JD-U is my party, Grand Alliance remains intact: Sharad Yadav

Sharad Yadav
Rebel Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav on Saturday launched a veiled attack at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for forging an alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party and said the promise of grand alliance was for five years.

Yadav, who was sacked as JD-U’s Rajya Sabha leader said that JD-U is his party and that the grand alliance remains intact.

“We promised to continue this alliance for at least five years. The public gave us opportunity. The manifesto is our commitment for five years. The people of Bihar vested faith in us. I am not happy with alliance breaking,” he said during Jan Adalat programme in Patna.

Yadav launched a veiled attack at the JD-U faction led by Nitish Kumar and said he contributed in forming the party and now he was being asked to leave it.

“I formed the party and some people are telling me that this is not my home. People are raising questions over my intention. I went to attend JD-U’s national executive committee meeting but they didn’t allow me to participate and said that I don’t belong to their party,” he added.

Yadav, who is miffed with Nitish Kumar for severing ties with grand alliance and joining hands with the BJP, had earlier called for a convention ‘Sanjhi Virasat Bachao’ in Delhi on Thursday with an aim to safeguard the ‘composite culture’ of India.
