After having fought with each other over possible candidature of Narendra Modi as prime ministerial candidate,alliance partners BJP and JD(U) on Friday joined together to attack the Centre on the Rs 12,000-crore Backward Region Grant Fund (BRGF) allocation in the 12th Five-Year Plan.
JD(U) state president Bashistha Narayan Singh said: We are not at all satisfied with what we got. The CM has already expressed his dissatisfaction over the matter. The UPA government has not done anything extra for us. Singh said no political meaning should be taken out of such central grants,which were formula-driven and given to several states to push development. The JD(U),however,did not launch an offensive against the Congress and reiterated its legitimate demands of special category status to Bihar.
