"After me, Chirag Paswan will head the LJP. Chirag has the capability to lead the party," the Union Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution told his party's two-day convention at Rajgir in Nalanda district on Friday.
Chirag Paswan is the LJP MP from Jamui and heads the party's parliamentary board. Before embracing politics, Chirag Paswan tried to make a career in Bollywod but failed to click.
In Bihar, the LJP is widely known as a 'Parivar' party.
The LJP won six seats in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls
