The joining programme was held in the presence of JD(U) national general secretaries Afaque Ahmad Khan and Harshvardhan Singh. Khan admitted them to the JD(U) by handing over the party’s membership receipts.
While accepting the JD(U)’s membership, the Tamil Nadu leaders said they decided to join the JD(U) after being inspired by the ideology and development works of Bihar CM Nitish Kumar.
Speaking on the occasion, Khan said, “Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and JD(U) national president Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh always welcome all those who wish to fight for social and political causes while walking on the path of the party’s ideology of ‘Development with justice’.”
He said the JD(U) national leadership was working in the direction of strengthening and expanding the party’s base in many states outside Bihar.
“Today’s joining would strengthen and expand the JD(U)’s base in Tamil Nadu at ground level,” Khan said, adding the party has already decided to contest the forthcoming assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh and Manipur with an aim to make JD(U) a ‘national party’.
