BJP-JD(U) split unfortunate: Rajnath Singh
Reacting to the split of BJP and JD(U) earlier in the day, BJP President Rajnath Singh said that break-up of NDA is sad and unfortunate. Calling the BJP-JD (U) alliance as an emotional one, Singh asked whether appointing Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the electoral head of the party for the upcoming elections is his fault. The BJP President also defended Modi saying that such riots as in 2002 have taken place during the Congress regime too but the ruling party is never referred to as communal. Singh further said that this split happened at a time when the sole purpose of all the non-Congress party should have been to remove Congress from the power.
