A JD(U) legislator has opposed an alliance between his party and RJD for the Bihar assembly elections, but senior party leader Nitish Kumar on Monday said that there was a possibility of a tie-up, including with Lalu Prasad’s party, against the BJP.
Rajiv Ranjan, JD(U) MLA from Islampur in Kumar’s native Nalanda district, shot off a letter to the party opposing a tie-up with RJD.
“I have written a letter to state JD(U) President Basistha Narayan Singh expressing strong reservation against the tie-up with RJD against the ‘jungle raj’ (lawlessness) of which we came out to form our own party earlier,” the JD(U) MLA told PTI.
Ranjan claimed that over 60 JD(U) legislators held the same view and there would be a strong reaction if the tie-up took place.
Former chief minister Nitish Kumar said though no structured talk of alliance with any party had been held, there was a ‘possibility’ of it with parties opposed to BJP politics.

“In view of political situation emerging in Bihar and the country, there is a possibility of understanding between parties which do not like the brand of politics of BJP,” Kumar told reporters.
He was in favour of an alliance among JD(U), RJD, Congress and Left to defeat BJP in the state assembly elections next year.
Stating that he was unaware of the letter written by Ranjan and would collect the details, Kumar said “If JD(U) decides on an alliance it will be binding on everyone.
“Those not agreeing with the decision will be free to leave the party,” he said.
