JDU to go alone in Jharkhand assembly polls
The Janata Dal (United), an NDA ally led by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, announced on Sunday that it would go it alone in the upcoming assembly elections in Jharkhand.
The party's Jharkhand unit chief Salkhan Murmu made the announcement in Patna a day after he held discussions with Kumar and the party's national vice-president and election strategist.
Assembly elections are due in Jharkhand by the end of this year. Murmu said that "We are looking forward to contesting as many seats as possible, depending on the number of winnable candidates we get. We are not averse to contesting all 81 seats in the state if we get as many good candidates".
