"A Modi wave is sweeping across the country. The NDA will get an absolute majority", JDU leader said.
PATNA: Refuting Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s remark that the JD (U) and the Akali Dal may join the opposition camp to form an anti-BJP government after polls, the JD (U) said that the party was a trusted ally of the NDA.

“A Modi wave is sweeping across the country. The NDA will get an absolute majority. We did not except such a comment from a leader like Azad. His comment is meant to create confusion among the voters ahead of final phase of polls on May 19,” JD (U) leader and party spokesman Rajiv Ranjan told ET.

Nalanda, Patna Sahib, Pataliputra, Arrah, Buxar, Sasaram, Karakat and Jahanabad are going to polls on Sunday.

“The Congress is facing a tough situation. There is hardly any regional allies with them. Congress has allied with RJD, which is highly corrupt,” JD (U) spokesperson Neeraj Kumar added.

He said Azad’s comment was merely hypothetical. “People of the country have seen how the NDA has responded to the Pulwama terror attack and it’s heading for a massive victory. Even the RJD has started side lining Congress; just see the letter of Lalu Prasad Yadav and his son Tejashwi Prasad Yadav. They are asking the people to bring back the lamp (RJD’s party symbol).”
