at RIMS and said everything would be finalized after Lalu’s release on bail.


Congress made it clear that none of its leaders would visit jail to discuss poll related matters with RJD supremo. The party said it’s leader Subodh Kant Sahay went to meet Lalu but they didn’t talk on election related issues rather Sahay only accompanied Shatrughan Sinha.


RJD sources privately admit that the absence of Lalu would adversely affect the maha gathbandhan before the crucial pills and the NDA would not afford to see RJD chief out jail and making his political moves to counter the rivals.
