Sharad Yadav sacked from Rajya Sabha post

Sharad Yadav sacked from Rajya Sabha post

Kumar pulled out of the opposition Congress-party led United Progressive Alliance and formed a coalition government with the BJP in Bihar, following corruption allegations on his then Deputy Chief Minister, who belonged to former ally Rashtriya Janata Dal.

In another development, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah invited the JDU to rejoin the NDA.

He refused to comment on reports on the JD-U decision to replace him as the parliamentary party leader.

"We are the real one as we are still with the principles of the JD-U, but they have changed and become BJD-U", he added, in a jibe at the Nitish faction which has sided with the BJP to form government in Bihar. Senior party MP R.C.P. Singh may be the likely replacement. "If there is any shame left, Sharad Yadav should resign from Rajya Sabha", said JD (U) leader Ajay Alok.

Mr. Kumar also suspended MP Ali Anwar from the parliamentary party group for participating in the meeting of Opposition parties here.

Paswan also said that an inquiry should be made in the death of around 60 children in Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh and action should be taken against the responsible. "All the party MLAs and MLCs from Bihar are with us".

Talking about Sharad Yadav's proximity to Lalu Prasad Yadav's RJD, he said during Sharad Yadav's Bihar visit this week, he was surrounded by people from RJD right from the airport, where he landed.

Meanwhile, PM Narendra Modi will be meeting Nitish again in August-end to discuss the Bihar package.

The cracks in JD (U) have now become so big that it would be impossible to save the structure. "I am confident that he will handle the situation and ensure neutralising Yadav's revolt in the party without causing any more damage to it", Prakash added. 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.
