  • CM Nitish Kumar with his deputy Tejashwi Yadav when the grand alliance government was in office in Bihar

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.

Cricketer-turned-politician Tejashwi Yadav, 28, the younger son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, said Nitish Kumar's action of breaking the Grand Alliance and forming government with BJP is "not only an insult to the mandate of the 11 crore people of Bihar, but also an insult of Mahatma Gandhi's ideals".

Meanwhile, reports are coming that the faction unhappy with the Chief Minister's decision headed by Yadav - the second-most prominent face in the party - is deliberating over expelling their president Nitish Kumar.

Addressing the media, Sharad Yadav said that people, who established the mandate, were hurt because of the whole situation. Yadav said the grand alliance and the BJP had come out with different manifestos for the assembly election.

"I had also vigorously campaigned for the Grand Alliance".

Srivastava is a confidante of Yadav, who claimed later in the day that state chiefs of at least 14 of the party's total 22 units in the country are in their camp, against Kumar's decision.

Last month, Yadav had openly voiced his dissent following Kumar's decision to form government with support from the BJP.

Daulton had been ill since July 1, 2013, when he was diagnosed with glioblastoma - the same type of brain cancer that Arizona Sen. Former MLB player Darren Daulton , who has battled brain cancer four years, died Sunday.

Sharad Yadav hinting split in the party said there are two Janta Dal and he remained with the grand alliance, which was formed among the RJD, JD (U) and the Congress.

On the other hand, JD (U) spokesmen took a dig at him. "It was the people of Bihar which wanted to check the rise of communal and casteist forces", Yadav added. Sharad has a couple of times expresses his disappointment on Nitish's decision of breaking the grand alliance.

"I would just like to say that I still stand with the mandate and am going to meet a few friends from the Janata Dal", he added.

"A vote is trust, promises made to people are a trust and if that trust breaks democracy will ruin", said Yadav.

With JD (U) under Nitish distancing itself from Yadav's tour, former minister Ramai Ram and only a handful of partymen were seen with him. The JD (U) is clear that such an act will lay the basis of action against the former party chief but it will not oblige Yadav with the expulsion that he wants. "The JD-U has nothing to do with it", JD-U state President Vashisht Narain Singh said.

Sources close to Sharad Yadav hinted that he may also attend RJD's "BJP Hatao Desh Bachao" rally scheduled to be held on August 27.
