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”.
