Patna: Janata Dal (United) chief Sharad Yadav on Monday said it was for the BJP to ensure the opposition National Democratic Alliance (NDA) remains united.
The scathing remarks came in the wake of a war of words between the two alliance partners – both at the national level and in Bihar – over Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s probable candidature for the PM’s post in 2014 elections.
In an interview to a leading business daily, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of the JD(U) had called on the BJP to name its PM candidate for 2014 polls, while stressing the nominee should be ‘secular’.
The BJP had reacted adversely to those remarks. The RSS also hit back at Nitish while endorsing Modi.
Yadav today said unnecessary remarks were not good for the health of the NDA.
