Jitan Manjhi filed his nomination papers at the district magistrate’s office in Gaya on Thursday.


“Everyone contests elections for victory. I have been in politics for the past 44 years, and I still have some more time left in my political career. Today, I filed my nominations for the Gaya seat to contest the Lok Sabha elections. PM Narendra Modi has always given me respect, even when I was with the Mahagathbandhan,” Manjhi said.

“When the first meeting of the INDIA bloc was held in Patna, I had said that it would break one day and that is what is happening now. They haven’t even finalised the seat-sharing formula for Bihar,” Manjhi said.

In Gaya, Manjhi is pitted against RJD’s Kumar Sarvjeet, who also filed his nomination on Thursday.

Manjhi Vs Paswan

Jitan Ram Manjhi had contested from Gaya Lok Sabha in 1991, 2014 and 2019 unsuccessfully. Jitan Ram Manjhi as a Congress candidate was defeated by Rajesh Kumar in 1991 by a margin of 53,795 votes. Rajesh Kumar had won on Janta Dal ticket.

After 33 years Jitan Ram Manjhi is contesting as an NDA candidate against Rajesh Kumar’s son and INDIA Alliance candidate Kumar Sarvjeet from Gaya Lok Sabha seat. Kumar Sarvjeet is from Paswan caste.
