JD (U)'s Sharad Yadav congratulates Ahmed Patel for overcoming 'toughest hurdles' in Gujarat RS win

The JD (U) is expected to endorse a proposal to join the NDA in its national executive meeting in Patna on August 19.

This was their first in-person interaction since Nitish reconfigured his government in Bihar to include the BJP last month.

Nitish Kumar is the Janata Dal-United national president and said to fully control the party in Bihar.

Speaking at Madhepura in north Bihar, the former JD (U) chief said he continued to be a part of the mahagathbandhan or grand alliance that defeated the BJP in 2015 assembly elections in the state.

Sebastian Gorka denies dismissing Tillerson's role on North Korea
This morning , North Korea said it was "carefully examining" a plan to strike the U.S. territory of Guam with ballistic missiles. Ben Cardin, the Foreign affairs committee's top Democrat, compared Trump's comments to those issued by North Korea itself.

Acknowledging Yadav's seniority in the party, the JD (U) leader said, "Sharadji is one of the founding members of the party, but it pains us that the path chosen by him leads to our rival, the Rashtriya Janata Dal".

But this break up was short lived as he declared his inability to continue running the Grand Alliance government with corruption tainted RJD leadership and weakening Congress in July this year. He also challenged both these leaders to seek re-election.

JD (U) sources said the decision to sack Yadav was conveyed to vice president Venkiah Naidu, who is also the chairperson of the Upper House.

On August 8, after JD (U) MLA in Gujarat Chhotubhai Vasava voted for Congress candidate Ahmed Patel in the Rajya Sabha polls, the party suspended its general secretary in-charge of Gujarat, Arun Srivastava.

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. He made it clear that the JD (U) has already chose to align with the BJP. "Sarkari JD (U) is with Nitish Kumar, while the original party is with me".

The JD (U) has distanced itself from Yadav's tour and has gradually started talking tough against him.

Singh said the step had to be taken due to Yadav's "recent actions".

He (Yadav) is free to take his decision.
