The joint opposition candidate Yashwant Sinha has a deep and long relationship with the BJP and his son Jayant Sinha, currently also a Lok Sabha MP from Hazaribagh in Jharkhand.

People and media have been questioning me since this announcement. I will request all of you. That you don’t see me as a son at this time, don’t make this a family affair.
“I am a BJP worker, a BJP MP from Hazaribagh. I understand my constitutional obligations and will fulfill it fully,” Jayant said, saying that he would fulfill his obligations towards the party instead of his father.
