Sharad Yadav breaks silence: Says, JD-U-BJP alliance unfortunate

New Delhi: Breaking his silence on the JD-U’s new tie-up with the BJP in Bihar, senior Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav on Monday described it as “unfortunate” and said he did not agree with the decision taken by JD-U President and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

The mandate of the people (2015 Bihar assembly polls) was not for this

Talking to reporters outside parliament, Yadav said “I don’t agree with the decision in Bihar. It is unfortunate.”

“The mandate of the people (2015 Bihar assembly polls) was not for this,” the Rajya Sabha member said on the JD-U breaking its alliance the Grand Alliance of RJD and Congress in the state.

Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on last Wednesday left the ‘grand alliance’ and allied with the BJP.

He claimed his move was inspired by “conscience” as he couldn’t possibly support RJD chief Lalu Prasad and his son who was deputy CM, Tejashwi Yadav, following their being named in a CBI corruption case.

On Saturday, the RJD’s Lalu extended an invitation to Sharad Yadav, urging him to lead the battle against the BJP in Bihar.

Besides Sharad Yadav, JD(U)’s Rajya Sabha MPs Veerendra Kumar and Ali Anwar have also openly criticised Nitish’s move to break away from the ‘grand alliance’.
