Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), September 15 (ANI): The administration here on Friday has sealed the Janata Dal (United) [JD(U)] office in the Professors Colony due to the feud between veteran leader Sharad Yadav and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar factions, as both stake claim over it.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) had disposed off Sharad Yadav’s application staking claim over the party symbol.

Last month, Yadav had submitted a memorandum to the commission, staking claim over the party.

The JD(U), headed by Nitish, also approached the ECI to file a counter plea against a petition submitted by Yadav.

The party also submitted that Yadav had voluntarily left the party and had involved in anti-party activities.

The delegation, who filed the counter plea, consisted of R.C.P. Singh, Sanjay Jha, Lallan Singh and K.C. Tyagi. (ANI)
