Subscribe to Oneindia News

Saharsa, Oct 7 (UNI) Barring Delhi and Rajasthan, the JD(U) is contemplating to contest the coming assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh (MP) and Chhatisgarh all alone.

This was disclosed by the JD(U) national president Sharad Yadav during an informal chat with the UNI here during his stay.

Mr Yadav said the JD(U) would field its candidates in MP and Chhatisgarh assembly elections, ruling out any tie-up with the BJP in the states as the NDA was non-existent assembly level.

However, in other states, including Delhi and Rajasthan, the JD(U) would jointly contest with the BJP as both the constituent units of the alliance had shared seats in the assembly elections, apart from contesting unitedly.

The party was still to decide about the alliance in the coming assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.

The BJP National President Rajnath Singh, who was also in Sahrsa in due course of his one-day visit in Bihar, told newspersons that the NDA would contest the coming assembly elections in five states unitedly.

Both the leaders who joined each other later in the press conference maintained that the NDA would contest the coming Lok Sabha elections unitedly. They said the ''misdeed'' of the UPA government would be the prime poll plank for the NDA in the parliamentary elections.

''The NDA will stage a comeback at the Centre'' claimed Mr Rajnath Singh, stating that the achievements of the BJP government in the seven states would go in favour of NDA in the coming Lok Sabha elections.
