Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has vowed that the JD-U would contest the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls next year.
Notably, the SP had walked out of the RJD-JD-U alliance in Bihar last year, straining relations between Nitish Kumar and Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Recently, Nitish Kumar mooted the idea of an opposition grand alliance at the national level to take on the BJP-led NDA government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2019 general polls.
Nitish Kumar said the opposition parties have to be united in the country to fight against the BJP. “All non-BJP parties have to unite. It is the need of the time.”
In a bid to portray a united front ahead of the 2017 state Assembly elections, the ruling SP presented a united picture on Thursday as UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav embarked on the first phase of the ‘Samajwadi Vikas Path Yatra’.
