The RJD has fielded two candidates - its national spokesman and Ashfaq Karim, who runs a medical college in Katihar district of the state.

"While distributing tickets for the Rajya Sabha, Lalu Prasad could find nobody from the communities to which Karpoori Thakur and Jagjivan Ram belonged nor did he deem any daughter of worthy enough," Sushil said in a tweet.
