Recently Sharad has been openly showing his disappointment with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar by criticising his decision of forming the new government in alliance with BJP. In his statement a few days back he said that the mahagathbandhan was formed for 5 years, Nitish has broken the trust of 11 crore people of Bihar by breaking the alliance and joining hands with foes disguised as friends. He also added that he is still with the grand alliance.
He has also initiated a three-day interaction programme across Bihar to talk to the people and know their opinion about the new government formed. He also sent a senior JD(U) leader Ali Anwar on his behalf to attend the opposition party meet organised by Congress high command Sonia Gandhi on Friday.
JD(U) did not turn a blind eye to all the activities of Sharad. Keeping a track of all the actions of Sharad Nitish and JD(U) are clear that Sharad is going against the party and will soon move to a split in the party. Following the events, Ali Anwar was expelled from the party for attending the meeting on Friday night.
On Saturday morning the representatives of JD(U) wrote a letter to Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu saying that instead of Sharad Yadav, RCP Singh will be the leader of the parliamentary party in the Rajya Sabha and Naidu gave his approval for the change in leader. The representatives of JD(U) comprised of JDU MP Harivansh, RCP Singh, Anil Sahni, Kaushalendra Kumar and JD(U) general secretary Sanjay Jha.
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.
Meanwhile, BJP party President Amit Shah has invited JD(U) to join NDA. He tweeted that yesterday JD(U) Chief Nitish Kumar had visited him at his residence and he invited him to join JD(U) with NDA.
कल JD(U) के राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष श्री @NitishKumar जी से अपने निवास पर भेंट हुई। मैंने उन्हें JD(U) को NDA में शामिल होने के लिए आमंत्रित किया।
