Patna: In an attempt to dispel any murmur of crack within the Grand Alliance in Bihar led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the leaders of the Janata Dal – U, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), and Congress held a joint press conference in the presence of Kumar, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Ashok Kumar Chowdhary and other party leaders.

Declaring everything was fine within the coalition, Kumar said that the leaders of the opposition parties led by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were planting fake news in the media by spreading rumors of discord within the alliance.

"The Mahagathbandhan is quite strong and will remain so despite attempts by some to spread rumors of differences within the Grand Alliance. We are completely united in our goal to keep Bihar secular and will soon form joint committees at district and block levels to monitor developmental works in the state," Kumar said at the 'Lok Samvad' at 1 Anne Marg, the official residence of the Chief Minister.

Seeking to douse the voice of dissent within the party workers, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav said that district and block-level leaders would find place in this committee who would directly report to the party leaders at the state capital.

"We have heard your voices loud and clear and we assure you that your complaints will be resolved by us," the RJD chief said to the party workers.

The three top leaders also congratulated each other for their contributions in making the recently-concluded Prakash Utsav, Kalchakra in Bodh Gaya, and the world's longest human chain in Bihar a huge success.

Yadav's two sons Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejaswi Yadav, former JD-U President Sharad Yadav, Congress leader C P Joshi, and many others were present on the occasion.
