Patna: Lok Sabha member Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav, who was expelled by the RJD for six years for anti-party activities, on Sunday launched a new political outfit — Jan Kranti Adhikar Morcha.
“We have decided to launch a new political outfit for a third alternative in Bihar’s politics,” Pappu Yadav, the Lok Sabha member from Madhepura, told media persons here.
He said the new party would be different from Lalu Prasad’s Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Janata Dal-United of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
He claimed that hundreds of workers and leaders of the RJD, who felt ignored and sidelined, would join his party.
Pappu Yadav said his party will also contest the assembly polls.
Earlier this month, former chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi had also launched his new party, the Hindustan Awami Morcha, which he said will contest all 243 assembly seats in the coming polls.
