The Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)) on Saturday said that senior party leader Sharad Yadav was replaced by Ram Chander Singh in the Rajya Sabha because of his anti-party activities.
“This was important and was done owing to Sharad Yadav’s anti-party activities”, MP Vashistha Narayan Singh said, as quoted by ANI.
He added that the members of Parliament showed their disappointment to the authorities regarding Sharad Yadav’s three-day Jan Samvad Yatra, which started on August 10, irrespective of whether they belonged to the Rajya Sabha or the Lok Sabha,
“We unanimously elected Ram Chandar as our leader in Rajya Sabha,” Singh said, adding that it was an important step, because “a leader getting involved in anti-party activities is not good.”
“The whole party agreed to Nitish Kumar’s decision to dissociate itself from the grand alliance in Bihar,” the MP added.
He further stated that the party is going to have a committee meeting on 19 August, that will take a final call.
Earlier on Saturday, Yadav claimed that he had sent fellow party leader, Ali Anwar Ansari to attend a meeting of opposition parties convened by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi so that Bihar-like grand alliance is replicated countrywide.
Sharad Yadav had begun his three-day Jan Samvad Yatra on August 10
