Sharad Yadav’s close aide hints at formation of new party

PATNA: A close confidante of JD(U) veteran Sharad Yadav on Wednesday hinted that he could form a new party to remain with Bihar’s Mahagathbandhan.
However, principal general secretary of JD(U) K C Tyagi and another close confidant of Yadav, termed any such proposed move as “rumour”.
Differences have surfaced between Yadav and party president Nitish Kumar over joining hands with the BJP after dumping the coalition with the RJD and the Congress.
