New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday dismissed the petition of Lok Jan Shakti Party (LJP) leader Chirag Paswan against the decision of Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birls’s decision to appoint Pashupati Kumar Paras as the leader of LJP in the lower house of Parliament. The court said that the petition was without any merit.

Paswan had filed a petition in the court and had asked his uncle’s name to be removed as the leader of the party.

The son of former minister Ram Bilas Paswan has been involved in a power tussle with his uncle over the control of the party.

In the plea, Paswan had asked the court to review the decision made by the Lok Sabha speaker to appoint Paras as the leader of the party in the Lok Sabha.

Earlier, he had also threatened that he would go to court if his uncle was inducted as a minister under the new cabinet expansion.

He said that Paras could not be appointed as a minister as he was expelled by the party’s highest decision-making body.

Paswan also claimed that 66 out of the 75 national legislators of the LJP national executive were with him.

The 38-year-old is currently on a tour of Bihar which he has named ‘Aashirvaad Yatra’.
