Congress today dubbed the BJP-JD(U) infighting ahead of Assembly polls in Bihar as a fratricidal war,which it said showed that the NDA was a naturally dissolving alliance.
This is a fratricidal war. We are making no comments. It shows NDA is a naturally dissolving alliance, party spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan told reporters at the AICC briefing here when asked whether Congress was ready to do business with JD(U).
The reactions of the ruling party came on a day when BJP sent mixed signals to its ally JD(U).
BJP made clear that conditions like keeping Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and Varun Gandhi away from the election campaign in Bihar for continuance of the coalition were not acceptable to it and also indicated that it was keen on continuing the tie-up in mutual interest.
BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain has said BJP wanted to continue with the coalition for the development of Bihar but would not compromise on self-respect.
