JDU and BJP decide on seat sharing

NDA partners BJP and JD(U) on Monday finalised seat adjustments for the Bihar assembly polls. The JD(U) is expected to contest on 141 and BJP on 102 assembly seats in Bihar.

Seat Sharing Arrangement for 2010 Assembly Elections 2010

JDU : 141 Seats

BJP: 102 Seats

Seat Sharing Arrangement in 2005 Assembly Elections Was

JDU : 138 Seats

BJP: 103 Seats

Currently, the JD-U has 81 sitting legislators and the BJP 54. This arrangement was agreed by JD(U) president Sharad Yadav and chief minister Nitish Kumar. However, there is hitch on some seats which have been reorganised by the delimitation commission.  About a dozen MLAs of both JD(U) and BJP are likely to be denied ticket.

The Congress list of candidates was expected by Sep 20 but now by all indications it will be declared by Sep 25. Party sources said the screening committee for Bihar was yet to finalise its recommendations for 103 seats that will go to the polls in the last three phases. The recommendations will be sent to the Congress' Central Election Committee (CEC), headed by party chief Sonia Gandhi, for final clearance.

BJP, JD(U) set to fight Bihar polls together

July 1 : NEW DELHI: With some give-and-take, the turmoil in BJP-JD(U) ties seems to be ebbing as the two gear up to carry their alliance into the forthcoming assembly elections. While JD(U) is agreeable to the seat-sharing formula between the allies in 2005, its sensitivities over leaders like Narendra Modi -- or, on a lesser scale Varun Gandhi -- campaigning in the Bihar assembly polls will be kept in mind by its saffron ally.

The differences that cropped up between the two parties over the controversial advertisements relating to the "help" extended by the Gujarat government to Bihar after the Kosi floods soured relations but both sides seem to realize that a break in ties may not suit either. JD(U) would be worried over the possibility of central rule if the Nitish Kumar government were to lose majority and may also not be ready for the huge gamble of going it alone in the polls. Switching partners is also a fraught prospect.


BJP has its problems too. Losing a major ally will be a sharp mood downer for the Opposition party, yet to recover from a bad miscalculation in Jharkhand. Not only would BJP on its own have no real chance, it would make BJP president Nitin Gadkari's already indifferent report card look worse. The JD(U) leadership has conveyed that it is prepared to repeat the 2005 deal and that Varun Gandhi or Narendra Modi "type" of leaders had not been part of the campaign then.

BJP is not expected to publicly own up any such understanding but not deploying certain leaders is not a very difficult decision for the party as their utility in the assembly election is anyway limited. It does BJP no harm if JD(U)'s efforts to woo minorities pays some dividends while it looks to consolidate upper castes behind the alliance. The saffron party can maintain an arm's length over JD(U)'s Muslim outreach while Nitish Kumar does the same over his partner's Hindutva aspects.

By indicating that he was ready to go along with the seat-sharing of 2005, Kumar has certainly made a concession to his partner as he had been pushing for more seats in view of the perception that BJP's strength has dwindled in the bypolls. The calculation in certain quarters that JD(U) could exploit a weak field, with upper castes split between BJP and Congress and Lalu-Paswan also chipping in, is seen to be risky.

Modi praises Bihar government, ignores Nitish

June 14 : A day after he was snubbed, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi Sunday ignored Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar even as he praised the state government for its development agenda.

In his speech on the closing day of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national executive meeting here, Modi paid handsome tributes to the Bihar government, an alliance of the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and the BJP.

"Bihar has progressed a lot. It took five years for the government in Bihar to revoke the damages caused by the previous (Lalu Prasad) government," he said. "I congratulate the people of Bihar."

Modi, one of the most high profile BJP leaders attending the two-day gathering, made no reference to Nitish Kumar in his speech, which received repeated applause from delegates from around the country.

Nitesh Upset on BJP ad in Bihar showing Nitish and Modi togather

 

June 13: A day after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar voiced displeasure over newspaper advertisements showing him with Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, pressure was building within his Janata Dal-United (JD-U) party Sunday to snap ties with alliance partner Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Two JD-U MPs -- Monazir Hasan and Rajiv Ranjan -- suggested that the chief minister sever ties with the BJP. Upset over the advertisement, Nitish Kumar had Saturday cancelled a dinner he was to host for BJP top leaders, who are here to attend a two-day meeting of the party's national executive. He also threatened legal action against the agency that released the full-page advertisements in vernacular dailies.

 

RJD Against Women Reservation Bill, JDU For it,
Lalu Yadav Threatens to Withdraw support from NDA

9th March 2010

Lalu Prasad Yadav Against the Women's reservation bill in parliament and rajya sabha threatened to withdraw support from the centre NDA alliance if the bill is passed without modfications stating reservation for OBC's and Muslims in it.

