No possibility of alliance with JD(U): Lalu Prasad Yadav

Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Sunday denied that there was any move to forge an alliance with Bihar's ruling Janata Dal-United.

"There is no question and no possibility of an alliance with JD-U," Lalu told media persons following reports that there will be realignment of the RJD with arch rival JD-U.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar resigned on Saturday, taking moral responsibility for his party JD-U's rout in the Lok Sabha elections. The JD-U got barely two seats out of Bihar's 40 in the Lok Sabha.

JD-U general secretary K.C. Tyagi earlier Sunday said: "RJD will join the government after JD-U elects its new leader."

Lalu Prasad, however, said he will not join hands with the JD-U.

"It is baseless and a cooked story that I had talked with JD-U president Sharad Yadav about it," Lalu said.

Lalu said that after JD-U legislature party meeting Sunday, the RJD will hold a meeting of its leaders and legislators to discuss the situation in the state.
