Former Bihar CM Manjhi eyes another term in power

New Delhi, June 14 (ANI): Former Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi, on Sunday said that his newly-formed party, along with BJP would register a thumping victory in the forthcoming state elections. Manjhi, who recently formed the Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM), said that HAM-BJP alliance would garner two-third of the votes. He, however, added that the final call on the coalition’s chief ministerial candidate would be made by the BJP. Manjhi rubbished reports of dispute between him and Paswan over seat sharing, stating that he only aimed to defeat the ruling JD (U) and its ally Rashtriya Janata Dal. Manjhi was expelled from the JDU for not resigning as Bihar chief minister to let Nitish Kumar take over the post in February 2015 after which he formed his own party, HAM. The elections to the 240-member state assembly are due before 29 November 2015 when the legislative assembly of Bihar is scheduled to expire.
