Yadav said the JD-U faction led by Nitish Kumar would "lose count of partymen they will have to suspend if he tours the whole of Bihar". It is possible that Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Tariq Anwar also attends the conference. A forum like the one to be launched by Yadav could help the JD (U) leader and his supporters to coordinate with Sitaram Yechury-led CPI (M). Not a single MLA or Minister came to meet Yadav while he was touring Bihar. Yadav, who was then the JD (U) chief, sided with Nitish's decision after much convincing.

Among those suspended includes former minister Ramai Ram, former MP Arjun Rai and former MLA Rajkishor Sinha.

"We will not leave the party". Majority were seen with Sharad during his three-day "Samvad Yatra" in north Bihar.

Besides, a few district level office bearers of the party have also been suspended for indulging in "anti-party activities", the statement said.

Shard, who described the JD (U)'s decision to walk out of the Bihar's grand alliance of RJD, JD (U) and Congress, as "betrayal" of the mandate, was recently removed as the party's parliamentary party leader in the Rajya Sabha. He has been replaced with Rajya Sabha member RCP Singh, who is likely to find a cabinet berth in the union cabinet expansion.

Tyagi insisted that Yadav had "voluntarily given up" the JD-U and that it would be "very difficult" for party leadership to take action against him, like it had done in case of 21 rebels or Ali Anwar Ansari.

Two fellow JD (U) MPs and a dozen-odd party units outside Bihar have sided with Sharad Yadav.

JD (U) national spokesperson KC Tyagi said Yadav has "voluntarily left" the party.

Union Minister and Lok Janshakti Party chief Ram Vilas Paswan on Tuesday challenged Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav to prove his charge that he accumulated wealth worth crores of rupees, adding he quit politics if at fault.
