The Bhartiya Janata Party on Sunday hoped that Bihar chief minister and JD (U) president Nitish Kumar will manage the internal crisis of his party as senior party leader Sharad Yadav in no mood to join hands with BJP and wants restoration of Grand Alliance.

"(We are taking) Necessary step because being leader if a person indulges in anti-party activities it has to be condemned unanimously", Singh added.

Summary: Amid signs of an "imminent and conclusive" action against Sharad Yadav for "crossing the party line", his supporters are mulling a plan to present their group before the Election Commission as the "real" JD (U), claiming support of 14 state units. Now, that Sharad has been removed the party's leader post in Rajya Sabha, he will have to sit in the back benches.

Ali Anwar got elected for Rajya Sabha twice with the BJP's help, he said.

Thornton's lawyer said she could not answer whether any changes were made at the facility after the violations were flagged. The Florida Department of Children and Families are also conducting their own separate investigation into the incident.

The meeting was held few hours before the beginning of the last proceedings of the monsoon session this year. A former Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer from the UP cadre, he has been Principal Secretary in the Nitish Kumar government. Hopeful of success, at least to the extent of causing a split, Arun Shrivastava said, "We are not leaving the party". For forming a party, there has to be some buniyad (foundation). Leading the charge has been his younger son Tejashwi Yadav, who was Deputy Chief Minister in the previous version of the Nitish Kumar government.

"Party has taken a decision with everyone's consensus, he is free to make his own decisions", he has added. In a tweet on Saturday morning, Shah spoke about their meeting on Friday and that he had invited Nitish to join the BJP's coalition.

The development comes a day after the Bihar Chief Minister had a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shah in the national capital on Friday.

However, Vashishtha Narayan of the JD (U) clarified that Yadav was not removed from the party but only replaced by RCP Singh.
