New Delhi: In his first public reaction on the political upheaval in Bihar, former JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav on Monday termed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s decision to break away from the Mahagathbandhan as “unfortunate”.
“We are sad. I don’t agree with this decision in Bihar. It’s unfortunate. The mandate given by the people was not for this… The people had voted for the Mahagathbandhan,” he told mediapersons in the national capital.
CNN-News18 had reported last week that Yadav was unhappy with Nitish Kumar’s decision to quit the alliance with the RJD and the Congress, and return to the NDA.
Yadav had on Sunday questioned the BJP on its election promise of bringing back black money. In a tweet, Yadav had also questioned why those named in the Panama Papers expose were yet to be “caught”.

There have been rumours of a rift in the JD(U) since Nitish Kumar stepped down as Chief Minister last Wednesday over corruption allegations against Tejashwi Yadav — the then deputy chief minister and son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.
Nitish returned as the CM the next day, but with BJP support this time.
The Patna High Court has dismissed petitions challenging the formation of the new government, saying no intervention of the court is required after floor test in the state Assembly.
