All Eyes on Sharad’s Public Meetings
New Delhi: All eyes are now on senior JD U leader and Rajya Sabha member Sharada Yadav’s three-day public interaction programme beginning from Thursday. Sharad, who will make his first public appearance in Bihar after terming JDU national president and Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar’s decision to ally with BJP as betrayal of people’s mandate, willvisit at least 28 places, including Darbhanga, Supaul, Saharasa, Muzzaffarpur and Madhepura. His first halt will be at Sonepur town, a few kilometres away from Patna. He had represented Madhepura, where he would stay on August 12, at Lok Sabha .
Through his public interaction programme, he is supposed to gauge voters’ mood almost two weeks after Nitish joined hands with BJP and formed his government.
Sharad Yadav congratulating Congress leader Ahmad Patel on his victory in Rajya Sabha polls, clearly indicated that there is now no hope of reconciliation with Nitish Kumar. “Heartiest Congratulation on your victory in RS election in spite of toughest huddles. …..” Sharad has tweeted. JDU has already removed Arun Srivastava, who is considered close to Sharad, from the post of party’s general secretary.
