Amidst the ongoing rift, between Bihar chief minister, Nitish Kumar and rebel leader, Sharad Yadav, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday displayed their firm support for the former and said that Yadav has absolutely had no locus of his own.
“Firstly, the issue of Sharad Yadav is an internal matter of JD(U), BJP has nothing to do with it. But as a political observer, I can say that Nitish Kumar had been the real leader of his party and Sharad Yadav absolutely had no locus of his own”, said BJP spokesman, GVL Narasimha Rao, as quoted by ANI.
He further said that Yadav is remembered only for making atrocious comments against women, asserting there is no political grasp that he has that he can challenge Nitish Kumar.
The JD(U) had said that party leader, Sharad Yadav, will face action if he attends Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo, Lalu Prasad Yadav’s rally.
“Our general secretary( KC Tyagi) has clearly stated that if he (Sharad Yadav) attends Lalu’s rally, then he should be ready to face serious consequences”, said JD(U) leader, Ajay Alok said.
Tyagi said that the party has not acted against Sharad Yadav for his “anti-party activities” because of his seniority and long association with the party.
“If he attends RJD chief, Lalu Prasad’s rally on 27 August, he will cross the Lakshman Rekha,” he said, and hinted at action against him.
