Sharad Yadav Ousted from Rajya Sabha

Dispose disqualification plea of members in about 3 mths RS chairman

The decision was the culmination of a plea submitted to Naidu by JD-U chief Nitish Kumar urging action against Yadav and Anwar saying they had defied party line.

Vice-President M. Venkaiah Naidu has, in his order disqualifying senior Janata Dal (U) MPs Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar from the Rajya Sabha, said that issues of disqualification of MPs should be decided by the presiding officers within a period of three months.

He also questioned the urgency shown by the chairman.

JD (U) secretary general K C Tyagi and national general secretary Sanjay Jha are among the frontrunners to be considered by the party for nomination to the Rajya Sabha in place of Sharad Yadav. The petition was filed on September 2 and the decision is out on December 4. Similar cases are pending in Lok Sabha for over a year.

Speaking to news agency IANS, Yadav also confirmed that a notice was served to him last night.

The JDU members had in August chose to strike off Yadav's name from the MPs list in Rajya Sabha, after Yadav was noted for criticising the party and its cadres, the Times of India reported.

On Tuesday, Yadav and several other Opposition leaders slammed Naidu's decision to disqualify the two veteran parliamentarians without even giving them a chance to reply to a notice that over the imminent decision that was reportedly served to them from the Rajya Sabha secretariat only hours before the remainder of their Upper House tenures were terminated.

The order says that Yadav's public denouncement of Kumar's decision to withdraw from the Mahagathbandhan and align with the BJP and publicly aligning with the rival party of JD (U), namely, RJD, by supporting their leaders and policies, sharing of dias and addressing their meetings/rally, testify to the fact that he no longer supports the policies and decisions of the party, on whose ticket he was elected.

So far, no official statement from Yadav who is said to be considering floating a new party of his own.
