The Election Commission will hear warring factions of the LJP on November 29

In the dispute over the control of the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) symbol and name, Election Commission (EC) sources announced Tuesday that the commission would hear the dispute on November 29.

EC has instructed Chirag Paswan and Pashupati Kumar Paras, leaders of the two groups, to appear for a personal hearing on November 29 and to submit any statements or documents in connection with their case by November 28.

Upon the death of Ram Vilas Paswan, founder of the LJP, in 2020, his son Chirag Paswan and brother Paras Paswan both aspired to lead the party.

As of October 2021, the EC had frozen the party’s name and symbol until the dispute had been resolved. Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) was assigned to Chirag Paswan’s faction and Rashtriya Lok Janshakti Party was assigned to Paras’ faction until a final decision was made.

Likewise, the poll panel requested that the two factions of the Shiv Sena, each led by Uddhav Thackeray and Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, submit all documents supporting their claims by November 23.

The EC wrote to the two leaders that if no further documents/particulars are received, it will be assumed that your group has no further input into the dispute and will proceed with the filing of a complaint, including the date of hearings.
