In another development, JD-U RS MP Ali Anwar Ansari was suspended from parliamentary party for taking part in opposition meeting, says spokesperson K C Tyagi. After Nitish forming the new government in alliance with BJP, JD (U) was excluded from the meeting, however, an invitation was sent to Sharad Yadav.

Summary: Ali Anwar, who was suspended from Janata Dal (United) parliamentary party, on Saturday said history will not forgive Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar for going against the mandate of the people of Bihar, which was given in favour of the grand alliance. Today (Saturday), they removed Sharad Yadav, who was the founding member of JD-U, from the leadership of the parliamentary party. He had yesterday claimed that the real JD (U) is with him while Kumar heads "sarkari" faction.

Justifying his actions for going against the party to attend the opposition's meeting organised by Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Anwar said he was just following people's mandate. "We are holding a party meeting on August 19, but I don't think that Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar will come", JD (U) general secretary K.C. Tyagi said, while addressing a press conference.

Ansari had criticised Kumar's decision to walk out of the JD (U)-RJD-Congress Grand Alliance in Bihar and form the government with the BJP. Ansari has said he is opposed to the BJP's social and economic policies and is ready to face any punishment if the party so decides. Though it may amount to little as his tenure comes to an end during the next budget session.
