RJD’s Bima Bharti and Congress’ Pappu Yadav are adamant about contesting the Lok Sabha election from Bihar’s Purnea constituency, aggravating the difficulties for the two INDIA bloc partners.

Bima Bharti, who recently quit the JD-U, on Wednesday claimed that the RJD has given her the ticket from the Purnea seat while Pappu Yadav is saying that he will be contesting from the seat at “any cost”. The RJD, however, has not officially announced the name of the candidate for the Purnea seat.
