Patna: With stage set for the possible expulsion of Sharad Yadav from the Janata Dal – U for going against his own party, the former JD-U President arrived in Patna on Thursday to begin his so-called 'Janata se Seedha Samvad' yatra in an attempt to feel the nerve of the people of Bihar whether they were still solidly behind Chief Minister Nitish Kumar or were angry at him for gutting the JDU-RJD-Congress Grand Alliance in the state in favor of the BJP-led NDA.

Yadav, after arriving at the Patna Airport, drove straight to Sonepur in Vaishali district where he slammed Nitish Kumar saying he betrayed the people of Bihar who had given the mandate to the Grand Alliance and not to the NDA.

"I was in the Grand Alliance along with Lalu Prasad Yadav and Congress Party in the past and I will continue to remain in it. Nitish Kumar, by going back into the NDA fold, has insulted millions of voters who had voted for the Grand Alliance and not for the NDA," Yadav, who has no political base in Bihar without the JD-U, said.

Claiming most of the JD-U leaders were with him, Sharad Yadav said that his was the real JD-U while the party run by Nitish Kumar was the party of bureaucrats.

"I am the leader of the real JD-U and a large number of party leaders along with the people of Bihar are with me. I will fight out this battle on the streets of Bihar," Yadav said in Sonepur where most attendees were supporters of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).

While Nitish Kumar himself hasn't said a word about Sharad Yadav, party spokespersons Ajay Alok, Neeraj Kumar, and party national General Secretary K C Tyagi admonished Sharad Yadav to 'remain within his limit'.

"Sharad Yadav is being remote-controlled by Lalu Prasad Yadav. The two are trying to fool the people of Bihar but the public now knows everything about them," Alok said.

Meanwhile, JD-U has sent out a notice to all JD-U members issuing a warning to them of action against them if they tried to attend any of the Sharad Yadav rallies in Bihar.
