As per the announcement, the Congress has been made to give up the Purnea Lok Sabha seat, which recent entrant Pappu Yadav, husband of Rajya Sabha MP Ranjeet Ranjan, was hoping to contest, claiming that he had received assurance of Congress ticket from Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi.

The seat will be contested by RJD, which recently gave the party ticket to JD(U) turncoat Bima Bharti, but stopped short announcing it formally.

The Mahagathbandhan's seat-sharing announcement comes a day after the filing of nomination papers for the first phase of Lok Sabha polls was over.

The RJD has fielded its candidates in all four seats going to polls in the first phase, in what has been resented by allies as a "unilateral move".

The Lok Sabha elections in Bihar will take place in seven phases spanning 43 days, beginning on April 19 and concluding on June 1, as announced by the Election Commission of India. 

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress won only one seat while the RJD and Left parties drew a blank. 

The NDA alliance compromising the BJP and Janata Dal (United)  swept the polls and won 17 and 16 seats, respectively.
