LJP no longer has any MLA-MLC left in Bihar. Chirag Paswan is left alone in the parliamentary party. But who will hold the LJP, it is yet to be decided. In the last 30 years in the state politics around social justice and temple construction in Ayodhya, there have been at least seven major incidents of MLA-MPs separation of parties. Defections of a few MLAs have been taking place every year. All these have one thing in common - the separated MPs or MLAs form their own separate party. Sometimes they merge with other parties. There is no difference in the movement of MPs and MLAs on the organization of the parent party. A new controversy has emerged in LJP. If five LJP MPs take control of the organization after the parliamentary party, then it will be a new political phenomenon.
This has happened many times in Bihar
In 1990, the Janata Dal government was formed, after that many MPs and MLAs of this party came out. First, the supporters of the then Prime Minister Chandrashekhar turned out to be the MLAs of the Janata Dal. He formed a new party by the name of SJP Rashtriya (November 1990). The next year it was the turn of the BJP MLAs to break up. At that time one-third of the MLAs could come out together and switch sides. The BJP had 39 MLAs. 13 left. Formed the entire revolution party. Later its MLAs joined the Janata Dal. The party of MPs led by George Fernandes also formed a new party. This happened in 1994. First Janata Dal George. Later the Samata Party was formed.
There was also a split in the CPI
There was also a split in the CPI legislature party due to the opposition of the then Chief Minister Lalu Prasad. Then the rebel MLAs of CPI formed a new party called Revolutionary Communist Party. Its MLAs later switched to the RJD. Today's RJD is also a party out of Janata Dal. In 1997, when the Janata Dal did not accept the leadership of the then Chief Minister Lalu Prasad, a new party was formed under the leadership of Lalu Prasad under the name Rashtriya Janata Dal. The original Janata Dal remained intact. After a long time, in 2003, the Samata Party merged with the Janata Dal. The new name became Janata Dal-United. Earlier, Ram Vilas Paswan formed the LJP in 2000 after breaking away from the Janata Dal. In 2005, there was a huge breakdown in the LJP legislature party. The party survived. The LJP is currently facing a worse breakdown.
their legislators run away
SP and BSP MLAs often run away in the Bihar assembly. In 2020, Zaman Khan won the BSP ticket and went to JDU. Even before this, no BSP MLA completed his term in the Bihar Legislative Assembly while in the same party. The same is the case with SP. Its MLAs won and joined the ruling party. The same happened with RLSP last time. Both its MLAs who won the 2015 elections went to JDU. Now RLSP has merged with JDU. LJP's lone MLA in the current assembly switched to JD(U). The lone LJP member of the Legislative Council joined the BJP.
