The tour is meant to be a loud no from Yadav to Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar against the latter's decision to dump the Grand Alliance and re-join the BJP-led NDA. "Even during the elections, we stayed in Bihar, did their publicity and stood with the mandate", Yadav said. "Sharad Yadav has constantly been questioning Nitish Kumar's decision, but hasn't once commented on the investigation against Lalu Yadav's son Tejashwi", Tyagi said, warning, "If he crosses the line, it will be unfortunate".

In case there is a formal breakaway, both the factions will have to approach the Election Commission to claim the party name and the symbol (arrow), just like the two factions of Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh ahead of Assembly elections in the state.

On Thursday, Sharad told reporters that he would undertake a yatra (journey) across the state to speak to the voters. However, his senior party leader Sharad Yadav, who revolted against his party chief's decision to join NDA, will send close aide Ali Anwar Ansari to attend the meeting. Stopping at a few places to make brief speeches, Yadav made it clear that he was not happy with Kumar's decision, calling it a betrayal of mandate given by 11 crore people.

"The disintegration of Grand Alliance government in Bihar has broken the trust of 11 crore citizens of the state", Yadav said, pointing out the competing manifestoes that the Grand Alliance and the BJP-led NDAhad put during the 2015 polls.

None of the JD (U) legislators including those who were considered close to Sharad Yadav was present when he arrived at Patna airport on Thursday.

Google fires employee over diversity memo
The engineer had last week responded to Google's efforts to change its white male-dominated culture by posting the internal memo . One of the main issues taken from the memo was that it suggested there were fewer women at Google due to biological differences .

Bihar JD (U) chief spokesman Sanjay Singh and spokesman Neeraj Kumar questioned Yadav's wisdom in protecting "corruption" of RJD. In that scenario, Sharad will form his own party. Though many supporters turned up at the airport to greet Sharad Yadav, there was no prominent JD (U) leader or MLA.

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

Sharad Yadav wants to be expelled from the JD-U because that will mean he doesn't lose his Rajya Sabha membership, which will happen if he resigns. He said, "The JD-U has nothing to do with it".

He also said that the people who are associated with BJP have been roaming free despite being involved in a number of scams.

Insiders told this newspaper that JD (U) national president Nitish Kumar may take disciplinary action against Mr. Yadav during the national executive meeting scheduled to be held on August 19.
