New Delhi: Bihar Prime Minister Nitish Kumar said Friday that former Janata leader Dal Sharad Yadav has every right to make his own decision as to where his loyalty is, adding the decision to form an alliance with Bharatiya Janata Party) It was done with the consent of the whole party.
“Sharad Yadav is free to make his own decision. As far as the party is concerned, the party has made his decision. The decision taken is not based on my will alone, had been done with the consent of the entire party. Clear before too, but if you still want to present your opinion then you are free to do so, “Kumar said.
Yadav has rebelled against party chairman and Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar for breaking the grand alliance to join the BJP’s hands last month.
Also, with Sonia Gandhi inviting Sharad Yadav at the opposition meeting today, the party has fallen heavily on the President of Congress by saying that she is trying to create a rift within the Kumar-led Nitish party.
Speaking to ANI, JD (U) General Secretary KC Tyagi said: “Calling our party members at the meeting of opposition leaders reveals the misguided intentions of Sonia Gandhi. We have already broken our ties with UPA And Mahagathbandhan, among the members of the party. ”
The controversy erupted after Sharad Yadav declared Thursday in Patna that he was still with the Great Alliance of RJD and Congress.
This happened after Nitish broke ties last month with the Great Alliance of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Congress, to form a government in Bihar with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Another wagon was added in the midst of the “battle” of Bihar, when Yadav announced that he would launch a three-day Jan-Samvad Yatra to discuss the repercussions of the withdrawal of the great alliance in the state, adding that “faith” Of 11 people crore of Bihar was ‘broken’.
Addressing the media, Yadav said that the people who established the mandate were hurt by the general situation.
“I have been conducting demonstrations for 40 years, even during the elections, we stayed in Bihar, we did their publicity and we fulfilled the mandate,” Yadav said.
The senior party leader also said that the mandate should be for five years, which did not happen and are disappointed.
“A manifesto was ours and a manifesto was that of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). In the 70 years of history, I can not find an example where two opposition parties have a common manifesto,” he said.
Yadav also said that these are “worried” times for democracy in Bihar.
“I would like to say that I am still with the mandate and I will meet some friends of the Janata Dal,” he added.
Yadav will visit eight to ten Bihar constituencies from 10 to 12 August and will hold talks.
Day one of the tour will see Yadav covering Patna-Sonpur-Muzaffarpur, while on day two will be visiting Muzaffarpur-Darbhanga-Madhubani.happy wheels
