Chirag Paswan moved the EC to New Delhi, seeking its intervention against Paras and his faction, using the party symbol and flag in its meetings.
Paswan also said he rejected his uncle’s nomination for president and called a meeting of the party’s national executive committee on Sunday, June 13.
Paswan, according to the PTI news agency, insisted that the meeting held in Patna was “unconstitutional” and that there was no quorum.
Patna High Court attorney Amit Shrivastava said The times of Hindustan that as the dispute officially reached the EC, the panel would be guided by the constitution of the LJP.
“The provisions and clauses of the LJP party constitution will be the deciding factor in deciding whether a decision regarding the appointment or termination of membership made by the party’s top leadership is good or bad, if one of the parties displaces the party. court. The LJP is a party recognized by the Election Commission and is guided by the party constitution, ”Shrivastava told HT.
Paswan was “removed from his post” as chairman of the LJP early last week, and party loyalist Suraj Bhan Singh was appointed chairman-in-office.
Later in the week, Bhan announced that Paras had been appointed the new party chairman.
Subsequently, five of the party’s six Lok Sabha MPs declared Paras as their leader.
Lok Sabha’s secretariat then issued a notification, recognizing Paras as the leader of the parliamentary party.
An LJP leader said HT that Paswan’s meeting on Sunday was essential in establishing that even though he has lost parliamentary party support, he still has executive support.
He also said that the results of the meeting could be used to fight Paswan’s case in the EC.
