JD-U going solo in UP not to affect NDA: Sharad

Lucknow: JD(U) president Sharad Yadav on Wednesday said his party's decision to go solo in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections would have no effect on the NDA in which it is an alliance partner along with BJP.

"Though we have contested four elections with BJP, this time it was not possible. So we are going it alone and will be contesting on all the seats," he told reporters here.

Yadav said talks on UP polls were on with the BJP for two months but nothing emerged as they were having difficulties in taking decision, prompting JD(U) to go it alone.

The JD(U) leader said some of those who have been given entry into the BJP were not toeing the party ideology, but added that it was an internal matter of the BJP.

He said JD-U's decision would not have any impact on the NDA at the Centre because in all states, except four, NDA allies have been contesting separately.

Yadav said that besides him, Bihar Chief Minister Nitesh Kumar and members of his cabinet would campaign for JD-U in UP where the effort would be focus on development and justice besides providing an alternative to the people.

Asserting that there had been "one person rule" in Uttar Pradesh during the past 20 years, Yadav said all the four major political players - BSP, BJP, Congress and SP - were short of issues and were merely indulging in "qawali mukabala" (friendly fight).

"Our effort will be to tie the elephant, cycle, lotus and hand (poll symbols of BSP, SP, BJP and Congress respectively) and dump them in the Ganga," he said, adding he was sure the state would have a hung Assembly.
