Sharad Yadav may lose RS membership; JD(U) to move RS Chairman

Among those stuck was Congress MP Jairam Ramesh who had an appointment with the President at 11.30

Addressing the gathering at Rashtriya Janata Dal's (RJD) anti-BJP rally in Patna, Sharad Yadav said, "I am hurt due to the fall of the Grand Alliance government in Bihar, but I promise to build another one at the national level".

The opposition parties have already concluded that they can not win 2019 general elections, BJP general secretary Ram Madhav said here today.

Rebel JD-U leader Sharad Yadav shared a stage for the first time with RJD chiefignoring the JD-U's warning not to attend it.

"By attending today's rally he has created a problem for his membership, (JDU) will soon apprise Rajya Sabha Chairman", said Tyagi, who is also the member of the Upper House.

KC Tyagi also said that according to the law, Sharad Yadav might lose his Rajya Sabha membership for anti-party activity.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi chose to visit Norway when the leaders of his party in Gujarat wanted to kick off their campaign for Assembly elections, Madhav claimed.

"Earlier it was rally of the RJD, but now it has become a rally of Mahagatbandhan (grand alliance) to save the country", Sharad Yadav, who is staring at an expulsion from the party for defying orders, told reporters at Jay Prakash Narayan Airport in Patna on his arrival on Saturday. Once it was promised by the Congress's Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati that they would also be there with Lalu Yadav in his grand Anti-BJP rally in Patna, but they all missed it. Rahul Gandhi went for political and business leaders meeting in Norwegian capital Oslo last week. For Congress, Ghulam Nabi Azad will represent the party at the event.

Prasad, his wife, sons Tejaswi and Tej Pratap Yadav and daughter Misa Bharti, a Rajya Sabha MP, were seated on the front row of the VVIP dais greeting leaders from other parties on their arrival.

"It was to oppose communal forces...fascist forces [that] I supported Nitish Kumar as Chief Minister, though I knew him well that he is not a trustworthy person but the situation demanded so...and see how overnight he did a turnaround and solemnized his marriage with the BJP in hours", said Mr Prasad in his half-hour scathing attack. He added that the robbery of people's mandate will never let Nitish have a sound sleep and that Kumar doesn't have the courage to face the public, Indian Express reported.

Notably, Gandhi Maidan, the rally ground, which has a capacity of seven lakh people, was reportedly packed.
