Amit Shah invites Nitish Kumar to join NDA; Bihar politics heats up

Janata Dal United on Saturday removed senior party leader and Rajya Sabha member Sharad Yadav as party leader in Rajya Sabha. "I invited JD (U) to join the NDA", Mr Shah said in a tweet today. Nitish had responded like this because Sharad Yadav has been openly criticizing Nitish for his decision to join the BJP.

The senior party leader has raised questions over the alliance saying that this decision has broken the trust of those who voted for JD (U). He made it clear that the JD (U) has already chose to align with the BJP.

Differences between Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Yadav surfaced after the former parted ways with Lalu Prasad-led Rashtriya Janata Dal and formed a new government with the support of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Bihar last month.

He has taken care of such concerns in the Bihar council of ministers. The BJP is keen to rope in Nitish Kumar in an important role in the NDA. We founded the party.

He added that this was not a personal fight against Nitish Kumar but a fight of principles and to save democracy and brotherhood.
