Prime News, National, New Delhi, November 18:- Sharad Yadav-led Janata Dal (United) on Saturday announced its decision to tie-up with the Congress party to contest election on eight to 10 seats in western Gujarat where the socialists have a presence.
The faction has sought a new election symbol following the decision of the Election Commission on Friday to allow Nitish Kumar-led JD (U) to use the arrow symbol. Gujarat goes to polls in two phases on December 9 and 14.
The decision to form an alliance with Congress for fighting elections in Jhagadia and adjoining constituencies was taken at a meeting here between Yadav, sitting JD (U) MLA from Jhagadia Chotubhai Vasava and Congress election in-charge for Gujarat Ashok Gehlot and state president Bharatsinh Madhavsinh Solanki.
