One or two member can't divide us, says JD(U)

Singh said the step had to be taken due to Yadav's "recent actions". If he keeps a different opinion, then he is free to do so, Nitish had told reporters after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The JD (U) national general secretary, K C Tyagi, said, "Nitish Kumar will moot the proposal for joining the NDA, which will be passed unanimously".

The party is going to have a committee meeting on August 19 that will take the final decision, Singh said. "This party is not Kumar's alone but also belongs to me", said a seemingly defiant Yadav, a founder-leader of the party, who had merged his original Janata Dal with Kumar's Samata Party, in 2003, to form the JD (U).

Ossai also advised the youth to explore the opportunity provided by the party's convention to contribute to national development. In a statement by his spokesman, Paul Mumeh, Mark expressed optimism about the future of the party after the convention.

The Janata Dal-United president Nitish Kumar on July 26 snapped ties with the Grand Alliance of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress.

On Friday, the JD (U) had suspended its Rajya Sabha member Ali Anwar Ansari from the parliamentary party for attending a meeting of opposition parties convened by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. Now, that Sharad has been removed the party's leader post in Rajya Sabha, he will have to sit in the back benches. It has been a misfortune of Bihar that for 27 years the party which ruled the state was not part of the government at the Centre.

While the JD (U) has 10 members in the Rajya Sabha, including Yadav, two of them - Ali Anwar Ansari and M P Veerendra Kumar - have spoken out against Nitish. Sources said that while one person from the JDU would be given a Cabinet berth, another may be given a Minister of State rank as and when the Cabinet expansion happens.

Summary: "It is Kumar who changed the mandate given by 11 crore people in favour of Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance)".

Miffed with Nitish, Yadav, is on a three-day tour to Bihar to hold "direct dialogue" with the people.

The JD (U) spokesperson alleged that Sharad Yadav won from Madhepura with the BJP's support in 1999. "Sharad-led faction is the real JD-U while the other one has become a "government JD-U" and Bharatiya JD-(U)", Ansari said while briefing mediapersons.
