Sharad Yadav not interested in Bihar's politics, he is restless: Rudy

News Agencies | Updated on: 31 July 2017, 15:04 IST

After Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav broke his silence on party colleague Nitish Kumar's political change-up and expressed his disappointment, Union Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy on Monday said that the Janata Dal (United) JD (U) leader is not interested in Bihar's politics and is simply restless at the moment.

Talking to the media, the Union Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship said Yadav doesn't have any societal or political contribution in Bihar.

"This was a major decision for the state. Nitish Kumar has taken a courageous step. I am in his support. Our only challenge is about how to continue the halted progress in Bihar. Sharad Yadav has his own anxiety. He doesn't have any interest in Bihar now. He is simply restless," he added.

Yadav, earlier in the day, expressed his disappointment over the prevailing situation in Bihar and said he doesn't agree with Nitish Kumar's decision to break the grand alliance with Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Congress and join hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"The current situation in Bihar is very disappointing for me. The mandate by the people of Bihar was not for this. I don't agree with the decision taken in Bihar. It's unfortunate," Yadav said.

Earlier on Thursday, JD (U) senior leaders asserted they had no idea about the decision being taken by Nitish Kumar.

Bihar saw a major midnight political drama soon after Nitish Kumar resigned last Wednesday as Bihar Chief Minister to protest against his deputy and RJD Supremo Lalu Yadav's son Tejashwi Yadav's stubbornness to stay in the Cabinet despite being named in an F.I.R. over the corruption charges.
