Nitish faction is real JD(U), will get arrow symbol: EC

Sharad Yadav

The poll panel's decision also paves the way for the Janata Dal (United) to contest the upcoming assembly polls in Gujarat on its symbol. "Consequently, the group led by Nitish Kumar is entitled to use the reserved symbol "Arrow" of the party as a recognised state party in Bihar", the EC said in its order.

The Commission rejected the claim by Sharad Yadav led faction that JD (U) national council, constituted in 2013, has 1098 members who attended the National Convention of the party in 2016.

The EC's verdict comes as a final nail in the political coffin of Yadav who, despite having barebone support of a handful of disgruntled former JD-U leaders in Bihar, has maintained that he was the real JD-U while Nitish Kumar was an outsider who belonged to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"Both the groups submitted their written submissions and individual affidavits from the members of the legislature wing of the party and from the members of the national council, which is the apex representative body of the party as per the party constitution".

Malcolm Young, guitarist and founding member of AC/DC, dies at 64
Young's family, which announced his death in a statement , noted that he had suffered from dementia for several years. Malcolm Young was born in Glasgow on 6 January 1953, emigrating with his family to Australia ten years later.

Notably, Sharad Yadav was not happy with Nitish Kumar after the latter had pulled out from Mahagathbandhan and had joined hands with the BJP to form a government in the state.

"The party calls upon the strayed section of leaders involved and mislead by the petitioner's group to come back to the leadership of Nitish Kumar", Tyagi said.

"With RJD being run by a strong Yadav family, it would be a natural homecoming for Mr. Sharad Yadav", said an RJD leader. JD (U) national general secretary Sanjay Jha on Friday accused the Congress of trying to repeatedly prop up Sharad Yadav against Nitish Kumar.

Putting forth a different scenario that might emerge, political analyst Tharasu Shyam told Express, "The EC could take into account the "change of circumstances" that took place in the AIADMK. Our battle will continue", Raza said. Vasava was appointed the Acting President of their party by the rebel faction on September 17 this year.
