JDU's RS MP replaces Sharad Yadav, may join Union Cabinet

Marking a deep rift in the party, the Nitish Kumar faction on Saturday removed senior leader and former party president Sharad Yadav as head of its parliamentary party in the Rajya Sabha, and replaced him with Ram Chandra Prasad Singh. Paswan also said that an inquiry should be made in the death of around 60 children in Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh and action should be taken against the responsible. Mr Yadav had opposed the party's decision to ally with the BJP in Bihar.

"Anyway, he has become a part of the NDA". Sources said that while one person from the JDU would be given a Cabinet berth, another may be given a Minister of State rank as and when the Cabinet expansion happens.

Both Ansari and Srivastava, along with Rajya Sabha member Veerendra Kumar, had attended a meeting at Yadav's residence on July 27. Patel was welcomed in the Upper House and Central Hall with rounds of applause and cheery desk-thumping gestures by his supporter.

On Friday, the JD (U) had suspended its Rajya Sabha member Ali Anwar Ansari from the parliamentary party for attending a meeting of opposition parties convened by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.

Speculation swirled over his remarks that the party could suspend him.
