Sharad Yadav has also served as the president of JD(U) and currently a member of Rajya Sabha.
The announcement has come a few days after Mulayam Singh Yadav announced that his party would not enter into an alliance with any party but maintained that the door was open for merger.
Raising the issue during the Zero Hour, Yadav noted that recently 10 solders were buried under the ice after an avalanche hit a military post in Siachen, the highest battlefield in the world.
The rally would be organised at Shibpur off GT Road near Aloka Cinema Hall at 6 pm.
Taking an indirect dig at Yadav, the RJD chief said Nitish Kumar emerged as the only alternative to Yadav, who insisted after quitting as the JD(U) president that he had not yet retired.
With Sharad Yadav completing three terms – the maximum permitted by JD (U)’s constitution – there was no name other than Nitish Kumar.
“The government should immediately reveal the truth of black money parked overseas which the BJP had promised before coming to power at the Centre,” Yadav said.
