New Delhi: Dismissing reports of resignation, Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh on Thursday said that JD-U ek hai aur ek rahega (JD-U is united and will always be)". “JD(U) is united and will always be. This is just a regular meeting . I have shared a bond with Nitish Kumar for 37 years. BJP is trying to set a narrative, we are one”, asserted Singh, while speaking to Republic TV. For the unversed, reports had claimed that Lalan had told Nitish that he wanted to step down as JD(U) national president.


Earlier in the day, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar had ducked queries about rumours of major organisational change in his Janta Dal (U) ahead of a crucial two-day party conclave which will begin in Delhi later in the day. The JD (U) supremo in a brief interaction with reporters before boarding his flight to Delhi asserted that the party meet in Delhi was 'normal'.

"These meetings take place every year. It's normal…there is nothing specific at all. These are routine meetings", said the CM when journalists sought his views on rumours of major organisational change in JD(U) during the two-day party conclave.

The CM evaded a direct reply when asked whether Lalan was likely to make a formal offer of his resignation at the JD(U)'s crucial meetings scheduled in Delhi on December 29. The CM also dodged questions about rumours of his joining the NDA.
