RPC Singh replaces Sharad Yadav as the party leader in Rajya Sabha

Guwahati Aug 11 A third wave of floods hit Assam on Friday inundating over 700 villages in 15 districts and affecting over three lakh people

The JD (U) has 12 members in Parliament, two in the Lok Sabha and 10 in the Rajya Sabha. Last night, the JD (U) had sacked Arun Shrivastav, considered a close confidante of Yadav, from the post of party general secretary for "unauthorisedly" writing to the Returning Officer of Gujarat Assembly appointing an election agent for the crucial Rajya Sabha election there. Amid stifling tension in JD (U) corridors, Congress President Sonia Gandhi called for a unity meet on Friday. However, ANI quoted JD (U) leader K C Tyagi as saying "our MLA has voted for BJP". Calling the move a "necessary step", Narayan said that if a person who is a leader indulges in anti-party activities, it must be condemned.

He has also initiated a three-day interaction programme across Bihar to talk to the people and know their opinion about the new government formed.

Apart from this, due to the continuous questioning of the decision by Nitish to form a government with the BJP, a possible show-cause notice can also be issued to Sharad Yadav. Further, the JD (U) recently allied with the BJP after party chief Nitish Kumar quit the "grand alliance" coalition in Bihar.

Getting tough on its senior leader Sharad Yadav, the Janata Dal United has submitted a letter to vice-president to remove him from Rajya Sabha as the party leader, according to reports.


Mr Singh is a trusted lieutenant of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Earlier, Sharaad Yadav made it clear that he is still with the Grand Alliance of the RJD and Congress and that the mandate was given to the Grand Alliance and not the BJP.

Janata Dal (U) Rajya Sabha members on Saturday removed Sharad Yadav as their leader in the House and replaced him with R.C.P Singh, a senior party leader said.
