JD(U) expects win in 25 seats

State JD(U) President Mahima Patel stated that the party would field its candidates in 70 to 100 constituencies for the forthcoming Assembly elections in a couple of months, expressing confidence that at least 25 candidates would win.

"New faces are already identified in 20 constituencies. We would not join hands with any other party in the elections. All units of the party are dissolved, and the party is being reorganised," he said.

Speaking at the JD(U) workers' meeting held here on Wednesday, he noted that afforestation, employment generation in rural areas, and other issues would be in the agenda of the party.

JD(U) is in the hearts of the people, and it thinks about the welfare of the society. People's representatives lack concern about the environment, but Nitish Kumar's initiatives in Bihar have increased the forest cover there from 9% to 15%. Though 33% of area should have forest for a healthy environment, Karnataka has only 21% forest cover. Forest areas should be developed in each Gram Panchayat, and such an initiative has already taken up in Hassan district, Mr Patel said.

The JD(U) has a programme to create 50 lakh jobs in rural areas in five years, through garments and other industries. Giving pure air, water and poison-free food is also our objective. Scientists, scholars, and political experts are guiding the party to prepare a plan for the overall development of the State, he added.

JD(U) leaders J N Totad, K Shivaram, Lokpal Jain, Vinod Jadhav, Narayan Dhongadi, Shakuntala Shettar, and others were present.
