New Delhi, Sep 12 (UNI) The BJP today distanced itself from comments Made by NDA Convenor George Fernandes against the Nitish Kumar-led government in Bihar saying the party did not share his perception.

Asked to comment on Mr Fernandes' criticism of the Bihar Government, BJP spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad said, ''The party did not share his perception.'' He also declined to comment on Mr Fernandes attending Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav's rally. ''The BJP does not want to get into internal affairs of another party,'' he added.

To a question if the JD (U) had sought removal of Mr Fernandes from the NDA Convenorship, he said no such demand was put before the alliance.

However, party sources said the BJP would not want to let down the Bihar government as it was its coalition partener in the state.

''We do not want to send wrong signals to party cadres across the country. At the same time, we do not want to get into the internal fights of other parties,'' the sources added.
