Chirag Paswan on Wednesday wrote to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla that the decision to name Pashupati Kumar Paras as Leader of LJP in the Lok Sabha in his place is contrary to the provision of the party constitution.

In a letter written on Tuesday, Paswan also informed Birla of the party’s decision to expel five MPs, who have joined hands against him, and urged the Speaker to review the earlier decision and issue a new circular naming him as the LJP leader in the Lok Sabha.

"Since Article 26 of the Constitution of Lok Jan Shakti Party empower Central Parliamentary Board of the party to decide who would be Leader of our Party in Lok Sabha, hence, the decision of announcing Sh. Pashupati Kumar Paras MP as Leader of LJP party in the Lok Sabha is contrary to the provision of Constitution of our party," he wrote.

Further the young leader through his letter also brought to the notice of the Speaker and put on record that the five LJP members of Lok Sabha “have already been removed by National Executive Members of our party”.

Paswan’s paternal uncle Paras has been elected as their leader by the five of the party's six MPs in place of him.

Both factions have now moved to control the party and project their group as the real LJP, founded by Paswan’s father Ram Vilas Paswan.

While the wing led by Chirag Paswan has expelled the five MPs from the party, the rival group has removed him as its president.
