He also said that he is personally hurt by the move.

In a tweet Saturday morning, Shah spoke about their meeting on Friday and that he invited Nitish to join BJP's national coalition.

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

BJP president Amit Shah has invited Bihar Chief Minister and JD (U) president Nitish Kumar to join the ruling NDA.

Sources said R.C.P. Singh is likely to be inducted in the Union Council of Ministers from the JDU quota in the changed political equations when the JDU becomes part of the NDA.

Ansari along with Yadav expressed differences with party President Nitish Kumar's decision to snap ties with the Grand Alliance of Congress and RJD and form a government in Bihar with the Bharatiya Janata Party.

This has come in after reports, a few days ago that Nitish Kumar will join BJP and leave the Grand Alliance-mahagathbandhan. He has been told (by JD-U) that he is free now and he can leave the party.

He refused to comment on the JD-U decision to replace him as the parliamentary party leader. Srivastava had opposed Nitish's decision to align with the BJP. "I am not afraid of anyone as I stand by my principles", he added.

Meanwhile, Yadav said that he had sent party leader Ali Anwar, who has been suspended from the membership of the parliamentary party, to the meeting of Opposition parties on Saturday. The leaders standing with Nitish are threatening the other leaders who support me.

Speculation swirled over his remarks that the party could suspend him. Sharad Yadav has called a conclave on "sanjhi virasat bachao" (save composite culture) at Constitution Club in the capital.

JD (U) spokesman KC Tyagi said the party's founder president would be provided an opportunity to present his point of view at a meeting of the national executive scheduled in Patna on August 19. We will go to the people.