The long-held belief of Rajya Sabha being the House of solemnity and intellectual superiority can lay in rest as a stunned nation on Monday watched chairperson Hamid Ansari getting nearly assaulted by a bunch of Samajwadi Party and RJD members, hell bent on getting their voice heard through intimidation.

Given the earlier protests by SP and RJD over women's quota Bill, disruptions were expected. But few had thought it would take the form it did, with SP's Nandkishore Yadav rushing up to the Chairman. By the time Ansari adjourned the House, mikes on his table were removed and papers snatched.

The assault on the Chairman of Rajya Sabha was led by Subhash Yadav (RJD), Rajniti Prasad (RJD), Kamal Akhtar (SP) and Ejaz Ali (JD-U). No one from the treasury benches rushed to save Hamid or at least intervene to save the situation.

Though Nitish Kumar from JDU continued to support the bill. Even as the issue of support to the women's reservation Bill in Parliament led to fissures in Bihar's ruling JD(U) with CM Nitish Kumar and party chief Sharad Yadav falling foul with each other, Nitish on Monday reiterated his support to the Bill.
He said "There's no change in my stand. There are certain people who are criticising me but I am firm and ready to face its consequences,'' Nitish said during a function of the party's women cell on Women's Day.
The women cell chief, Usha Sinha, said what prompted the UPA government to bring the women's Bill in Parliament was the introduction of 50% reservation for women in Bihar panchayat and civic bodies by the Nitish government. "The credit for the Bill for reservation in the legislature therefore goes to the CM,'' she said.

 

JDU may Split, Nitish Kumar may break from JDU

 

With Nitish Kumar Supporting Women's reservation Bill and Sharad Yadav being against it, it seems Bihar Chief Minister might split from JDU. With coming State Assembly Elections in 4-5 Months in 2010. This political activity may lead to JDU weakning in Bihar. What Political shape it might take it yet not clear.Differences in the JD(U) over women's quota bill widened on Tuesday with five of the party members in the Rajya Sabha endorsing Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar's line to support the legislation. It's a development that can potentially split the party in the lead up to the assembly elections in the state. Nearly 17 out of 20 MP from JDU are with Sharad Yadav. This includes the upper caste members of Parliament, whom Nitish wanted to win back by his latest move

 

The support of Shivanand Tiwari, N K Singh, Ali Anwar, Mahendra Prasad and Bhagwan Sahni defied Sharad Yadav's opposition to the bill, and even as the party chief was mopping up the support of MPs nursing grudges of different hues against Nitish Kumar.

 

Interestingly, some of the MPs who have aligned themselves with the Sharad Yadav's stand to oppose the women's quota on the ground that it would tilt the electoral field against the OBCs, had earlier accused the chief minister of ignoring the interests of upper castes.

 

 

The Congress recently started youth membership drive in 16 districts across Bihar, with the aim of staging a comeback in the state. A vision of All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary Rahul Gandhi, the Youth Congress hopes to induct members in the agegroup of 18- 35 years to bolster the party ahead of the assembly elections to be held later in the year. More than a dozen young MPs, including ministers, will oversee the month- long campaign.

State party spokesman H. K. Verma said the Youth Congress drive had elicited tremendous response in Patna and other districts.

"Even though it was only the first day, a large crowd of membership aspirants turned up everywhere," he said.

Congress's Bihar in- charge Jagdish Tytler and Union minister of state for communication and information technology Sachin Pilot monitored the drive in the state capital.

Young guns of the Congress such as Jitin Prasada, Priya Dutt, Girish Sanghi, Arun Yadav, Vijay Inder Singhla, Arun Yadav and Pradeep Manjhi will be in charge in other constituencies.

Organisational polls of the Youth Congress are scheduled to be held in May.

Rahul wants the Youth Congress to be free of criminal elements and has entrusted the task of monitoring the elections to K. J. Rao, former adviser to the Election Commission of India.

Rao, who is at present associated with the Foundation for Advancement of Elections (FAME), earned praise for facilitating a free and fair assembly elections in Bihar in 2005.

It had sealed the fate of Lalu Prasad's Rashtriya Janata Dal, which had ruled the state for 15 years.

In a recent meeting with party workers at Sadaquat Ashram, the state Congress headquarters, Rao said he had taken up the responsibility to oversee the Youth Congress elections because Rahul had agreed to check the entry of criminal elements in the organisation and ensure transparency in its polls.

He also urged that other parties should emulate Rahul's decision.

Addressing a gathering on Tuesday, Pilot said anybody who had the talent, skill and commitment to work was welcome to join the Youth Congress.

"If you have these qualities, nobody can stop you from progressing in politics," he said.

Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee ( BPCC) president Anil Sharma said the idea behind the membership drive was to give a chance to the local, educated youth leaders to take part in the task of nation- building.

The Congress plans to field at least 40 per cent youth in the forthcoming electoral battle.
