New Delhi, Sep 23 : Aiming to mark its presence in Delhi assembly, the Janata Dal (U) on Monday chalked out a strategy for the next year’s assembly elections, where the Bihar-based party has made clear that it would go alone in the upcoming polls.
A delegation of JDU of Delhi unit headed by state president Dayanand Rai paid a visit to Bihar Chief Minister and party’s national president Nitish Kumar in Patna and discussed the ways to select the best candidates for the polls. “The expansion of JDU beyond Bihar indicates that the people have accepted leader Nitish Kumar’s vision and model of development. We are certain that we would be able to perform well in the Delhi polls,” Delhi JDU spokesperson Satya Prakash Mishra said, who was also a part of delegation to visit to Mr Kumar.
The JDU also attacked the ruling Aam Aadmi Party for non-delivery of promises made during the election campaign in 2015 for the people of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
“The AAP has cheated the people from Bihar and UP. They have not fulfilled the promises till date whether it’s a matter of unauthorised colonies, sanitation or drinking water. They have failed on every front. This time people will teach them a lesson,” Mr Mishra added.
Recently, Dayanand Rai was elected unopposed as the party’s Delhi unit president and now they would focus on membership drive. The JDU had won seven seats in Arunachal Pradesh Assembly elections and became the second-largest party after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which swept to power in the Northeastern state.
Top functionaries of the party had told after Arunachal Pradesh polls that the main target of JDU is to become the national party. (UNI)
