JD-U announces new chief, hits out at BJP over Arunachal episode
JD-U announces new chief, hits out at BJP over Arunachal episode

Patna, Dec 27 (TIWN) Bihar's ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) on Sunday expressed its deep resentment at the BJP for taking away their six MLAs in Arunachal Pradesh, saying it was against the coalition's understanding.

"The act of the BJP is against the spirit of the coalition pact. Its leaders should have learnt from the coalition in Bihar where we (JD-U and BJP) are in power for 15 years and we did not attempt anything like this. The act of the BJP has created huge anger among our top leadership in the party and they have openly condemned the move of saffron party," party's national spokesperson K.C. Tyagi said.  "The coalition pact was started in 1968 during Ram Manohar Lohia and it was flourished during the tenure of Atal Bihari Vajpayee government when 24 parties and Omar Abdullah, Mamata Banerjee, and other leaders were part of the coalition. There was no conflict like this happening that time. The current BJP regime has not worked in the spirit of coalition in Arunachal Pradesh. It is highly unacceptable," he said.
