Nitish does not belong to JD (U) anymore: Lalu Prasad Yadav

RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav India Tv

Meanwhile, Anwar on Saturday said history would not forgive Nitish Kumar for going against the mandate of the people of Bihar in favour of the so-called grand alliance of the JD (U), RJD and Congress. Vaghela, whose resignation from the Congress on July 21 triggered the crisis for the party, voted for BJP even though he had told Ahmed Patel even a day before polling that his vote was "reserved" for Patel, according to a source in the party.

The split in the Janata Dal-United is all but apparent with the party removing Sharad Yadav as the leader in the Rajya Sabha. Had Patel lost, the morale of his party's workers in Gujarat, which goes for Assembly elections in five months, would have fallen further. He has gone to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The victory came as a major boost for the Congress party. In addition, six party MLAs did not vote since they had quit the party and resigned from membership of the legislative assembly. But then things began to deteriorate for the already beleaguered Congress at a break-neck speed. Next came the resignation of six Congress MLAs, three of whom, including Balwantsinh Rajput, joined the BJP nearly immediately. While the Congress continued to cry foul about the BJP's "dirty tricks department", Amit Shah expectedly stayed focused on the RS battle.

Recently Sharad has been openly showing his disappointment with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar by criticising his decision of forming the new government in alliance with BJP.

If the two votes had not been rejected, Rajput would have got 41 and the shortfall of four would have been filled by second preference votes.

This means that out of its original lot of 57 MLA, the Congress now has been reduced to just 41 legislators.
