New Delhi: Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD) will merge with Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on March 20. LJD leader Sharad Yadav announced this at New Delhi on Wednesday.
The existing political situation of the nation demands the Janata Parivar to stay united. Sharad Yadav added that the new development is a part of his efforts to bring the scattered parties of the Parivar under one umbrella.
Janata Dal had 143 seats in Lok Sabha in 1989. Later, the agenda for social justice lost its pace as the Parivar interspersed into several parties over the years. However, the like-minded parties aligning to form a strong opposition is the need of the hour, said Sharad Yadav.
