New Delhi: JD(U) Saturday said the differences
between Nitish Kumar and the BJP that had kicked up a
political storm in Bihar over a fortnight ago have been
resolved.

"The issue (differences between JD(U) and BJP) is on
track. The unfortunate incident of June 12 (when posters of
Nitish Kumar holding hands with Narendra Modi appeared in
Patna leading to cancellation of dinner hosted by the Bihar
Chief Minister for BJP leaders) is over now. It has passed
now," JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav told reporters here.

His comments came a day after Bihar Deputy Chief Minister
and BJP leader Sushil Modi accompanied Chief Minister Nitish
Kumar in the last leg of his `Vishwas Yatra` to Gaya district,
signalling a thaw in JD(U)-BJP ties.

Modi had earlier refused to join Kumar for the Yatra at
Paliganj in Patna protesting the Chief Minister`s decision to
return the Kosi flood relief money given by Gujarat Chief
Minister Narendra Modi.
