Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is confident of bringing back Mulayam Singh Yadav back to the grand alliance against the BJP led National Democratic Alliance in Bihar, after the Samajwadi Party (SP) chief walked out yesterday over not being consulted over seat sharing for the upcoming assembly elections.
The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), an ally of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), has asked the BJP not to give tickets to those rebel legislators who had deserted their party in the past to join Nitish Kumar's Janata Dal United (JDU), in the upcoming assembly elections in Bihar.
Ahead of the much hyped rally being organised by Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar's Janata Dal United (JDU), Lalu Prasad's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), and the Congress in Patna tomorrow, the BJP has put up their hoardings right next to those put up JDU, to counter claims being made by the state government on various issues.
The BJP will seek a legal opinion on moving court for cancellation of Rashtriya Janata Dal chief and former Bihar chief minister, Lalu Prasad's bail, as he was doing politics in breach of bail terms, said former Bihar deputy chief minister and BJP leader, Sushil Kumar Modi.
The appointment of Ram Nath Kovind as Governor of Bihar has come in for criticism by the ruling Janata Dal United (JDU), sources close to chief minister Nitish Kumar say that he was not consulted by the Centre before taking the decision.
