The Janata Dal (United) on Sunday reiterated that party leader Sharad Yadav will face action if he attends Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav’s rally. JD(U) leader Ajay Alok said, “Our general secretary (K.C. Tyagi) has clearly stated that if he (Sharad Yadav) attends Lalu’s rally, then he should be ready to face serious consequences.” JD (U) leader KC Tyagi had said that the party has not acted against Yadav for his “anti-party activities” because of his seniority and long association with the party. “If he attends RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s rally here on August 27, he will cross the Lakshman Rekha,” he said, and hinted at action against him.
However, the Congress earlier in the day said politicos who are thinking of taking action against Yadav should introspect. Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said that Yadav stood by his beliefs and principles where Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar got buoyed by power. “Sharad Yadav was one of the founding members of JD(U). Sharad Yadav has let go power and is standing by his beliefs and principles. Those who are attacking Sharad Yadav should introspect,” said Surjewala.(ANI)
