Janata Parivar merger is a done deal, says Sharad Yadav
Janata Dal (United) president Sharad Yadav on Tuesday said the merger of the erstwhile Janata Parivar constituents was a done deal and Mulayam Singh Yadav has been announced its president.
“Merger of six constituents of the erstwhile Janata Party has already taken place and Mulayam Singh Yadav has been announced its President,” he said. Replying to a question that there <g data-gr-id="29">has</g> been talks of possibility of alliance due to technical hitch in the merger exercise, Yadav rubbished it saying “<g data-gr-id="24">Gathbandhan</g> ki <g data-gr-id="25">baat</g> <g data-gr-id="26">karna</g> <g data-gr-id="27">baimani</g> <g data-gr-id="28">hoge</g> (talking about alliance will be dishonesty)."
When asked that confusion prevailed over merger after Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Ram Gopal Yadav recently said that there was “no possibility” of it happening before the Assembly polls, the JD(U) leader said “whether somebody understands it or not the masses know that the merger has taken place”.
Sharad Yadav is a member of the six-member committee, constituted in April to sort out issues like common flag and symbol, that would submit its recommendations to Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, an architect in bringing six parties together, had on Monday ruled out any technical hitch in the merger process and said he would suggest Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav to convene a meeting of the merger committee to “clear the air”.
