There had been speculation about a rift between the grand alliance of Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) because of their differences over the presidential nominee. Commenting on the issue the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said the coalition of the two parties was a 'mismatch' adding that the disruption being witnessed was obvious. "Grand Alliance between RJD and JD (U) is a mismatch. Neither there is any connection in the ideology of both the parties nor is their working pattern similar. Dispute being witnessed in this alliance was obvious, because the RJD never accepted the concept of good governance," BJP leader Nand Kishore Yadav told the media. Yadav said the few good initiatives being taken by the JD (U) in the state were making the RJD restless. He said it was just the greed for power which had kept both the parties together.
A report from Darjeeling said that Jama Masjid Imam, Ahmed Ali Kadri had hailed the decision of the Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) to levy 12 hours relaxation for the Muslim community to observe Eid and said that the demands of the agitators should be met. The GJM leadership had earlier announced that there would be partial relaxation for 12 hours today for the Muslim community to observe Eid. On Friday, GJM chief Bimal Gurung resigned from the post of chief executive of the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA). He demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation ( CBI) inquiry into the police firing on the GJM supporters. This came after 43 members of the GJM resigned from the GTA. Gurung said, "Indefinite strike to continue. All-party meeting postponed to June 29. We will burn GTA agreement on June 27."
