JD-U showdown over party symbol may reach EC door 21.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The terse battle between warring Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leaders — Nitish Kumar and Sharad Yadav — is showing no signs of abating and may now lead to a showdown at the doors of the Election Commission (EC), to lay claim to party symbol 'Arrow'. Soon after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar put Sharad Yadav on notice on Sunday, daring him to split the party and face action in Patna, the Yadav faction hit back with the warning to approach the EC to stake claim to the party symbol. "Let Sharad Yadav split the party. For splitting the party, support of two-third leaders is needed. If he has the majority, he should prove it," Nitish said, showcasing the weight of all 71 MLAs, along with two Lok Sabha MPs, behind him. Nitish reminded Yadav that he was elected to the RS with the support and vote of the BJP. He said: "He will not be able to do anything. It is for all to see." He, however, stopped short of either suspending or dismissing Yadav from the party. Leader KC Tyagi later said the party did not act ...

JD(U) return to help NDA in other states 20.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
BJP president Amit Shah's surgical strike to lure Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar into the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) fold will go down in history as the shrewdest political operation undertaken with a clinical precision and twin objectives. It not only got the politically significant state of Bihar in his kitty, but also eliminated the most potent potential challenge to Prime Minister Modi in the 2019 general elections. With the JD(U)'s formal re-entry into the NDA, there is a possibility that its leaders will get two ministerial berths — one Cabinet and one Minister of State position — at the Centre. This political operation is bound to cast a shadow on Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, which are due for elections in November and December, respectively. The move will also have a lasting effect on other states going to polls in 2018, namely Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Rajasthan, and Tripura. Many Opposition leaders now look at the 70-year-old socialist ...

4 years after parting ways, JD(U) does 'ghar wapasi' to NDA 20.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal(United) did a 'ghar wapasi' to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on Saturday, nearly four years after it dumped the saffron party over Narendra Modi's selection as the prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. In the presence of chiefs of 16 state units, 71 MLAs, 30 MLCs, and 16 of the 19 office-bearers, the party approved the Bihar unit's decision to quit Mahagathbandhan and passed a resolution, accepting BJP President Amit Shah's invitation to join the NDA, clearing decks for elevation of senior party leaders as Union Cabinet ministers in the coming days. "During his last visit to Delhi, our President, Nitish Kumar, had received an invitation from Shah to join the NDA. We have passed the resolution at our national executive council meet, and are now a part of the NDA," party general secretary and spokesperson KC Tyagi said while addressing the media at the state JD(U) headquarters in Patna on Saturday.

Nitish dares Sharad Yadav to split JD(U) 19.8.2017 Deccan Herald - National
Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar on Saturday dared rebel Rajya Sabha MP and former party chief Sharad Yadav to split the JD(U). Launching a blistering attack during the national executive committee meeting here, Nitish reminded Sharad how he persuaded George Fernandes, the then JD(U) president, to send him (Sharad) to the Rajya Sabha when he lost the Lok Sabha polls in 2004. "We have 71 MLAs, 30 MLCs, besides two MPs in the Lok Sabha. Sharadji, if you have guts and courage, please try to split the party. Not one MLA or MLC is with you. And the one MP who is with you (in reference to rebel MP Ali Anwar), please remind him that he went to the Upper House with the support of BJP MLAs in 2012. If you dare to split the party, you will lose even your membership because you know you don't have the two-thirds majority to effect a split," said Nitish. Earlier in the day, the JD(U) passed a resolution saying that the party was joining the BJP-led NDA as it was not possible to run the grand ...

Shah welcomes JD(U)'s move to join NDA 19.8.2017 Deccan Herald - National
BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday welcomed the Nitish Kumar-led JD(U)'s decision to join the NDA and said that it will unleash "a new era of development" in the state that will be crucial to approach its "mission 350" in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The JD(U) at its national executive meeting in Patna took a formal decision to join the NDA, a homecoming after four years when Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had quit the coalition to object the BJP's decision to project Narendra Modi as the prime ministerial candidate. "I welcome the JD(U)'s decision to join the NDA, as this will not only strengthen the NDA but will also begin a new era of development and growth in Bihar," Shah said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to reward the JD(U) by giving its Bihar ally a share in council of ministers that has space due to existing vacancies in defence, environment and urban development ministries, which arose after Manohar Parikkar became the chief minister of Goa, Anil Dave's death and M Venkaiah ...

Break the JD(U) legislative party if you have might: Nitish Kumar dares Sharad Yadav faction 19.8.2017 DNA: Top News
Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar on Saturday said party leader Sharad Yadav was "free" to take his decision and asserted that the "straying of a handful of people" would have no impact on the party as battle lines between the two factions appeared drawn. He dared the Yadav loyalists, who had claimed that the "original" JD(U) was with them, to "break" the party. "Break the JD(U) legislative party if you have the might...prove a two-thirds majority within the party for breaking it, otherwise your membership will go," Kumar said, throwing a challenge to his detractors, led by Yadav. He questioned Yadav's protest over the decision to part ways with the Grand Alliance in Bihar. "Why did you (Yadav) not speak up in 2013 when the party broke away from the NDA? You were the president of the party at that time," he said. Addressing an open session after the JD(U) national council and national executive meets, Kumar said speaking up after the development was of no importance. Making a veiled ...

JD(U) joins NDA after 4 years, Sharad faction appeals people to keep Grand Alliance intact 19.8.2017 DNA: Top News
As expected, the JD(U) faction led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday decided to be part of the NDA, returning to the BJP-led alliance four years after it snapped the 17-year-old ties with the saffron party. The decision to return to the NDA fold was taken in a resolution approved at a meeting of the national executive of the JD(U) here chaired by Kumar, who is the party president. "The national executive meeting of JD(U) chaired by party president Nitish Kumar approved a resolution to become part of NDA," its principal general secretary K C Tyagi said. The JD(U) has two MPs in the Lok Sabha and 10 in Rajya Sabha. While the two in Lok Sabha are with Kumar, three of its Rajya Sabha MPs--Sharad Yadav, Ali Anwar Ansari and M P Veerendra Kumar of Kerala--are opposed to him. The ruling alliance comprised 32 parties before JD(U) decided to join it. In a dramatic development on July 26, Nitish Kumar resigned as chief minister dumping the RJD and Congress to stitch a new alliance with BJP and was sworn ...
