Patna: JD(U) president Lalan Singh on Saturday announced that his party would go all alone in the forthcoming Uttar Pradesh and Manipur Assembly elections if NDA partners did not give JD(U) its due space.
Singh while addressing party workers here said that as per the wishes of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, he would work hard to make JD(U) a national party in the days ahead. To achieve this goal, JD(U) would contest Assembly elections in other states, he added.
“We will talk to our partners of NDA in other states to seek our due space and if it did not materialise, JD (U) would contest all alone in Assembly elections in Manipur and Uttar Pradesh,” Singh said adding that JD(U) had contested 15 seats in last Assembly elections in Arunachal Pradesh and won seven seats. It was a big achievement for JD(U) in a North Eastern state, he noted.
JD(U) president said that his party had won 115 seats in 2010 Bihar Assembly elections. His fight would be to bring back that glory of JD(U) in Bihar, he stressed.
Singh called upon JD(U) workers to propagate in public about the achievements of the Nitish Kumar government. All party workers should be well aware of the achievements of the government and inform the people accordingly, he added.
