Patna: JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav today said
the alliance between his party and the BJP in Bihar would
remain intact and charged that some elements were operating
"from behind the scene" to create a rift between the allies.
"The JD(U)-BJP alliance is intact .... there are some
elements who are operating from behind the scene to create a
rift within NDA, but they will not not succeed," Yadav told
reporters here on his arrival from New Delhi.
When his attention was drawn to the proposed visit of
Congress president Sonia Gandhi and general secretary Rahul
Gandhi to Bihar, Yadav claimed their visit would not impact
the electoral prospects of NDA which was "set to stage a
comeback" in the state.
"Frequent visits of central ministers will not find much
favour as people have already made up their mind to give the
NDA another chance for all-round growth of Bihar," he said.
The JD(U) president also dismissed the charge of Congress
ministers in the Manmohan Singh government that Nitish Kumar
government had failed to utilise funds made available by the
Centre under various projects.
"The Centre gave only Rs 1000 crore against the state`s
demand for Rs 14000 crore for relief and rehabilitation of
Kosi flood victims," he said and accused the Centre of meting
out step-motherly treatment to states ruled by non-Congress
The JD(U) leader, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and
Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi later flew to Gidhaur to attend
the `shradh` of former union minister Digvijay Singh, who
passed away in London recently.
