Bihar political turmoil is getting worse day by day in a recent move by JDU, it replaced the senior party leader Sharad Yadav with Ramchandra Prasad Singh as the party’s leader in the Rajya Sabha on Saturday.

According to ANI,confirming the move, Bihar party president Bashistha Narain Singh said it was important due to Yadav’s recent “anti-party activities.” The move comes amid a rift within the party following Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar’s move to form the government in the state in alliance with the BJP.

“He (Sharad Yadav) hasn’t been removed, we are just replacing him with RCP Singh. It was important due to Yadav’s recent actions,” Singh told to ANI. “It was a necessary step because being leader if a person indulges in anti-party activities it has to be condemned unanimously.”he added

He also stated that a delegation met Vice-President and Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaiah Naidu today and submitted a written petition on the same.

Meanwhile,earlier reports suggests that BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday revealed that he has asked Nitish Kumar to join the NDA government.

On Twitter, Shah wrote “Met JD(U) national president Nitish Kumar yesterday at his residence. I invited him to include JD(U) in the NDA fold.”  Nitish kumar also met PM Modi on friday, but he declined to take any action against him.

Sharad Yadav is currently interacting with the people of Bihar with his “Samvad Yatra” to know their reactions to the “betrayal of mandate for Grand Alliance”.

Muzaffarnagar , June 17 : A  toll plaza on the Muzaffarnagar-Saharanpur highway in Uttar Pradesh has been painted saffron on Sunday.

 Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is in power in Uttar Pradesh and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has given a makeover to secretariat building, dividers, statues, and even toll plazas with a saffron colour.

 From the Chief Minister’s office to various other spots, the colour has become a defining feature of the state.

Earlier this year, Gomti Nagar police station, Qaiser Bagh police station, Haj committee office’s boundary walls in Lucknow were coated saffron.
The saffronisation, however, did not go down well with the Opposition, who termed it a political ploy of the party.

Earlier, in December, around 100 government primary schools were painted saffron. Later the DM got them white washed again.

The towels in the office of the chief minister on the fifth floor of the building are of a saffron hue and the curtains, though not saffron in colour are close to it, the sources said.

Even the fleet of 50 buses were saffron coloured .

New Delhi, June 16: AAP leaders and workers will march to the Prime Minister’s residence on Sunday to protest against the lack of response by the Lt Governor and the Centre to the sit-in by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his ministers at the Lt Governor’s house, a party leader said.

“Delhi is all set to launch a mass protest like the one we did which changed its political picture,” Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Pankaj Gupta told the media here on Saturday.

“We have tried all we can, but they are not ready to listen,” he added.

Gupta said not only the party workers, but the common people will also take part in the march that will begin from the Mandi House metro station at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Kejriwal, along with Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Cabinet ministers Satyendar Jain and Gopal Rai, has been camping in the Raj Niwas — the official accommodation-cum-office of the Lt Governor — since Monday evening.

They have demanded a direction to the IAS officers working in the Delhi administration to end their undeclared strike, action against officers who have struck work for “four months” and approval to his government’s proposal for doorstep delivery of ration to the poor.

Sisodia and Jain are on an indefinite hunger strike.
