The ‘Chacha-Bhatija’ Feud That Led To Collapse Of Chirag Paswan’s Party

Signs of a split in Chirag Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) first emerged last year when he publicly told off his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras, sources say.

Mr Paras, the younger brother of LJP founder and Chirag’s father Ram Vilas Paswan, had always been his Man Friday, preferring to be low key. When his nephew took control of the party, things soured quickly.

The Hajipur MP has now staged a coup that has left Chirag Paswan the lone MP in his party. Except him, the remaining five MPs have gone to the Lok Sabha Speaker and asked to be identified as a separate group.

Four days after Ram Vilas Paswan died on October 8 – weeks before the November Bihar election — a comment by Mr Paras praising Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar infuriated Chirag Paswan.

Chirag Paswan threatened to expel his uncle and reportedly declared: “You are not my blood.”
