JD(U) Rajya Sabha MP Sharad Yadav, who is headed for a showdown with party chief and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, on Thursday said he will undertake a yatra in the state and talk to the people as part of his three-day ‘Jan Samvad’ programme. The mass contact programme will take place in 10 districts of Bihar. This interaction, according to Sharad Yadav, is aimed at ‘seeking a way out’. Speaking to ANI on the breaking up of the Grand Alliance, comprising RJD, JD(U) and Congress, Yadav said, “Gathbandan humne 5 saal ke liye kiya tha, 11 crore logon ka vishvaas toota (The Grand Alliance was forged for five years, trust of 11 crore people has broken).”

Sharad Yadav, who founded the JD(U), stated on Wednesday that the Grand Alliance was “a kind of an agreement with people” of Bihar. Meanwhile, commenting on Sharad Yadav’s mass contact programme, JD(U) chief Bashishta Narain Singh had told the Indian Express that it’s a personal visit and the party doesn’t have anything to do with it. “His (Yadav’s) recent activities are against the stated stand of the JD(U),” Singh said.

On Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s decision to break away from the Grand Alliance and join the NDA, Singh said, “JD(U)’s extended legislature party meeting, attended not only by MLAs and MLCs but also district presidents and office-bearers, had authorised Nitish Kumar to take a decision keeping in view larger interests of the party and the state.”

Sharad Yadav is likely to announce his next political move in a couple of days.

    Sharad Yadav is fighting against the unprincipled policies of BJP. BJP has stashed such crores and crores of black money that it can bribe crores of Rupees, and purchase MLAs in many states like Gujrat, Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Manipur etc.

      It seems Sharad Yadav is bought by Lallu and if not he is also part and parcel of the scams and loots indulged by RJD Family Party which is the reason still he supports the corrupt parties of RJD and Congress !!! Whomsoever indulges in Corrupt practices are thrown away by Nitish and that is the reason he has earned his respect among the Biharis and as well across the Nation whereas Sharad Yadav thinks in the name of Secularism, corruption is allowed and who had given him that power and will he explain is the ????

        RJD won more seats than JD(U) ,,, all of the bjp and rss talk about the property and corruption by lalu's family but what about the vyapam scam in which more than 40 people associated with it have been murdered ,, no one wants to talk about it ,,, whenever there is a corruption relating to any bjp member all the honesty just goes down the drain ,,, corruption for bjp is selective ,,, they themselves are deep down in the same corruption ,,,, they are constantly attacking politicians or activist who spread the secualr ideology by calling them as pseudo seculars or anti - nationals ,,, someone needs to stand up to these so called "nationalists" because they are a threat to the democracy ,,,

        Sharadji dont worry we all secular, dalits, obc/SC/ST except suwarna jatti in Bihar are with you, break JDU and form govt with congress and RJD once again in Bihar. Nitish Kumar is a selfish politician whenever he sees that his chair is in trouble, he immediately switches the side and make enemy his friend, this is his historical track record of his political career, you know better than us since you are the founding father of JDU, but Nitish has hijacked JDU for his own political gains and not looking to the future of JDU and not taking all party men into confidence whenever he takes important political decisions of JDU party., It's time that you and presidents of all the units in the India kick Nitish from the party and approach the EC to give you the Arrow symbol to your newly formed party. Nitish will be nowhere, but he will merge his own faction into BJP take my words, He is not trustworthy politician, You merge your faction either with Congress or RJD

              If Nitish left the alliance for his ideals he should have taken his chances with the electorate again. Nitish Kumar is an opportunist plain and simple. Spokes persons like pawan varma for all their refinement and logic can suddenly turn their logic right around when it suits them. The BJP only cries out about corruption if it is against other parties (who sure are corrupt), but when it comes to corruption against their own party they are the most thick skinned party and have been riding out scandal after scandal.
