Stating that the JD(U)-BJP split will weaken the communal forces of the country, Samajwadi Party on Sunday said the move will propel the process of strengthening anti-Congress, anti-BJP formations ahead of the next Lok Sabha polls.

"The split in NDA between JD(U) and BJP will weaken the communal forces of the country. This split will provide leverage to the move of building an anti-Congress, anti- BJP platform ahead of the next Lok Sabha polls and provide alternative policies to the anti-people machinations of Congress and BJP," General Secretary Kiranmoy Nanda said.

In a major setback to NDA ahead of Lok Sabha election, JD(U) on Sunday snapped its ties with the BJP in Bihar in protest against the elevation of Narendra Modi, bringing to an end of a 17-year-old alliance.
