“The same school ground was used by JD(U) for its Adhikar rally in November last year and permission is not given to alliance partner to hold function of its national President,” he said and criticised behaviour of the party. “JD(U) minister Gautam Singh had displayed banners in the same ground and the party had put up pandals in the school ground during the Adhikar rally in support of special category status for Bihar,” he said.
