Janta Parivaar merger is necessary to stop 'communal' BJP Party: Lalu Yadav(Source Rediff)

Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad announced in Patna on Sunday that the merger of the six parties of the erstwhile Janata Parivar was certain and necessary to stop and defeat the communally inclined Bharatiya Janata Party.
“The merger is certain. We have no problem with it,” Lalu said in his initial address at the party national executive meeting in Patna.
Lalu said that merger was a move to unite the samajwadi (socialists) elements to fight against the BJP which is hell bent to divide the country on communal lines.
He said after the merger the united party will defeat the BJP in Bihar and across the country.
“There was no chance of formation of any front or alliance,; merger is the best option. There is no if or but. We will merge for sure,” he said.

Meanwhile, a political resolution of the merger of RJD with six parties of Janata  Parivar was passed in the party's national executive.
