JD(U)'s Sharad Yadav revolts against Nitish, accuses him of betraying public mandate

Amit Shah

Another wagon was added in the midst of Bihar's ongoing "battle", when Senior Janata Dal (United) (JD (U)) leader Sharad Yadav announced that he would kickstart a three-day Jan Samvad Yatra to discuss the repercussions of the withdrawal of the grand alliance in the state, adding that the "faith" of 11 crore people of Bihar was "broken". "It was an alliance of faith for five years and I am deeply hurt with its disintegration", Sharad told mediapersons at Patna airport.

"The path that Sharad Yadav has chosen leads to the RJD", said KC Tyagi, pointing out that Yadav has not once commented on the corruption charges against Lalu Yadav and his family that led Nitish Kumar to end their alliance.

During the assembly elections in 2015, Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav along with Congress party had formed a Mahagathbandhan to keep BJP out of power in Bihar.

In case there is a formal breakaway, both the factions will have to approach the Election Commission to claim the party name and the symbol (arrow), just like the two factions of Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh ahead of Assembly elections in the state.

"I am still with the grand alliance".

JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav talks over phone at his residence, in New Delhi on Thursday.

On the other hand, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) has been extending outside support to Sharad Yadav. "Wish you all the success in your career", said Sharad Yadav.

JD (U) secretary general K C Tyagi, a known aide of Yadav, indicated moving away from him and said "Sharad Yadav ji is unfortunately protesting against a decision taken by Bihar unit of the party to become part of NDA". "I still back the mahagathbandhan and stand with it".

JD (U) leaders, alarmed by Yadav's open defiance of Nitish Kumar, termed his statements as "anti-party activities" and hinted that disciplinary action against him, possibly his expulsion from the party, is being contemplated by the party's core group. Even on way to Muzaffarpur, he was received by Sonepur RJD MLA and other RJD leaders at different places. "The party is now not concerned whether he is with us or not", Neeraj added. He said, "The JD-U has nothing to do with it". "I have only asked a few JD (U) leaders to join me in this yatra (tour)", Mr Yadav said. "These people (Nitish Kumar and his group) have no contribution for the party", he said.

These volleys are similar to the offensive launched against JD (U)'s leaders in Bihar against RJD leaders in the run-up to Kumar's decision to call-off the alliance with RJD and Congress.
