Nitish faction removes Sharad as party head in RS

Nitish Kumar

If he keeps a different opinion, then he is free to do so, Nitish had told reporters after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

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

"Our joining hands with the NDA will be approved of in the meeting on 19th August", he added.

Explaining his break up from the mahagathbandhan the JD (U), President, Nitish Kumar had alleged that corruption is seeping in and ruining the alliance through Lalu Yadav and his clan.

He said it was the people who had made the Grand Alliance of RJD, JD-U and Congress in the 2015 Bihar Assembly polls and given their mandate to rule for five years.

The JD (U) has two MPs in the Lok Sabha and nine in the Rajya Sabha, which is very crucial for the BJP, considering it is in the minority in the Upper House.

Trump to direct Lighthizer to assess Chinese intellectual property practices
Trump tweeted Friday that military solutions are "locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely". Officials at the White House and Lighthizer's office were not immediately available for comment.

BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday formally invited Bihar Chief Minister and JD (U) chief Nitish Kumar to join NDA. "The party will also write to the Rajya Sabha to invalidate his membership for anti-party activity", said a party leader close to Nitish. He made it clear that the JD (U) has already chose to align with the BJP. Nitish said the decision has been taken by the party and Sharad should accept it.

"R C P Singh has been elected leader of the party in the Rajya Sabha, replacing Sharadji", confirmed Bihar JD (U) chief and Rajya Sabha member Bashishta Narayan Singh.

Rejecting Ansari's allegations as baseless, K C Tyagi, Nitish's aide in Delhi, said the entire Bihar unit, including all MLAs, MLCs, national executive members, district committees members, and the party cadre, were with Nitish.

Yadav remained unfazed, asserting that the JD (U) "belonged to him and not just to Kumar".

Yadav is disgruntled over Nitish's decision to break ties with Mahagathbandhan and that too without informing him once. A former Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer from the UP cadre, he has been Principal Secretary in the Nitish Kumar government. "Sharad Yadav-led faction is the real JD-U while the other one has become a "Sarkari JD-U" and Bharatiya JD-(U)", Ansari said while briefing mediapersons. "Kumar's decision to align with the BJP is unacceptable", Ansari said.
