Bihar deal sealed after Sonia Gandhi talks 31.7.2014 Asian Age: India
A political observer said: “Though the (Bihar) alliance on paper looks formidable, as this will rule out a split in Muslim (16 per cent) votes, the Yadav (15 per cent), Mahadalit (16 per cent) and Yadav-MBC (22 per cent) contradictions do not augur well for the new political formation.” It is learnt the RJD-JD(U)-Congress deal was sealed after talks between Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, former Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and RJD president Lalu Yadav. JD(U) Bihar president Basistha Narayan Singh told reporters in Patna that the party will field its candidate on Parbatta, Mohania (SC), Jale and Hajipur seats, while RJD state president Ramchandra Purbey said his party will contest Chapra, Mohiuddinagar, Rajnagar (SC) and Banka seats.

JD-U, RJD, Congress seal Bihar pact to fight BJP 31.7.2014 Asian Age: India
In a bid to counter an upbeat BJP, which trounced them in the recent Lok Sabha elections, the JD(U), RJD and Congress on Wednesday announced the formation of a “grand secular allian-ce” for Assembly bypolls for 10 seats in Bihar that will be held next month. As per the seat-sharing arrangements reached by these parties, the JD(U) and RJD will contest four seats each while the Congress will field candidates in two seats. As the bypolls are considered a semi-final before next year’s crucial Assembly elections, the joining hands by these three parties was annou-nced by the state chiefs of JD(U), RJD and Congress Basistha Narayan Singh, Ramchandra Purbey and Ashok Chau-dhary at a joint press conference in Patna. Political observers feel their coming together at this juncture shows desperation. They also expres-sed doubts over the effectiveness of such an alliance, as there exist “acute caste contradictions” at the grassroots. It is learnt that the deal was sealed finally after talks were held between ...
