Patna: Samajwadi leader and Vijay Verma have indicated to form a new party(Sharad Yadav) to stay in the alliance of Sharad during the speculation about the “differences” between Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav. Vijay Verma, who was considered a trustee of Sharad Yadav and twice a member of the Bihar Legislative Council, has indicated to form a new party to stay in the general body of Sharad, but J.D. general secretary KC Tyagi has described it as a rumor. JDU’s State Spokesperson Ajay Alok dismissed the ‘displeasure’ of Sharad.
Verma said from Madhepura on the phone that Sharad is in touch with old colleagues and is considering political situation. He said that the formation of a new party is an option and it is being considered with a sense of interest. Verma claimed that Sharad has stressed that he will remain in the alliance with the secular power and keep this in mind, he met Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad and CPI (M) leader Sitaram Yechury. He said that Sharad has refused to join the NDA Government as a minister.
