India Elections : Nitish may switch to UPA : Sheila Dikshit

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in a television interview on Sunday hinted that the Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United) may join the Congress after the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

The statement set political circles abuzz with the speculation that JD(U) may sever links with its ally the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and join the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) after the elections.

However, refuting the speculation, BJP Spokesman Prakash Javadekar said, “It is a democracy and there are no restrictions on anyone dreaming in broad daylight. Anyone can imagine bizarre things and Sheila Dikshit better not count on Nitish breaking away from the NDA and joining UPA. She better watch out how many from their folds will instead align with the BJP-led NDA government after the counting day.”
