Congress ready to launch Tejashwi as the CM candidate for Assembly elections

Congress screening committee chairman Avinash Pandey said that Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) is a big party in Bihar and Tejashwi Yadav can be considered as the CM candidate in the formed alliance. Congress leads the opposition at the country level. If there is no social settlement in Bihar, then we are ready to contest all the 243 seats. Our support base has returned. The list of candidates is also ready.

Pandey was speaking to the press at Sadakat Ashram after coming to Patna on Saturday. It is said that the party will field the candidates who had won the election. Dedication of workers, loyalty to the party will be the basis of their candidate selection. Anyone who has worked hard for the party, day and night, will get the obvious priority. He further added that the election of Bihar will give a big message to the country. This time the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) has to be uprooted from here with full force.

If there is an alliance, the alliance will fight the seats where the candidates will be available. The preparation will also be done for the candidates of allies in other seats. How many seats will be won and on which the Congress can compromise, the matter is to be decided by the state president and state in-charge of the party. It is certain that more seats will be formed than the number of seats won in the last election. When asked about Upendra Kushwaha, he replied that that “we want anti-BJP forces to unite”.
