    It is clear the political career of Sharad Yadav is coming to an end. The moment he decided to come out from JD(U)-original-Nitish Kumar, means he is moving to end his career. What hopes he is having on Lalu and Rajiv Gandhi ???? Why he could not apply his own views and now went behind Lalu ???? Nitish has taken the right decision. Sharad yadav should going behind Rajiv and Lalu means he is going to ruin his career, best of luck..

        This is the most funny situation, Mahaghatbhandan has become Yadav Bhandan. Now if all Yadav comes together it will become easier to create a policy to separate them out from the next voting cycle. But this Yadav akad which rest of the country is seeing, could be really dangerous for how much Yadav can form integration with the rest of the Country. It is a blessing in disguise that now all Yadav who represented the whole of UP and Bihar are nothing but gang of Yadavs. So the true color has come on top and now everyone is fully aware who they represent. Goondagardi kisiki nahin chalegi, chahe koi bhi ho, Yadavo ki Goondagardi kahi nahin chalegi.

          Asli Nan_ga Sharad Yadav hua hain! Badi social justice ki baat karta hain, Laloo Chare Ghotale mein to kya Sharad Yadav Court ko dum dega aab. Shahbuddin jo jail mein jise Laloo personal friend batata hain, wooh pure Bihar se bada hain. Badi badi baatein sun lo inki, social justice, representation, poor, Criminality is gone from the statements. Government of India should dug up this Sharad Yadav may have also gotten in touch with Shahbuddin, inki soch bahut kharab hain.

          it is a litmus test for both Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad in Bihar.Being CM of Bihar Nitish Kumar has upper hand with the support of Nrendra Modi.If Nitish Kumar succeeds next 6 months then he has no challenge from Lalu Prasad Sons.Presence of Sharad Yadav in Bihar politics is negligible but his Joining with Lalu Prasad will damage his re tion as a clean leader.
