New Delhi, June 14 (MNN) The battle of one-upmanship within Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) finally saw a denouement on Monday as MP Pashupati Kumar Paras became the LJP parliamentary party leader after Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla’s nod.

Paras, an uncle of LJP chief Chirag Paswan, was earlier unanimously chosen as leader of LJP parliamentary party in the Lower House by the rebel group.

Five of the six LJP MPs had also written to Birla and urged to be recognised as separate group in the House.

Chirag had gone to Paras’ residence to meet him, but could not do so despite waiting for quite some time.

Paras maintained at a press conference here that he was not out to finish the LJP, which was founded by late Union Minister and Chirag’s father Ram Vilas Paswan.

He claimed that he was rather saving the LJP from disintegration. The Hajipur MP claimed that some anti-social elements had come into the Lok Janshakti Party fold.

The other rebel LJP members of Parliament are Prince Paswan, Veena Singh, Chandan Kumar, and Mehboob Ali Kaiser.

Chirag, the national President of Lok Janshakti Party, is a member of Parliament from Jamui in Bihar.
