Sharad Yadav Signals Separation, Says There Are 2 Janata Dals

In just about a fortnight since JD (U) president Nitish Kumar took his party out of the grand alliance in Bihar to join hands with BJP and stay on as chief minister, he is face to face with a revolt by the senior most party leader Sharad Yadav, pushing the party to the edge of a split.

A few days ago, Sharad told reporters that Nitish by siding with the BJP has insulted the people of Bihar as the mandate was for the Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance) and against the communal forces during the 2015 Bihar Assembly elections.

In contrast, JD (U) chief and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was left red-faced after party's Gujarat MLA Chhotubhai Vasava claimed to have voted for Ahmed Patel, helping him win the cliffhanger.

"We have formed the Mahagathbandan for five years".

Ousted Gujarat JD (U) chief Arun Srivastava, while speaking to Hindustan Times, said Yadav also holds clout over 20 JD (U) MLAs who may act in his favour.

"I will undertake a yatra in the state and talk to the people", he added.

Taylor Swift's groping trial begins
Former disc jockey David Mueller has acknowledged that a photo of him with his hand behind Taylor Swift is "weird and awkward". In addition, Baldridge referenced Mueller's description of Swift in a court deposition as cold and standoffish.

The JD (U) has distanced itself from Sharad Yadav's tour. The fall of the Grand Alliance government was seen as a huge blow for opposition unity, and many in Bihar feel that Nitish Kumar betrayed the popular mandate, which overwhelmingly backed the Grand Alliance over the saffron coalition in 2015.

Earlier in the day, he said that the people supported the grand alliance and expected a lot from it, adding that they were hurt with its failure.

None of the JD (U) legislators including those who were considered close to Sharad Yadav was present when he arrived at Patna airport on Thursday.

Yadav will visit almost eight to ten constituencies of Bihar from August 10 to 12 and will hold discussions.

"Sharad Yadav is compromising with corruption by supporting the Grand Alliance in Bihar", JD-U Chief Spokesperson Sanjay Singh said. "I continue to stand for the "gathbandhan"," he said.

The gloves are off as Sharad Yadav of the Janata Dal (United) began a three-day yatra or tour of Bihar with his sharpest attack yet on party boss Nitish Kumar, created to provoke the Chief Minister into taking action against him. Even on way to Muzaffarpur, he was received by Sonepur RJD MLA and other RJD leaders at different places. In that scenario, Sharad will form his own party. "Nitish ji should answer to people how he is running government with such tainted people", Tejashwi said.Coming down heavily on the CM for breaking Mahagathbandhan, he said, "Aisa koi saga nahi, jise Nitish ne thaga nahi". Sources said instructions have been issued to JD (U) functionaries not to participate in Sharad's yatra to avoid disciplinary action.
