Sharad Yadav

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.

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.
