RLSP chief and former Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha on Wednesday announced that he would contest from two parliamentary constituencies in Bihar.
"I will contest from Karakat and Ujiarpur Lok Sabha seats," Mr Kushwaha, the sitting Lok Sabha lawmaker from Karakat, said in Bihar capital Patna after announcing party candidates for the other seats the Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) is contesting.
There is a demand and pressure from people in both seats to contest polls, he added.
According to RLSP leaders, Mr Kushwaha's wife has been campaigning in Karakat seeking support and vote for her husband. Ujiarpur is currently held by the Bharatiya Janata Party.
The RLSP, part of the opposition Grand Alliance comprising the Rashtriya Janata Dal, the Congress, the Hindustani Awam Morcha and the Vikassheel Insaan Party, has fielded Akash Singh, son of senior Congress leader Akhilesh Singh, in East Champaran, ignoring angry protests by party workers in Motihari.
