Nitish Kumar likely to be NDA convenor

Amit-Nitish JDU rift wide open? Sharad Yadav congratulates Ahmed Patel for RS win despite 'toughest hurdles'
Sammy Stanley | 13 August, 2017, 06:28

The relations between Nitish Kumar and Sharad Yadav started deteriorating after the JD (U) chief made a decision to leave the Bihar grand alliance with RJD and Congress to join forces with BJP in forming the government in the state as RJD Chief Lalu Yadav and his family members, including former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, faced corruption charges.

Much to the chagrin of Yadav, BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday invited the Bihar chief minister to join the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

MPs met Vice-President and Rajya Sabha Chairman, Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday and submitted a written petition on the same.

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.

Party leader KC Tyagi said Ansari has been "suspended from the parliamentary party" for attending the meeting.

He added: "We can look forward to a decent display, even though they aren't going to be raining down from the sky". But don't let that stop you from checking out the show as there still should be plenty of brighter meteors to see.

With the JD (U) bracing up to the prospects of joining the NDA government at the Centre, the Cabinet expansion and reshuffle appear on the cards in immediate future. He said Nitish and Modi had a "very good talk" on Friday and "some kind of financial package for Bihar may be given after another meeting in the last week of August".

"We unanimously elected Ram Chandar as our leader in Rajya Sabha", Singh said, adding that it was an important step, because "a leader getting involved in anti-party activities is not good".

Ansari said the faction led by Nitish has become a "government JD-U".

Miffed with Nitish, Yadav, is on a three-day tour to Bihar to hold "direct dialogue" with the people. The representatives of JD (U) comprised of JDU MP Harivansh, RCP Singh, Anil Sahni, Kaushalendra Kumar and JD (U) general secretary Sanjay Jha. Srivastava had opposed Nitish's decision to align with the BJP.

The veteran lader of many battles is now expected to open his cards at the Sanjhi Virasat Bachao (Save Common Heritage) conclave, to be held in New Delhi on August 17, where he has invited the leaders of all Opposition parties, including Congress, Left, RJD, TMC, SP, BSP, BJP, INLD, and so on. "Kumar's decision to align with the BJP is unacceptable", Ansari said.
