Sharad Yadav Not to Seek 4th Term as JD(U) President
NEW DELHI: JD(U) is set to elect a new president in its National Council meeting here on April 10, bringing an end to the over 10year long tenure of Sharad Yadav, who has decided not to seek a fourth consecutive term. “Sharad Yadav as party president has completed his three successive terms. He has now refused to make any amendment in the party constitution so as to elect him for the next coming term,” party spokesperson KC Tyagi said on Monday. Yadav, one of the founder leaders of the party along with Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, has been at the helm since 2006 and was reelected for a third term in 2013 by amending the party’s constitution which then allowed a maximum of two tenures.
