Bihar CM Nitish Kumar led Janata Dal (United) passed a resolution to join National Democratic Alliance in the party’s national executive meeting on Saturday. In the meantime, security has been increased outside chief minister’s house where JD(U) meet is underway after protest by Sharad Yadav and RJD supporters.

Nitish had resigned as the CM of Bihar and snapped the grand alliance with the RJD and the Congress in July. He took oath as the chief minister with the NDA-led BJP’s support the very next day. Nitish ended his two-year grand alliance with RJD and Congress, saying a “call of conscience” over corruption charges slapped against Lalu Prasad Yadav’s son Tejaswi Yadav.

Lalu, his wife Rabri Devi and Tejaswi are central to a CBI inquiry into the land-for-hotels deal when Lalu was the Union railways minister.

Nitish had almost a decade long coalition with NDA before he split in 2013. But, the JD(U) was abridged to two seats in the 2014 polls. Nitish then teamed up with Lalu Prasad Yadav and the Congress. The association made NDA faces its first big defeat in the 2015 state polls.
