SP feud has no impact in Bihar: JD(U)
Watering down the speculations that family feud in Samajwadi Party (SP) might have adverse impact in Bihar, JD(U) on Wednesday asserted that it would not have any impact in Bihar. “The party has no interest to “add fuel to fire” for taking advantage over it in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh poll. The feud within SP does not have any kind of impact in Bihar,” said state JD (U) president Basistha Narayan Singh.
In reply to a question about benefits the JD(U) would get in case of split within SP in coming UP polls, Singh said, “The party has no interest in adding fuel to fire to derive political gains”.
On raging infighting within Mulayam Singh Yadav-led SP, the JD (U) state chief said that they wished the feud ended at the earliest.
“We desire that there should be no dispute anywhere in the socialist force,” said Singh, who is a close confidante of Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) national president Nitish Kumar.
Singh was talking to reporters in Patna after former Lok Sabha Speaker PK Sangma’s National People's Party (Bihar unit) led by Sanjay Verma merged with JD(U).
The Bihar JD(U) president said that the party’s national council meeting at Rajgir recently had expressed desire that Nitish Kumar should lead the efforts to unite socialist forces.
