Nitish rubbishes talks of Sharad Yadav’s ‘retirement’
A day after replacing Sharad Yadav as JD(U) president, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday rubbished talks of Yadav’s ‘retirement’ saying he will continue to guide the party.
The new JD(U) chief was replying to a question regarding the remarks made by RJD chief Lalu Prasad earlier in the day where he described Sharad Yadav’s replacement as the JD(U) national president by Nitish Kumar as Yadav’s “retirement”. “Its not true. Lalu Prasad did not mean this. He and Sharad Yadav have old and good ties, why will the RJD chief make such a statement? It’s misunderstood,” Kumar said on Lalu’s comments in Gopalganj.
