New Delhi, Sept. 19 (ANI): The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Saturday said that there is no space for the newly formed six party alliance led by Samajwadi Party (SP) in the Bihar politics, adding that the people of the state have decided to choose between two ‘poles’ in the upcoming elections.
RJD spokesperson Manoj Jha said that the contest in the Bihar elections is between the alliance led by RJD, JD (U) and Congress, which is for inclusive development, and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is led by ‘crony capitalists’.
“Any other alliance formed as an election fighting machine has no space in the Bihar politics. I will be surprised if they remain even in the footnote after the elections,” Jha told ANI.
“This third alliance calls themselves as secular alliance and they say that they have social credentials, they have failed to understand the message in Bihar,” he added.
Earlier today, six political parties including Pappu Yadav’s Jan Kranti Adhikar Morcha (JKAM) and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) forged an alliance under Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav to contest the upcoming Bihar Assembly polls.
NCP leader Tariq Anwar said that people of Bihar needed a third alternative as the other two alliances have failed the people.
Elections for the 243-member Bihar Assembly will be held in five phases between October 12 and November 5. Counting of votes will take place on November 8.
The term of the current Bihar Assembly comes to an end on November 29. (ANI)
