The comment comes after the Election Commission of India (ECI) on Saturday froze Lok Janshakti Party's symbol amid a tussle between factions of Chirag Pawan and Pashupati Kumar Paras.
The commission also said that the two factions can use free symbols available to field their candidates for the bypolls to two assembly seats in the coming days.
