Legal battle for the control of the political party
Dr Ajay Kummar Pandey Advocate Supreme Court of India
After the passing of Ram Vilas Paswan, legal battles arose within his family over control of the party, its name and symbol. One battle, however, was unexpected, as it was initiated by the former Party President of Kerala, who attempted to cheat people in the name Ram Vilas Paswan.The Kerala Unit informed the party of the formation and functioning of the Ram Vilas Paswan Foundation, which was collecting money in Paswan's name and organizing an award ceremony in his memory.The first recipient of the Ram Vilas Paswan Lifetime Achievement award was announced to be M A Yusuff Ali, the Chairman of Lullu Group, India and Middle East. It was later revealed that this award was given as a quid pro quo for a large donation made to the former President of LJP Kerala.The Chief Guest at the function was Pashupati Paras, Union Minister, Govt of India. The party considered various legal options, including filing an interim stay or a civil suit, to stop the function from taking place.After analyzing the situation, it was decided to take a different approach to put an end to the issue once and for all. A complaint was drafted to the local police, alleging fraud, cheating, identity theft, impersonation, and forgery in the name of Ram Vilas Paswan. Despite initial hesitation, the police acted on the complaint after follow-up with senior officials.The man behind the criminal acts was called to the police station with supporting documents to explain his position. The incident was also brought to the attention of local newspapers and the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, to prevent the Union Minister from being involved in illegal and criminal activity that would damage the reputation of the NDA government led by Modi.Yusuf Ali was informed of the situation and requested to withdraw his name from the illegal activities. The organizers ultimately decided to cancel the function, promising not to interfere with the legacy of Ram Vilas Paswan. This was a hard-fought and well-deserved victory, demonstrating that solutions can be found outside of the courtroom also.
