Patna: The ‘Mahagathbandhan’ or Grand Alliance in Bihar is intact and its candidates for all the 40 Lok Sabha seats in the state will be announced after Holi, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said here on Wednesday. Yadav, who is the younger son and political heir of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad, was replying to queries from a swarm of journalists at the airport here on his return from New Delhi after hectic negotiations that took place over the past several days.
All is well in the Mahagathbandhan. It is intact and strong and we will put up a strong fight at the hustings. All differences have been ironed out. We will announce our candidates after Holi,” Yadav told reporters. He said that RJD would stay away from the Holi festivities this year as a mark of respect for the Pulwama martyrs.
