UP assembly polls: JD-U's efforts for alliance with BJP yet to reap resultstext_fields
Janata Dal-United's efforts for a poll alliance with the ruling BJP in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections are yet to reap any results, say party leaders.
The party authorised Union Minister RCP Singh to hold alliance talks with the BJP and bag some seats but nothing has happened thus far, said JD-U Parliamentary Board President Upendra Kushwaha.
"The election schedule has been announced in Uttar Pradesh and the party has authorised R.C.P. Singh to do the job for the party. He is interacting with leaders of the BJP but positive results in favour of our party are not coming out," Kushwaha said.
"K.C. Tyagi, the national General Secretary of the party and incharge of Uttar Pradesh, rightly pointed out that BJP should address the issue in two days. He has to look after the organisation in Uttar Pradesh and accordingly make plans for the elections. The time is running out. So, the BJP should make a decision as early as possible. We are still waiting for the decision of the BJP," Kushwaha said.
