Patna: Days after raising a banner of revolt, LJP President Ramvilas Paswan’s son-in-law Anil Kumar Sadhu today made peace with him and withdrew the remarks he made against the Union Minister and his son Chirag Paswan in a vicious attack on them after being denied a poll ticket.
Sadhu had even become emotional and broke down on TV with tears rolling down his cheeks after making a blistering attack on the father-son duo. He had also announced his decision to field Dalit Sena candidates in all the districts in poll-bound Bihar to defeat NDA nominees.
He announced his patch-up with his father-in-law and Chirag at a press conference here.
“I take back all the comments made by me against Ramvilas Paswan and Chirag Paswan in the past,” Sadhu said.
“My complaint has been redressed after a talk with the two. Ramvilas Paswan is our leader as well as guardian,” he added.
Asked if he was planning to contest Raja Paker (reserved SC) seat in Vaishali from where the party has already named Ramvilas Paswan’s younger brother Pashupati Kumar Paras, Sadhu said, “The party will decide the matter.”
Paras has been fighting elections from two seats Alauli and Raja Paker, both reserved seats. Earlier, Sadhu had shown keenness to fight against Paras to avenge his “insult”.
He dimissed making any deal and asserted that “no deal is made within family.”
Sadhu was expecting nomination from Kutumba (reserved SC) seat in Aurangabad from LJP but the ticket went to partner Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) where former chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi’s son Santosh Kumar Suman has been named as NDA candidate.
Sadhu was later kicked out as chief of Dalit Sena, a pocket organisation of the downtrodden of the LJP chief.
