Two alliance partners attacking each other in Bihar

Patna: War of words have begun between two alliance partners in Bihar, the Janta Dal(U) and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD)l, even before the completion of one year in office. It all began with attack on Janata Dal (U) president and chief minister Nitish Kumar by two leaders of the latter.

Of the two, Raghu Prasad Singh who has been an ardent supporter of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, has been more vocal. He has gone to the extent of demanding withdrawal of support from the government which may create a political crisis in the state.

The other party leader, Taslimuddin, who has not been as outspoken, has asked Nitish not nurse prime ministerial ambition like the proverbial Mungeri Lal and to concentrate on Bihar.

Hitting back, JD(U) spokesman, Sanjay Singh, has demanded suspension of these two from the party as their remarks are against the “ gathbandhan dharma( alliance rules)”.

Later, taking a note , Lalu warned them against airing the views in public. Nitish’s image as a man who could resign in a jiffy if something is unacceptable to him might have made Lalu act.

But the fact that for him the public criticism does not matter much is clear read in the context of selection of party nominee for the state’s upper house. Wife of a noted criminal who has been in jail and who is alleged to be behind recent murder of a journalist has been chosen as a party nominee.
