The infighting in the BJP was its internal matter and had nothing to do with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), the Janata Dal (United) has said.
“It is their internal matter, and we do not interfere in each other’s functioning. The NDA functions on the basis of a national agenda, agreed to by all the allies,” Sharad Yadav, who has been re-elected JD (S) chief, told HT.
Both the JD (S) and the BJP are part of the NDA.
Yadav (62) was elected the party chief for the second term at the party’s national convention on Tuesday.
Drought, price rise and corruption were the party’s main concerns, Yadav said.
Asked if his party, which has been uncomfortable with the BJP’s pro-Hindutva line, was worried over the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh’s growing hold on the party, he said: “We will keep our views before the BJP leadership and not the media.”
