Nitish Kumar ousts Sharad as JD-U RS leader

Did the Gujarat Rajya Sabha elections split the JD

Calling the move a "necessary step", Narayan said that if a person who is a leader indulges in anti-party activities, it must be condemned. "Sharad Yadav has been addressing RJD workers on his state tour, but not one JD (U) MLA is with him, not one JD (U) district chief with them", claimed Tyagi. Indicating that he was not ready to toe the Nitish Kumar line, despite being outnumbered in the JD (U) by Kumar's supporters, Yadav said, "there are two JD (U) s in the state, one is sarkari (official) and another is janata's (of the people)".

"Kumar will take a call on joining the country's ruling alliance this month itself", a senior party leader said.

The final nail in the coffin came today when Sharad Yadav was removed from the post of leader of Janata Dal (United) in Rajya Sabha. Paswan said his party would welcome Nitish Kumar's entry in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) fold. They have reposed their faith in the chief minister and JD (U) president Nitish Kumar.

Sources said R.C.P. Singh is likely to be inducted in the Union Council of Ministers from the JDU quota in the changed political equations when the JDU becomes part of the NDA.

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. "This party is not Kumar's alone but also belongs to me", said a seemingly defiant Yadav, a founder-leader of the party, who had merged his original Janata Dal with Kumar's Samata Party, in 2003, to form the JD (U). He made it clear that the JD (U) has already chose to align with the BJP. Srivastava had opposed Nitish's decision to align with the BJP. We are not going to get cowed down by such threats.

"We have the support of activists, students, and other social leaders". We will go to the people.

Nitish is expected to formally announce his decision to join the NDA at the party's national executive meeting in Patna on August 19.
