New Delhi, Nov 9: The JD-U’s Sharad Yadav faction on Thursday said it was confident about getting the party’s “Arrow” symbol from the poll panel, which is hearing a dispute between the faction and the one led by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Addressing media, Janata Dal-United General Secretary Arun Kumar Shrivastav said “We are sure the EC will allot us the Arrow symbol because we have the majority with us as per the party’s constitution. Nitish Kumar can’t override the National Council, which is the supreme decision making body of the party and whose majority is with us”.

The poll panel had held a hearing in the case on Tuesday where noted advocate Kapil Sibal counsel of the Sharad Yadav faction while senior advocate Gopal Singh represented the Nitish Kumar faction.

“Sibal argued that as per a Supreme Court ruling, if a party’s National Council is disputed, the previous National Council will prevail. Since in this case the National Council of 195 members shown by Nitish Kumar is disputed, the previous National Council should be recognised,” Shrivastav stated.

He said although the JD-U was active in 22 states, Nitish Kumar showed the National Council consisting of only 195 members from only five states which includes Bihar, Jharkhand, Kerala, Jammu and Kashmir and Daman and Diu.

“Of these states, the Kerala unit is with us. As for Jammu and Kashmir, Sibal argued that party elections were shown to be held during the days when there was curfew. How could they hold elections during curfew?

“Also, as many as 30 affidavits submitted by them (Nitish faction) were signed by persons on the 17th day of the month but they have been counter-signed by the notary on 22nd day of the month. How is it possible?” Shrivastav asserted.

JD-U General Secretary also said that “We want to contest the Gujarat Assembly elections on Arrow symbol. And we hope to get it by November 14, on the day when nomination for Gujarat polls will start”.

The next hearing is scheduled to be held on 13th of this month.
