In his first reaction after his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras ousted him as the leader of the party in Lok Sabha, LJP president Chirag Paswan on Tuesday likened the organization to a mother who should not be “betrayed”.

Paswan, who has also been removed from the post of the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) national president after an emergency meeting of the LJP national working committee, said in a tweet, that he had made efforts to keep the party founded by his father Ram Vilas Paswan and his family together but failed. People are supreme in a democracy, Paswan said and thanked those who have kept faith in the party.

Suraj Bhan will take over as the working president until a new president is elected, NDTV reported.

On Monday, five of the six LJP MPs in Lok Sabha rebelled against Paswan and elected Paras, the youngest brother of Paswan’s late father and party founder Ram Vilas Paswan, in his place, causing a big churn in Bihar politics. The Lok Sabha Secretariat on Monday evening recognised Paras as the leader of the LJP in the House, a day after the five MPs informed Speaker Om Birla about their decision.
