Yadav who started his three-day Jan Samvad Yatra to meet the people of Bihar to discuss the effect of Kumar's withdrawal from the grand alliance accused him of breaking people's trust by forging an alliance with BJP.

"The path that Sharad Yadav has chosen leads to the RJD", said KC Tyagi today, pointing out that Mr Yadav has not once commented on the corruption charges against Lalu Yadav and his family that led Nitish Kumar to end their alliance.

"The two parties had contested assembly elections against each other on different manifesto but later formed a government".

On Thursday, Sharad told reporters that he would undertake a yatra (journey) across the state to speak to the voters.

Sharad Yadav arrived in Patna on Thursday and will remain in Bihar for the next three days. Yadav, who is in the state on a three-day tour, to hold "direct dialogue" with the people, expressed his unhappiness over Nitish joining hands with BJP to form a new government and dubbed it as "betrayal of the mandate".

In his first visit to Bihar after the Bihar grand alliance split, Yadav said that the disintegration of the alliance has violated the faith of 11 crore people of the state and that he is "hurt" by it. It will be interesting to see whether Sharad Yadav can go beyond the headlines in a Janata Dal (not United).

"Kumar's unilateral decision to walk out of the Mahagathbandhan (grand alliance) violates the mandate of the 2015 assembly elections".

JD-U leaders started targeting Yadav since last week after he spoke out against Nitish Kumar's decision to embrace the Bharatiya Janata Party. "I continue to stand for the "gathbandhan"," he said.

While a large number of RJD functionaries welcomed Sharad at Patna airport this morning, former state minister Ramai Ram was the only JD (U) functionary present there with a handful of party activists.

RJD MLA from Sonepur Ramanuj Prasad shared platform with Yadav at the function.

According to Sharad Yadav's loyalists, several party MLAs and MLCs are in touch with him.

Sharad Yadav wants to be expelled from the JD (U) because that will mean he does not lose his Rajya Sabha membership, which will happen if he resigns.

"Nitish Kumar has broken the trust of 11 crore people".

Another JD (U) spokesperson Neeraj Kumar alleged that Yadav's road-show was taking place at the behest of Lalu Yadav's "remote" and that Sharad Yadav had become a rebel.

"These things would be deliberated upon during JD (U) National Executive meeting at Patna on August 19", Tyagi said.
