Bhubaneswar: The ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) may change its stand on maintaining equidistance from Congress and BJP and it is likely to join hands with the grand old party to counter BJP, which is in power at Centre.
With Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh trying to form a non-BJP front taking the regional parties and Congress into its fold, BJD MP Bhartruhari Mahatab on Wednesday said there is no issue to change party’s stand on maintaining equidistance from Congress and BJP.
“If requires, the party would change its stand and join hand with Congress and other parties. Congress had supported us on various issues concerning the interest of Odisha. It shows that the perspective of Congress has changed,” said Mahatab.
Bolangir MP Kalikesh Singhdeo said the party would take its stand after the process for the alliance begins.
