Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) leader and Jamui MP Chirag Paswan, who is locked in a dispute with his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras over control of the party, on Sunday announced to hold a roadshow across Bihar on the occasion of his father Ram Vilas Paswans birth anniversary on July 5.
"My fathers birth anniversary falls on July 5. My father and my uncle are not with me anymore. So, weve decided to take out an Aashirvaad Yatra from July 5 from Hajipur. The yatra will pass through all districts of Bihar. We need more love and blessings from the people," Chirag said.
The Jamui MP also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government to confer his late father with Bharat Ratna.
The demand was raised to confer the Bharat Ratna upon the late Ram Vilas Paswan and install a big statue of him in Bihar, he said.
