Patna: Still reeling with the shock of loss in the Lok Sabha elections in which his party failed to win even a single seat, former Bihar Chief Minister and Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) chief Jitan Ram Manjhi, refused to accept Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejaswi Yadav as the leader of the Mahagathbandhan saying he may be the leader of the RJD, no decision has been taken whether he should also be the leader of the Grand Alliance.
Speaking at a press conference in Patna on Thursday, Manjhi, said that for the state elections to be held in 2020, the Grand Alliance was yet to name a leader and it would be a mistake to think that Tejaswi Yadav was the automatic choice for that position.
"Tejaswi Yadav is not the leader of the opposition. This will be decided at a meeting of all Mahagathbandhan leaders to be held in the coming months.
As reported earlier, Manjhi last Saturday had said that the entire Lok Sabha election was rigged by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as poll results in Bihar and elsewhere were unexpected and strange in many ways.
The HAM chief lost his seat in Gaya where he was crushed by the JD-U candidate Vijay Kumar by a margin of 152,426 votes.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
