Patna: The much talked about Left unity in the coming assembly polls in Bihar received a jolt on Monday with Indian People's Forward Bloc(IPFB) deciding to go it alone and contest 24 assembly seats in alliance with Jawan Kisan Morcha, a frontal organisation of the party.

IPFB state committee general secretary Napendra Krishna Mahto said that the party would contest 24 assembly seats as the three 'big brothers' --- CPI-ML (Liberation), CPI and CPI(M) had ignored the interests of smaller parties in the electoral seat adjustments in Bihar.

Mahto released a list of 21 candidates of IPFB and Jawan Kisan Morcha and said the party would announce the names of party candidates for the Kumhrar, Phulwarisharif and Konch seats in a day or two.
