Amit Shah formally invites Nitish Kumar-led JD(U) to join NDA


"He has just been replaced with RCP Singh [as party leader in the Rajya Sabha]".

Confirming about the formal invite, Shah on Saturday tweeted, "I met JD (U) president Nitish Kumar at my residence yesterday". Blaming the turn of events on election day on Congress internal groups, bickering and disenchantment of MLAs against the party's top leadership, BJP spokesperson Bharat Pandya said in a statement, "Our candidate, Balvantsinh Rajput, will take this up legally".

Last month, BJP's mounting pressure on Nitish to oust then Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav from the Cabinet led to the departure of JD-U and RJD led "mahagadhbandhan" government in Bihar with Nitish's resignation. A delegation of seven Rajya Sabha and two Lok Sabha members submitted a letter Naidu.

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.

"MP Ali Anwar stands suspended from JD (U)'s parliamentary party after he participated in the Opposition parties' meeting". "The trust of 11 crore people who gave mandate to form the Grand Alliance government in Bihar in 2015 has been broken", he said. However, ANI quoted JD (U) leader K C Tyagi as saying "our MLA has voted for BJP".

Nitish Kumar is the JD (U) national president and said to fully control the party in Bihar. Keeping a track of all the actions of Sharad Nitish and JD (U) are clear that Sharad is going against the party and will soon move to a split in the party. During his public meetings, Sharad Yadav has criticised Nitish Kumar for "betrayal of mandate" in the state.

Mr. Yadav, who is on a tour of Bihar, has said he still believes he is a part of the grand alliance with the RJD and the Congress.
