Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)) is a political party in India with political presence mainly in Bihar and Jharkhand. It is currently the fifth largest party in Lok Sabha with 20 seats. Janata Dal (United) party mentor and patron is the veteran socialist leader George Fernandes.
The Janata Dal (United) was formed with the merger of the Sharad Yadav faction of the Janata Dal, the Lokshakti Party and the Samata Party On 30 October 2003. The uniting force is believed to be common opposition to Rashtriya Janata Dal in Bihar especially after the RJD welcomed Samata Party rebels like Raghunath Jha into the party.
The Janata Dal (United) and the Rashtriya Janata Dal – bitter political opponents today—originate from the same Janata Dal and Jayaprakash Narayan's call for a program of social transformation which he termed Sampoorna kranti or Total Revolution after Indira Gandhi was found guilty of violating electoral laws by the Allahabad High Court in 1974.
The JD(U) along with its alliance partner, the BJP defeated the RJD-led UPA government in Bihar in November 2005. The government is headed by JD(U) leader, Nitish Kumar.
