LJP’s Prez Can Only Be Removed If He Dies Or Resigns: Chirag Paswan

Mumbai: After reports claimed that Chirag Paswan has been removed as the National President of LJP, he said, “As per the party’s constitution, National President can only be removed if he/she dies or resigns.”

Addressing a press conference, Paswan said that the decision to appoint the Leader of House is taken by Parliamentary committee not sitting MPs.

“Appointment of Leader of House is parliamentary committee’s decision, not sitting MPs…There have been reports that I’ve been removed as the party’s national president. As per the party’s constitution, National President can only be removed if he/she dies or resigns.”

Paswan said when his father was in the hospital, JDU made several attempts to break the LJP.

“Some people were making attempts to break the party when my father was in the hospital. My father asked party leaders, including my uncle (Pashupati Kumar Paras), about the same. Some people weren’t ready for the struggle we had to go through,” said Chirag Paswan.

“All of this had conspired when I wasn’t well. I even tried to speak to my uncle at that time, but I failed,” he added.

Paswan also said that he, along with his mother, tried to contact Paras continuously even after the election if he had any complaints.

I feel orphaned now due to my uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras’s actions, added the LJP leader.

He further attacks his uncle Pashupati Paras and the other rebels, saying that they want to be in “comfortable politics.”

“Several party members, including my uncle, did not actively participate in the poll campaign. Some people wanted to live in a comfort zone. I agree and accept that if LJP had gone with the JD(U) and NDA in Bihar, we would have swept the Bihar polls,” said Paswan.

He also said he would have “happily” made his uncle the parliamentary party leader if he had come to him first.
