Begusarai (Bihar): After the charge sheet by the Delhi police the RJD is not in mood to offer Begusarai seat to Kanhaiya Kumar to contest the poll.
Sources said the charge sheet against former JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar might cast a shadow on his prospects to be a candidate from the Grand Alliance for the general elections.
RJD sources said the party is now in two minds about pitting Kanhaiya as their candidate from the Begusarai seat.
As the former student leader is currently implicated in the JNU controversy, the party is having second thought in offering the seat to get into the fray, sources confided. “That’s why our leader Tejashwi Yadav distanced himself from Kanhaiya Kumar in October 2018 CPI rally in Patna’s Gandhi Maidan and didn’t share stage with him,” sources claimed.
Kanhaiya was to contest the Lok Sabha elections from Bihar’s Begusarai constituency as the nominee of grand alliance. He is a native of Bihat panchayat under the Barauni block of Begusarai district.
