This is the first official communication between Nitish Kumar and the BJP, post the Nitish aligning with the BJP in Bihar. "Sharad Yadav-led faction is the real JD (U) while the other one has become a 'Sarkari JD (U)' and Bharatiya JD (U)", Ansari said while briefing the media persons. A day after meeting the Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, BJP chief Amit Shah stated that the JD (U) has formally been invited to join the NDA.

JD (U) has finally started taking decisions against Sharad Yadav, one of the foundation pillars of the party, who has now turned anti-JD (U). The party is recognised in Bihar only, where he does not have a single MLA or MP.

Earlier today, Sharad Yadav said that JD-U is not only Bihar CM Nitish Kumar's party, but also his party.

Party leader KC Tyagi said Ansari has been "suspended from the parliamentary party" for attending the meeting. Srivastava had opposed Nitish's decision to align with the BJP.

"There is no question of leaving the party (JD-U)".

On Thursday, Sharad Yadav had said that he was still with RJD, Congress-led Mahagathbandhan.

In the eurozone, the Paris CAC 40 dropped nearly 0.7 per cent to 5,081.92 points compared with the closing level on Thursday. The pound has slipped by 0.1 percent versus the dollar, but has gained 0.1 percent against the euro.

Sharad said, "The decision to join hands with BJP and formation of government in Bihar was against Bihar's majority".

Summary: "It is Kumar who changed the mandate given by 11 crore people in favour of Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance)".

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

Speculation swirled over his remarks that the party could suspend him.

"Yadav's removal as leader of the party in Rajya Sabha is just the beginning". Though the latter lacks a support base of the nature of other mass leaders, his stature as a senior leader from the Mandal camp is seen as a political asset which, coupled with the backing of other opposition parties, could provide ballast for their campaign in Bihar. We will go to the people.
