BJP MP Ajay Nishad's decision to join the Congress reverberated through Bihar's political landscape as he sought refuge with the opposition party following the denial of a ticket for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Nishad, hailing from Muzaffarpur, made his move official in New Delhi, amidst the presence of senior Congress leaders Pawan Khera, Mohan Prakash, and state Congress president Akhilesh Prasad Singh.

The shift in allegiance underscores Nishad's dissatisfaction over BJP's decision to replace him with Raj Bhushan Nishad in the party's fifth list of candidates. Having won Lok Sabha elections in 2014 and 2019 on BJP's ticket, Nishad's departure signals a significant loss for the ruling party. Meanwhile, his supporters aired grievances, attributing his denial of ticket to adverse feedback and staged protests during Union Minister Nityanand Rai's recent visit to Muzaffarpur. As BJP grapples with internal dissent over ticket distribution, Nishad's defection highlights the complexities shaping Bihar's electoral landscape.
