NDA,a ‘naturally dissolving alliance’: Cong

Congress dubbed the BJP-JD(U) infighting ahead of Assembly polls in Bihar as a 'fratricidal war'.

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 way BJP was reacting to provocations by Nitish Kumar suggested that BJP wants to cling to the alliance,” was the refrain of another party leader,who preferred anonymity.

The reactions of the ruling party came on a day when BJP sent mixed signals to its ally JD(U).
