Former Janata Dal (United) [JD(U)] leader Sharad Yadav suffered another setback when he was disqualified from the Rajya Sabha following complaints from the party to vice-president Venkaiah Naidu who is also the ex-officio chairperson of the Upper House.Sharad Yadav’s political future looks uncertain with the latest development.
This was the third major jolt that he received in about as many years.
He suffered the first reverse in 2014 when, as a JD(U) candidate, he lost the Lok Sabha elections. Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) trounced him from Madhepura in a multi-cornered contest.Sharad Yadav’s real problems began after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who had replaced the former as the JD(U) president in April last year, broke ranks with the three-party alliance of the Mahagathbandhan government in July.
Nitish Kumar aligned with the BJP to form government in the eastern state against Sharad Yadav’s wishes.The two top JD(U) leaders parted ways.
Sharad Yadav rebelled against Nitish Kumar’s decision and found common cause with the Congress and RJD, the other two alliance partners of the erstwhile Mahagathbandhan government.
The JD(U) got divided into two factions, each led by Sharad Yadav and Nitish Kumar. The relations between the two reached a nadir when the Sharad Yadav faction, led by the party’s Gujarat MLA Chhotubhai Vasava, went against the party whip and voted for Congress candidate Ahmed Patel in the August Rajya Sabha election.
