On asked about the announcement of JD (U) Bihar unit chief Basistha Narain Singh's statement in Patna that Yadav had been removed from the post of party leader in the Rajay Sabha, Tyagi said he would not contradict Singh, but would not say anything on Yadav's status in the Upper House unless authorised by the party president.

Differences between Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Yadav surfaced after the former parted ways with Lalu Prasad-led Rashtriya Janata Dal and formed a new government with the support of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Bihar last month.

The senior party leader has raised questions over the alliance saying that this decision has broken the trust of those who voted for JD (U).

BJP said Sharad Yadav'sdissensionn is also not clear, the party said.

Nitish Kumar is the Janata Dal-United national president and said to fully control the party in Bihar.

Yadav remained unfazed, asserting that the JD (U) "belonged to him and not just to Kumar".

"I met JD (U) president Nitish Kumar at my residence yesterday".

Sharad Yadav said "Jab hum Indira Gandhi se nahi dare aur unke khilaf khade hue, kisi aur se kaisa darna", he said.

Congress high command Sonia Gandhi had invited nearly all the opposition parties to unite as one entity against the BJP-led government on Friday, ahead of the last day of the monsoon session.

According to sources, RCP Singh will also head the party's parliamentary party.

Kumar had earlier suspended another JD (U) Rajya Sabha MP, Ali Anwar, who had attended a meeting of Opposition parties convened by Sonia Gandhi on instructions from Sharad Yadav.

The JD (U) is likely to get some berths in the Union cabinet when the next round of reshuffle in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's council happens. "Kumar's decision to align with the BJP is unacceptable", Ansari said. "I continue to stand for the 'gathbandhan'", he had said. "We will fight till the end and go to the masses", said Ansari.
