ITANAGAR, March 10 - Bihar�s ruling Janata Dal (United) or JD(U), has decided to contest the ensuing Assembly election in Arunachal Pradesh without any pre-poll alliance.

The party will field candidates in majority of the seats, JD(U) general secretary and in-charge of North East Afaque Ahmed Khan told reporters here recently.

JD(U) has adopted �development with justice� as its slogan for the election campaign in the State.

He, however, said that the party will not participate in the Parliamentary election in Arunachal, which is set to go for simultaneous polls to the Lok Sabha and State Assembly.

�The number of seats the party would contest as well as the names of the nominees would be announced at an appropriate time, he said. He added that the main criterion for selection is that candidates must be �taint-free�.

Chairman of North East Executive Council of JD(U), NSN Lotha said that although the party is national in outlook, but it is totally regional in approach. He clarified that JD(U)�s alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party is restricted to Bihar and that it would go solo in Arunachal Assembly polls.

He added that the chief of JD(U) and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is taking keen interest to expand the party�s base beyond Bihar.

Lotha said, �If voted to power, party�s first and foremost agenda would be to root out corruption, crime and communalism from the State under the leadership of JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar.

�The indigenous people of the State are today looking for a credible alternative as they have lost faith on both the BJP and the Congress. There is resentment against the ruling BJP for mis-governance and people are not seeing any hope in the opposition Congress party too,� Lotha alleged while stating that the JD(U) was an alternative to the two national parties.
