Alliance with JD-U will be intact: BJP

The BJP Monday said its alliance with the JD-U will be "intact" despite differences with Bihar CM.

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Monday said its alliance with the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) will be "intact" despite differences with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
"We are meeting today (Monday) to sort out the issues with the JD-U and not to aggravate it. Our alliance with the JD-U would be intact," party spokesman Ramnath Kovind told reporters here.

He said the JD-U-BJP government in Bihar had carried out a lot of development work over the past five years and the party would not like to break the alliance "simply on this emotional issue".

A miffed Nitish Kumar Saturday returned to Gujarat the Rs.5 crore given for flood relief in Bihar after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi went public with it during a BJP leadership meeting here last week.
Since then, the two sides have been locked in a war of words, triggering fears that their alliance may snap ahead of assembly elections this year.
