JD-U miffed about last minute news of NDA meet
New Delhi, June 14 (IANS) A divide seemed to appear in the National Democratic Alliance ahead of the presidential polls with ally Janata Dal-United expressing displeasure over the last minute information of a meeting of National Democratic Alliance scheduled for Friday.
JD-U general secretary Javed Raza told IANS that until 6 p.m. in the evening, no official communication about the NDA meeting was received.
"We have no official information about the NDA meeting," he said.
JD-U leader Sharad Yadav, who is also the convener of the NDA, was also out of Delhi.
"Sharad-ji was out of Delhi and was scheduled to return on Saturday. However, now he is to come back this evening," a JD-U leader told IANS.
The BJP ally has been upset over delays in consultation over the issue.
Sharad Yadav had Wednesday also snubbed senior BJP leader Jaswant Singh saying he was not the NDA candidate for the vice president's post. Singh had met Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, seeking his backing for himself for the post.
BJP Wednesday said it was "seized" of the meeting, denying it had anything to do with Jaswant Singh's candidature.
The JD-U had also expressed displeasure earlier over party leader Sushma Swaraj rejecting Vice President M. Hamid Ansari's candidature.
