India NDA constituents concerned about coordination; PM assures

NDA constituents concerned about coordination; PM assures

NDA constituent JD(U) had demanded a coordination committee earlier; today LJP raised the demand; Prime Minister Narendra Modi accepted it

In the meeting of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on Sunday before the winter session of Parliament in the wake of separation of BJP and Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, regional constituents of the coalition raised a demand for coordination. Janata Dal (United) [JD(U)] had earlier raised the same demand. Today Chirag Paswan, president of Lokjan Shakti Party, echoed the thought. Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured the allies their concern will be addressed.

The prime minister, describing the allies as “family”, said, “We work together for the people. We got a big mandate and we should respect it.”

Without naming the Shiv Sena, the prime minister said, ‘”Despite no shared ideology, we are like-minded people. We should not be disturbed by small disputes. A coordination committee should be formed to coordinate with one another.”

After the NDA meeting, Chirag Paswan, leader of the LJP, another old ally of the BJP that had to go it alone in its State, said, “It was nice to hear the prime minister. The Shiv Sena missed it. Shiv Sena was absent from the meeting. As LJP, we want to say that we need to coordinate with the NDA. For this, someone should be appointed convenor.”

NDA in Maharashtra

The Shiv Sena, which has parted ways with the BJP, demanding the post of chief minister in Maharashtra, boycotted the NDA meeting. Ramdas Athawale, the Union minister and head of Republic Party of India, informed the press that the Shiv Sena did not attend the meeting. Shiv Sena’s Vinayak Raut attended the all-party meeting instead.

“I believe this problem can be solved. I spoke also to Amit bhai (Amit Shah) in this regard,” Athawale said. Repeating what he had said in Mumbai, the RPI head added, “Amit bhai said that all things were going in the right direction. In the end, only BJP and Shiv Sena will form the government (in Maharashtra). I think Shiv Sena should change its stand. Congress is not ready to support Shiv Sena.”

Athawale said he requested the home minister to intervene in the matter of Maharashtra coalition and mediate, which he thought would re-establish the BJP-Sena link. “He (Amit Shah) said, ‘Don’t worry, everything will be alright. BJP and Shiv Sena will come together to form government’,” Athawale said.
