"We want it on record that though Sharad Yadav does not agree with party's decisions but there is no rift in the party".

"Break the JD (U) legislative party if you have the might.prove a two-thirds majority within the party for breaking it, otherwise your membership will go", Kumar said, throwing a challenge to his detractors, led by Yadav.

At a national executive meeting held on Saturday (August 19) in Patna, Nitish's faction - also the majority within the party -passed a resolution to join the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Visitors trail by 470 runs when rain calls an early halt to day two of the maiden day-night Test on United Kingdom soil. Umpire Marais Erasmus was initially unmoved, but three red lights on Ball Tracker prompted him to alter his decision.

The national executive took no decision on action against Yadav.

Earlier in the day, JDU leader KC Tyagi suggesting Sharad Yadav not to attend Lalu Yadav's programme said, he can sort out the differences by expressing his views on party forum.

Sharad Yadav, who had expressed his displeasure over Mr. Kumar's decision to forge an alliance with BJP, is holding a separate "Jan Adalat" meeting at Patna's Sri Krsihna memorial Hall. However, when last month Nitish Kumar ended his mahagathbandhan or Grand Alliance with Lalu Yadav's RJD and the Congress and formed the government with the help of the BJP, the reunion seemed inevitable.

Missouri Senate President Calls for Chapelle-Nadal's Resignation
If her fellow Democrats can't convince her to resign , then her colleagues in the Missouri legislature need to act to expel her. The senator dismissed calls from other politicians, including some within her own party, to resign. "I condemn it.

While supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's comments against violence in the name of faith, Yadav said it was not reflected on the ground and Modi needed to tell his party's governments to follow his dictum. "No split is going to happen, all the party MPs, MLA are with us".

JD-U spokesperson K.C. Tyagi said on Monday. "If he attends Lalu's rally, Sharad will ruin his political stature", he said. The way Nitish Kumar changed sides was surprising. JD (U) has returned to NDA after a gap of four years. It is in this context that Nitish's ideological U-turn becomes not just conspicuous but also faces the risk of being called as opportunistic.

"I welcome the JD (U) decision of joining NDA, as this will not only strengthen the NDA but will also begin a new era of development and growth in Bihar", Shah said.
