Yadav loses his job as JD(U) leader in the Rajya Sabha

After snapping his ties with Lalu Prasad led RJD, Nitish Kumar entered into alliance with BJP to form a new government in Bihar on the 27th of last month.

Acknowledging Mr Yadav's seniority in the party, the JD (U) leader said, "Sharadji is one of the founding members of the party, but it pains us that the path chosen by him leads to our rival, the Rashtriya Janata Dal".

The party handed over a formal letter to vice-president M Venkaiah Naidu, informing him that from now on Singh would replace Yadav as parliamentary party leader in the RS. Yadav has been replaced with Bihar Chief Minister and party chief Nitish Kumar's close aide RCP Sinha.

The cracks in JD (U) have now become so big that it would be impossible to save the structure. However, those not happy with Kumar's line express solidarity with Sharad Yadav's stand that the JD (U) was his party too. "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.

Reacting to his removal and his replacement by Ram Chander Singh in the Rajya Sabha, Yadav said that he doesn't take such matters seriously.

Much to the chagrin of Yadav, BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday invited the Bihar chief minister to join the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). "I invited JD (U) to join the NDA", the BJP chief tweeted. The JD (U) is also likely to get two berths in the Cabinet reshuffle that is round the corner.

Anwar was suspended from the JD (U) parliamentary party for participating in the Opposition meeting called by Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

Hitting out at Bitish, Anwar said that people who brought the party to its glory were being "removed" from party posts. "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.
