Five of Nitish’s men ‘bombard’ Lalu: Is the end of grand alliance near?
PATNA: Is the ruling grand alliance heading for collapse in Bihar?
According to reports in local media, the JD-U led by chief minister Nitish Kumar may take some harsh decision at a meeting of the party’s national executive to be held on July 23.
Unnamed sources told news channel ETV that at the meeting the party could authorize the chief minister to take any decision to suit the JD-U.
The RJD too is apprehensive of the fact and has announced that the masses will not forgive those breaking the alliance.
That the JD-U is “prepared” for the challenging step became clear on Monday when as many as five party spokespersons “bombarded” on the RJD at close intervals for questioning Nitish Kumar’s move and asked the RJD chief to expel those speaking against the chief minister.
“Nothing less than expulsion of the leaders will be acceptable to us,” warned spokesman Sanjay Singh.
The JD-U spokespersons who launched attacks on the RJD included Ajay Alok, Sanjay Singh, Neeraj Kumar, Rajiv Ranjan and KC Tyagi.
JD-U has supported NDA’s presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind against opposition’s Meira Kumar who has the support of 17 parties, including the Congress and the RJD.
All the three parties are partners in the ruling Bihar Grand Alliance.
