When asked about this, the ex-CM said Nitish's decision was nothing to do with him. "But this is not going to happen", JD (U) leader Sunil Kumar Singh said.

Senior JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav once again pitches for Grand alliance on Friday, saying that it was formed with people's trust and should definitely be restored.

JD (U) MPs Ali Anwar and M P Veerendra Kumar, who opposed the decision to go with the BJP, had met Yadav over the issue.

The Chief Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh said the state government is in process of identifying non-performing institutions and all those responsible for the poor show will be given compulsory retirement.

"Sharad Yadav has always fought against BJP and RSS. He is coming to Patna on August 8 and I will discuss with him the next course of action to form a formidable anti-BJP front in the country", Lalu had said in Ranchi on Thursday.

Gopalkrishna Gandhi did not comment about Nitish Kumar's decision of entering into an alliance with BJP.

JD (U) leader Rajiv Ranjan held Lalu exclusively responsible for Nitish Kumar walking out of the alliance. Meanwhile, Vijay Verma, a trusted aide of Yadav, said in Bihar's Madhepura that the senior JD (U) leader was in touch with "old friends" and pondering over the political situation that has emerged after the split.

Last week, JD (U) chief Nitish while announcing his resignation as the CM of the state chose to leave the Grand Alliance.

The veteran leader is upset about party president and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's decision on July 26 to ally with the Bharatiya Janata Party after breaking its with the Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Congress.
