Janata Parivar splinter groups coming together

In the meeting, which was attended by JD (U) national president Sharad Yadav, Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav, former Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad, consensus was reached on the merger of all splinters of Janata Parivar.

According to sources, the unification will start after January 15 as the month of kharmas (inauspicious) will come to end on Makar Sankranti, which will be celebrated on January 14.

While talking to reporters, after the meeting, JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar on Saturday said, “The merger of Janata Parivar is on the cards. Today, we all met to discuss issues like flag and symbol of the proposed outfit.”

“We had earlier taken a decision about merging our parties and Mulayam Singh was authorised to take the proposal forward. We sat together today in this regard. He will speak to the JD(S) president and INLD leaders and we will have a formal meeting,” Kumar said, describing their meeting as informal. While talking to Millennium Post, JD (U) leader KC Tyagi said, “All  parties have agreed to the merger and the good news will come soon.”

There are suggestions that JD (U) and RJD may merge before the grand merger of five parties as a prolonged delay may be detrimental to their interest in Bihar which is headed for polls later this year and they face a stiff challenge from a rejuvenated BJP.
