Yadav loses his job as JD(U) leader in the Rajya Sabha

Yadav loses his job as JD(U) leader in the Rajya Sabha

Apart from this, due to the continuous questioning of the decision by Nitish to form a government with the BJP, a possible show-cause notice can also be issued to Sharad Yadav. "I met JD (U) president Nitish Kumar at my residence yesterday". "Since the Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandra Babu Naidu is now the convenor of the NDA, the Bihar chief minister could be given a designation to suit his status and political importance for the BJP after the JD (U) formally joins the grand ruling alliance", sources said.

He said, when we are together in government in Bihar, it is only natural that our party joins the Union government. In a defiant tone, he questioned Nitish's authority for taking the "dictatorial" decision of removing Yadav from the position without holding any party meeting, and said it was time to take the battle to the masses.

The Janata Dal (United) on Saturday replaced senior leader Sharad Yadav with Ramchandra Prasad Singh as the party's leader in the Rajya Sabha, reported ANI.

Sharad, speaking on the last day of Bihar's three-day dialogue tour, attacked Nitish in Madhepura on Saturday, saying, "JDU is not just Nitish Kumar's party, it is also my party".

"The whole party agreed to Nitish Kumar's decision to dissociate itself from the grand alliance in Bihar", he added. "All the party MLAs and MLCs from Bihar are with us". As far as party is concerned, it has already taken its decision.

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. The leaders standing with Nitish are threatening the other leaders who support me. We will go to the people. JD (U) general secretary K C Tyagi said the party would pass a proposal at its August 19 meeting, and formally join the NDA at the national level.
