Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav said on Monday that the assembly elections in Bihar could happen again. Addressing a review meeting held to discuss the reasons behind the party’s defeat in the recently held Assembly elections, Tejashwi said that elections could happen in Bihar again in 2021, so we should be ready for it.
Naming the BJP-JD (U) alliance as ‘temporary’, he said: “This alliance can be broken at any time and elections could occur, so we have to be prepared for the situation.”

Speaking to the media after the meeting, Yadav said: “All sections voted for us. In some seats, we lost due to internal enemies. Some people cheated for their personal gain and did not see the interest of the party. Enemy outside the match, but not those in the match. Therefore, we must be prepared for the next fight and stay united. “
He also hinted at a change in the party’s old tradition and said it is necessary now as it will not work well in the future.
The RJD leader said that there was also a discussion about the peasant protest at the meeting and it was said that all party workers have to take to the streets in support of the peasants.
All RJD MLAs, including State President Jagdanand Singh, the candidates who lost in the elections and senior party officials were present at the meeting.
According to sources, senior RJD leader Abdul Bari Siddiqui, citing the reasons behind the defeat, said that another reason behind the defeat was that the election agents were not present at the polling stations on time.
Before this meeting, Tejashwi Yadav went to Ranchi to meet his father and party chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.
