JD(U) under Nitish Kumar decides to become part of NDA

The JD(U) headed by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar passed a resolution at its national executive meeting to become part of the NDA.

Making the announcement, party leader K.C Tyagi categorically denied that there was any split in the party following differences with senior leader Sharad Yadav.

“The JD(U) national executive meeting chaired by party president Nitish Kumar approved a resolution to become part of the NDA,” the principal general secretary told.

The national executive also put its seal of approval on the Bihar JD(U)’s unit decision to walk out of the Grand Alliance with the RJD and Congress and join hands with the BJP to form a government in Bihar, Tyagi said.

“BJP president Amit Shah during a meeting with our (JD-U) president Nitish Kumar recently had urged him to bring the JD(U) into the NDA. The national executive committee approved it and now we have become part of NDA,” Tyagi said.
