Current leadership of NDA is not mature, says Sharad Yadav

JD(U)_Chief_Sharad_Yadav_0_0New Delhi, Aug 9 - Dubbing current National Democratic Alliance’s leadership as immature, Janta Dal (U) chief and Rajya Sabha MP Sharad Yadav said the onus of running the House lies on the government but it was not coming forward to end the ongoing face off in Parliament. While speaking to UNI here, Mr Yadav said government must take initiatives to address the issues raised by Opposition to end the deadlock. When asked if there was a shortage of big league leaders like former deputy Prime Minister Lal Krishna Advani, ex Congress leader and now country’s President Pranab Mukherjee and Former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee, who had an appeal across the political parties, the former NDA convener admitted it and said government was not trying to reach out to the Opposition. “There is no doubt about it. The incumbent NDA leadership is not mature otherwise these things (stalemate in Parliament) doesn’t stretch so much. The government part always initiates to put house in order. This time, they didn’t contact anybody till now,” Mr Yadav said. Describing Land Acquisition Bill to be wide of the mark, Mr Yadav said, ''the government must retreat from it as they were not left with any other option apart from a complete rollback of the Bill.'' While expressing concern over the incident of setting ablaze five tribal women in Jharkhand on the suspicion of witchcraft, the Rajya Sabha MP said, ''a complete lawlessness was prevailing across the country.'' “The atrocities on Dalits, tribal and poor are increasing with each passing day. This incident shows us plight of these people. Leave external problems, till now we are not able to solve our domestic problems,” he said. As Bihar legislative assembly polls are expected in September-October this year, the JDU leader was hopeful of continuing the JDU government in the state and claimed that his party was fully prepared for the ensuing polls.
