"All the party legislators, leaders, who are close to the government for personal benefit are with Nitish Kumar, but leaders and workers close to the people are with me", Sharad Yadav said.

In another development, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah invited the JDU to rejoin the NDA.

"When we are together in government in Bihar it is only natural that our party joins the Union government", he said.

Senior Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav was sacked as party's leader in the Rajya Sabha on Saturday for his public disapproval of Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar's decision to quit the Mahagathbandhan and re-join the BJP led alliance.

JD (U) national general secretary KC Tyagi said, "Nitish Kumar himself will moot the proposal for joining the NDA, which will be passed unanimously".

Yadav is now leading a campaign against the party in Bihar against Nitish Kumar's move to from Government with BJP support after pulling out of the Grand Alliance with the RJD and Congress.


On Saturday, Sharad Yadav shot back at Nitish Kumar.

Earlier, Sharaad Yadav made it clear that he is still with the Grand Alliance of the RJD and Congress and that the mandate was given to the Grand Alliance and not the BJP. He claims the support of 20 MLAs in Bihar.

"First, Nitish took the decision to go with the BJP without calling the national executive". Srivastava had opposed Nitish's decision to align with the BJP.

JD (U)'s Bihar state president, Vashistha Narain Singh has confirmed the reports saying that the move was taken in the wake of Yadav's recent anti-party activities.

Hitting out at Kumar, Anwar said that people who brought the party to its glory were being "removed" from party posts.

"Yesterday (Friday) they suspended me from the parliamentary party". Sharad Yadav has called a conclave on "sanjhi virasat bachao" (save composite culture) at Constitution Club in the capital.
