Saharsa: Some assembly seats would
be swapped between ruling NDA partners JD(U) and BJP in the
November assembly polls in Bihar, JD(U) national president
Sharad Yadav said on Sunday.
The formula for the swapping would be worked out through
discussions between the two parties for better electoral
result, he told newsmen at the conclusion of his three-day
visit to the state.
The swap had become necessary following change in the
demographic profile of some of the constituencies after
delimitation, he said adding the relation between the two
coalition partners in Bihar was strong.
On the ongoing political drama in Jharkhand, Yadav
regretted that there has been a festering political
instability in the mineral-rich state ever since its
bifurcation from Bihar a decade ago and sought to blame JMM
for the prevailing impasse.
"The JMM has simply not been consistent in its stand nor
has it displayed political clarity and maturity and has thrown
the state into state of paralysis," he said and accused
corporate houses for the prolonged instability in the state.
Yadav also sought to take away the gloss of the
celebrations of the UPA II government on completion of its one
year in the office and charged Prime Minister Man Mohan
Singh of being a `mute spectator` to corruption by
He sited the auction for 3G spectrum by the telecom
ministry and alleged that the concerned minister has allegedly
embezzled Rs one lakh crore during the auction process.
``This amount is more than the annual budget of
Bihar, he said adding the UPA was greedy for power and so it
had ignored vociferous demands from various quarters for an
investigation in the alleged spectrum scam, he said.
