PATNA: JD-U MP Sharad Yadav is planning to form his own party angry at the Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar’s move to break alliance with the Grand Alliance and forming government with the BJP instead, media reports said.
According to reports in the local media, Yadav could announce formation of his party in a day or two.
“Yadav will not be a part of the NDA. Instead, he will stay with the Grand Alliance,” Vijay Verma, a close aid of Yadav, was quoted as telling the local media on Wednesday.
Yadav has been miffed with Nitish Kumar ever since he walked out of the Grand Alliance and formed government with the support of the NDA.
He has described the development as “unpleasant” and cheating with the masses.
“110 million people of Bihar had voted for the Grand Alliance but people’s faith stands smashed now. It’s very unpleasant, distressing,” Yadav told the media in Delhi on Tuesday.
Reacting to the report, JD-U spokesperson Sanjay Singh said Sharad Yadav was free to chart out his own course of action.
