Nitish had responded like this because Sharad Yadav has been openly criticizing Nitish for his decision to join the BJP.

Bengaluru: BJP chief Amit Shah on Saturday announced that he has extended an invitation to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to join the NDA.

Sharad said, "The decision to join hands with BJP and formation of government in Bihar was against Bihar's majority".

Sharad, who was removed from the post of party leader in the Rajya Sabha, on Saturday attacked the CM of Bihar saying that JDU was not the only party of Nitish Kumar.

"NDA will also be stronger with Kumar's party joining it", a BJP leader said.

Yadav is now leading a campaign against the party in Bihar against Nitish Kumar's move to from Government with BJP support after pulling out of the Grand Alliance with the RJD and Congress.

Nitish Kumar's close aide, RCP Singh, will be the JD (U)'s new leader in the Rajya Sabha, sources quoting the letter said.

"There is no question of leaving the party JD (U)". As far as party is concerned, it has already taken its decision. Srivastava had opposed Nitish's decision to align with the BJP.

Earlier on Thursday, Yadav had said that the split in the Grand Alliance had really hurt him. Till now, he used to sit in the front benches, sharing the space with other top leaders of other parties. "I am not afraid of anyone as I stand by my principles", he added.

Speculation swirled over his remarks that the party could suspend him.
