The Congress-Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) understanding in Bihar will likely face more trouble in the days ahead. The two parties came to an agreement that Alinagar's Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) Abdul Bari Siddiqui would contest the Darbhanga seat, leaving two-term incumbent Kirti Jha Azad fuming. Azad, who won on the BJP ticket in 2014, recently jumped ship and joined the Congress. The Congress brass is looking for a seat to accommodate Azad. He is unlikely to be fielded from nearby Madhubani or Jhanjaharpur either, with the RJD firmly dismissing his candidature.
