Patna, Sept. 19 (ANI): Six political parties including Pappu Yadav’s Jan Kranti Adhikar Morcha (JKAM) and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) forged an alliance on Saturday under Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav to contest the upcoming Bihar Assembly polls.
Speaking on the occasion, NCP leader Tariq Anwar said that people of Bihar needed a third alternative as the other two alliances have failed the people.
“These elections are very important for the entire nation. Both the alliances have been given chance to do work in Bihar. People of Bihar gave both of them chance to rule but they have failed the people of the state,” Anwar said.
“I would like to thank Samajwadi Party for giving a third alternative to people of Bihar. If people of Bihar give us a chance, then we will do our best for the state,” he added.
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)
