United NDA needed to defeat Congress: Sushma Swaraj

With a split in Bharatiya Janata Party and JD-U appearing imminent, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj stressed that NDA needed to be together to defeat the Congress.



New Delhi: With a split in the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Janata Dal-United appearing imminent, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj on Friday stressed that National Democratic Alliance (NDA) needed to be together to defeat the Congress.

"Only a united opposition can defeat Congress. Whenever opposition got united, Congress was defeated," tweeted Sushma Swaraj, the leader of opposition in the Lok Sabha.

"Therefore, NDA`s unity is a historical necessity. We must do everything to keep NDA united," she said.

Janata Dal-United (JD-U) is upset over BJP leader and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi`s elevation to the post of the party`s campaign manager for 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

While the rift has publicly surfaced, the BJP so far maintained that the coalition is intact "for now".

Asked about the possibility of a split, BJP vice president Mukhtar Ababs Naqvi said the Bihar government is "functioning so far".

Party leader Ravishankar Prasad, meanwhile, said: "Our relationship is 18 years old, this whole idea came into being with a collective wish to ensure good governance in Bihar."
