JD(U) ties up with INLD in Haryana

The Janata Dal-United (JD-U) has entered into an alliance with the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) led by Omprakash Chautala for the ensuing Assembly polls.

JD(U) party chief Sharad Yadav claimed that the alliance is part of the effort of uniting the Janata Dal parivar. “In an effort to unite the disintegrated Janata Dal parivar, it has been decided to go together in the ensuing Assembly elections in the state of Haryana,” Yadav said in a statement on Monday.

The JD(U) leader has been emphasising the need for such alliance ever since his party tied up in Bihar with Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal in the recent bypolls. He believes that this is the only way to fight the BJP.

“We have understood that the political challenges which have emerged recently can only be faced when the old Janata parivar comes together immediately, otherwise it will be too late,” he said in his statement.
  
 “Since the state of Haryana is an immediate neighbour of Delhi, it is in the fitness of things to bring back old Janata Dal parties together so that the message travels to the capital of the country to keep the dividing forces away from power,” the senior JD (U) leader said.
