JD(U) signals split with BJP

By The Assam Tribune

PATNA, June 14 � Ahead of its weekend review, JD(U) today gave clear signs yet again of an emerging split with BJP, saying there are problems and the situation is �difficult� even as a senior party leader lashed out at BJP, reports PTI.

Returning from a two-day �seva yatra� for consultations with the JD(U) leadership tomorrow over the alliance issue, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said, �The situation is such that there are problems (in continuing the alliance).�

He was replying to a question whether it is going to be the end of the 17-year alliance between JD(U) and BJP.

He said the situation is difficult and what is to be done in this difficult situation is being discussed by all. �On the one hand, some are giving suggestions that it is such an old alliance that it should continue. On the other hand, the conditions are such that there are problems,� he said.

While party chief Sharad Yadav appeared hopeful of a rapprochement, sources in the party described the situation as �a point of no return�.

In a clear indication of things to come, party general secretary Shivanand Tiwari accused BJP of �forcing� JD(U) to come out of NDA by projecting Narendra Modi.

�BJP wants that the blame for breaking the alliance comes on JD(U) but the fact is otherwise. We had made our stand clear long time back. Our opinion on Modi was well-known. We never invited Modi in Bihar for any election that the NDA fought there,� Tiwari said.

�Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had also made his opinion about Modi�s projection clear without naming him at the party�s national executive in Delhi some time back. Even after this, they made him the campaign committee chief and projected him as their leader. They are forcing us to quit the NDA,� Tiwari told PTI.
