On Friday, the party suspended Rajya Sabha member Ansari from its parliamentary board for attending an Opposition meeting called by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.

Asked whether his trip amounted to "anti-party activity", Yadav, who is the leader of the party in the Upper House, had said, "I do not want to make any comment".

"We are the real one as we are still with the principles of the JD-U, but they have changed and become BJD-U", he added, in a jibe at the Nitish faction which has sided with the BJP to form government in Bihar.

"R C P Singh has been elected leader of the party in the Rajya Sabha, replacing Sharadji", confirmed Bihar JD (U) chief and Rajya Sabha member Bashishta Narayan Singh. This is a historic moment for Bihar when the same alliance is at the helm of affairs in the state and at the Centre. "All of them are with Nitish Kumar", he said.

While Nitish confidants are sure that Yadav will avoid the August 19 meeting, his future course of action remains to be seen.Also, talks have been doing rounds that to bolster Nitish's stature in Bihar for future elections, he may be made the convenor or co-convenor of NDA, a position once enjoyed by George Fernandes and Sharad Yadav himself. The representatives of JD (U) comprised of JDU MP Harivansh, RCP Singh, Anil Sahni, Kaushalendra Kumar and JD (U) general secretary Sanjay Jha. The BJP is keen to rope in Nitish Kumar in an important role in the NDA. He had also said that he will stand by his choice and support the RJD joining hands with the Congress through the mahagathbandhan. "If he keeps a different opinion, then he is free to do so", Kumar said.
