Bihar government denies permission for Rajnath's meeting: BJP

Patna, June 14 : The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said the Bihar government has denied permission to the party from using a common ground in Patna for a meeting of its president Rajnath Singh.

"We did not get rally ground for Rajnath Singh's rally," Bihar BJP president Mangal Pandey told the media.

Rajnath Singh is scheduled to visit Bihar on June 23.

He was supposed to hold a meeting in Patna to discuss the growing split within the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Amid possible indications of a split within the NDA, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday said the relationship between his Janata Dal-United or [JD(U)] and the BJP is not good.

"The situation is very difficult...It is time to take a decision," Kumar told reporters on Friday.

The buzz of JD(U) calling off its alliance with the BJP is doing the rounds after Kumar convened a meeting with senior JD-U leaders in Patna on Tuesday evening and asked them to not leave the city for consultation in this matter.

The JD-U leaders have reportedly been asked to even contact independent MLAs and garner their support in JD-U's favour.

With the elevation of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the chief of the election campaign committee, the JD(U) has pepped up its attack on BJP and is considering the fact to break its alliance with BJP.

"We cannot compromise with the rioters of 2002," senior JD-U minister Narendra Singh earlier told media referring to Gujarat's 2002 communal riots during Modi's first term as CM, in which hundreds of Muslims were killed.

Singh said JD-U is not pleased with Modi's leadership and will soon announce their decision according to the demand of the situation.
