Over five months after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar became president of the Janata Dal(United), four state presidents claimed here on Friday that his election to the top post was in violation of the party constitution. They argued that he had become the president before the completion of the organisational elections at all levels.
The four state unit chiefs who took this stand in public on Friday are Govind Yadav (Madhya Pradesh), Amitabh Dutta (West Bengal), Pramod Sharma (Uttarakhand) and Balbir Singh (Delhi).
Speaking on behalf of all of them, Yadav vowed to launch a struggle for “restoration of inner-party democracy in the JD(U)”.
