Heeding JDU Leader Sharad Yadav's disapproval of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's decision of aligning himself with the Bharatiya Janata Party to form a BJP-JDU government in the state, RJD leader Lalu Yadav has offered him to lead the anti-BJP front.

"I appeal to Sharad Yadav-Ji who has been our leader... whom we consider our leader, to come forward and fight the BJP. Take the lead role in this," said the RJD leader asking Sharad Yadav to lead the anti-BJP front.

The 70-years-old JDU leader, however, despite keeping his mum on the issue, continued his perpetual attacks on the Modi led central government.

Attacking the ruling BJP government for not delivering on their promise, on Sunday he tweeted, "Neither black money slashed abroad returned, one of the main slogans of the ruling party nor anyone caught out of those named in Panama papers."

His tweet came in a series of attack he launched on the central government in the past few days. He had also tweeted earlier on Friday and Thursday blaming the centre for misusing government funds and pointing out the drawbacks of 'Fasal Bima Yojana'.

The JD(U) leader, who has also served as a Union Minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, is reportedly angry with the Bihar Chief Minister for changing alliances and breaking the 'mahagathbandhan' (grand alliance) in Bihar.
