Nitish Kumar ousts Sharad as JD-U RS leader

  • The third wave of flood had hit 15 districts in Assam on Friday

On asked about the announcement of JD (U) Bihar unit chief Basistha Narain Singh's statement in Patna that Yadav had been removed from the post of party leader in the Rajay Sabha, Tyagi said he would not contradict Singh, but would not say anything on Yadav's status in the Upper House unless authorised by the party president.

The relations between Nitish Kumar and Sharad Yadav started deteriorating after the JD (U) chief chose to leave the Bihar grand alliance with RJD and Congress to join forces with BJP in forming the government in the state as RJD Chief Lalu Yadav and his family members, including former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, faced corruption charges. "He [Sharad Yadav] has not been removed from the JD (U)", party leader Vasishtha Narayana said.

On Nitish's claim that the party is not recognized by Election Commission outside Bihar, Srivastava told PTI, "We will not leave the party. Sharad Yadav has been addressing RJD workers on his state tour, but not one JD (U) MLA is with him, not one JD (U) district chief with them", claimed Tyagi.

In reply to this Nitish Kumar remarked that Sharad Yadav is free to decide who he wants to join.

Confirming about the formal invite, Shah on Saturday tweeted, "I met JD (U) president Nitish Kumar at my residence yesterday".

Earlier on Thursday, Yadav had said that the split in the Grand Alliance had really hurt him.

On Friday night, JD (U) Rajya Sabha member Ali Anwar Ansari, who was critical of the party's alliance with the BJP, was suspended from its parliamentary party for attending a meeting of opposition parties convened by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.

Much to the chagrin of Yadav, BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday invited the Bihar chief minister to join the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Besides the JD (U), Lalu Prasad's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress were in the three-party coalition. "I am not afraid of anyone as I stand by my principles", he added. "We will fight till the end and go to the masses", said Ansari.

The JD (U) at its August 19 National Executive Committee meeting is likely to formally join the NDA.
