Patel thanks Sharad Yadav for support

13 August 2017, 03:06 | Darnell Patrick

On Tuesday evening, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar sacked Arun Shrivastav, believed to be Yadav's confidante, from the post of the general secretary of the JD (U)'s Gujarat unit.

Yadav was referring to the Congress beating the BJP in one of the seats after the Election Commission rejected the votes of two dissident Congress legislators.

Senior Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav today congratulated Congress leader Ahmed Patel on winning the Rajya Sabha election in Gujarat, something that had turned into a prestige battle between the top leadership of the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party.

A day after high-voltage drama on the Rajya Sabha election day in Gujarat, the Congress on Wednesday appeared focussed on regrouping and re-analysing the work cut out for the next big test for the party: the state Assembly elections later this year.

The rift in the JD (U) seems evident now.

Shrivastava is believed to be close to senior party leader Sharad Yadav who has refused to accept Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's decision to ally with BJP in Bihar. Dafda said Kandhal Jadeja voted for BJP.

In reply, Patel said: "Thank you for your support Sharadji". "But Vaghela betrayed Ahmed Patel during polling", the source said.

Mr Vasava, who is known to be close to Ahmed Patel, said he chose to vote for the Congress candidate as "he is unhappy with the ruling party's works for the poor and tribal population" that he represents. Tyagi's statements were however countered by Ambalal Jadhav, the JD (U)'s general secretary in Gujarat. Six other Congress MLAs owing allegiance to Vaghela also cross-voted.

Mr Vasava said the decision to vote for Ahmed Patel "was my own" and pointed out that the party had issued no whip.

"I am also a party member but was not consulted before the decision was taken".
