Things are not going good for the Mahagatbandhan in the state. Cracks have appeared in the coalition as RJD has decided to field candidates from two Lok Sabha seats against the one seat allotted to it by its allies.
In Jharkhand, the oppositions 'grand alliance' or mahagatbandhan is comprised of Congress, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), Rashtriya Janata Dal(RJD) and Jharkhand Vikash Morcha (Prajatantrik). Partners in the grand alliance had announced seat-sharing on March 24. As per seat-sharing, the Congress, the JMM, the JVM-P and the RJD will contest on seven, four, two and one seat respectively.
However, RJD has fielded Subhash Yadav from Chatra and Ghuran Ram from Palamau Lok Sabha seats even though it was allotted only Palamau while Chatra was given to the Congress as part of the seat sharing.
The RJD has made its intentions clear that "there will be no friendly fight" with the Congress.
