Former Janata Dal United (JD-U) President Sharad Yadav, who is conflicted with the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s decision to join the Bharatiya Janata Party has approached the Congress amid the shift in Bihar politics.
Rajya Sabha MP Sharad Yadav, on Thursday, met with Vice President of Congress Rahul Gandhi and called for a party meeting at his residence.
This move comes in the aftermath of Nitish joining forces with BJP to form the government in the state, breaking up with the RJD-Congress alliance in the state.
So far, Yadav has refused to answer any questions; however, sources tell that the MP is not happy with Nitish Kumar’s decision.
Other senior leaders in the party have also voiced descent against the JD(U) leader for joining forces with the BJP. Rajya Sabha MP Ali Anwar Ansari even expressed his opposition with the Bihar CM.
He said, “My conscience does not allow me to support this step of his (of Nitish Kumar joining hands with the BJP).”
“It is wrong to split from the Grand Alliance and join hands with a communal party like the BJP to form the government in Bihar,” Ansari said.
He said the people's verdict was for BJP to be in opposition. "Mandate of people should be respected." His stand has strengthened with speculations that a section of leaders in Nitish Kumar's party was also unhappy with his decision.
