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

BJP chief Amit Shah Union minister Smriti Irani defector Balwantsinh Rajput and Congress leader Ahmed Patel are in the fray the last two will face off against each other. Voting is scheduled to begin at 9

Sharad Yadav has openly expressed his disappointment over the prevailing situation in Bihar, especially with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar undoing the grand alliance and joining hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Yadav, who is on his three-day Jan Samvad Yatra, said, "We had formed the alliance with a mandate for five years, but it broke down in the midway that has disappointed lot of people". A Socialist from Jabalpur (in Madhya Pradesh), who won a bypoll in 1974 after completing his engineering, Sharad had to depend on leaders like Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar to enter the Parliament in the post-Mandal era.

He said that strangely one of the parties of an alliance took an U turn later, a development which he had never seen in his political career.

"I will visit eight to nine districts during my yatra to take feedback from people".

Sharad Yadav to leave the JD (U)?

Earlier, after Nitish Kumar had walked away from the Grand Alliance, Sharad Yadav had said it was a "betrayal" of the people's mandate.

Tesla also is involved in installing solar-paneled roofs and producing batteries that can store the energy and power homes. After that comes the Model Y , a smaller crossover scheduled to arrive as soon as late 2019.

In his first visit to Bihar after the Bihar grand alliance split, Yadav said that the disintegration of the alliance has violated the faith of 11 crore people of the state and that he is "hurt" by it.

Apart from Sharad Yadav, two JD-U Rajya Sabha MPs - Ali Anwar Ansari and Virender Kumar - have also voiced their opposition to Nitish Kumar's decision to join hands with the BJP.

Yadav will visit around 10 ten constituencies of Bihar from August 10 to 12. He added that he was still with the Mahagathbandan (Grand Alliance). Though many supporters turned up at the airport to greet Sharad Yadav, there was no prominent JD (U) leader or MLA. I consider this as a responsibility. Nitish Kumar, they said, is likely to suspend Mr Yadav, which will checkmate him.

When Sharad lost the last LS poll three years back, he was JD (U) national president and, therefore, Nitish accommodated him in Rajya Sabha to salvage his image, given his seniority and respectability within the party. Even on way to Muzaffarpur, he was received by Sonepur RJD MLA and other RJD leaders at different places. Not a single JD-U legislator was present. Neeraj Kumar said that party's Muzaffarpur district unit has send a proposal to initiate disciplinary action against Ramai Ram.

According to Sharad Yadav's loyalists, several party MLAs and MLCs are in touch with him.

Sources close to Sharad Yadav hinted that he may also attend RJD's "BJP Hatao Desh Bachao" rally scheduled to be held on August 27.
