Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar disqualified from Rajya Sabha
Dec 05 2017 by Desiree Burns
Sharad tweeted,"I am disqualified from Rajya Sabha as Mahagathbandan which was formed to defeat NDA in Bihar & after 18 months to break it & joining NDA to remain in power & if to speak against this undemocratic style is my fault I will continue to fight to save democracy".
Vice President and Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu's decision to disqualify rebel JD (U) leaders Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar from the upper house "casts a shadow", CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said today. Yadav had joined hands with the opposition after JDU president and Bihar chief minister Nitish Kuamar dumped the Grand Alliance in Bihar and tied up with the BJP. Sharad also a few times alleged that Nitish had joined hands with BJP for personal gains and that his JD (U) was the party of the BJP whereas the real JD (U) as he claimed was the party of the people.
"Like Ceasar's wife, the Rajya Sabha Chairman's decisions must be above questioning".
In a brief response to news agency IANS, Sharad Yadav had confirmed that a 15-page notice on his disqualification was served to him at his Delhi residence "late on Monday night" and that he had hoped to go through the notice on Tuesday before sending his reply to the Rajya Sabha secretariat.

The Rajya Sabha chairman agreed to the JD (U)'s contention that the two seniour leaders had "voluntarily given up" their membership by defying their party's directives and attending events of opposition parties.
Yadav was elected to the House previous year and his term was scheduled to end in 2022. Both of them have thus ceased to be a Member of the Rajya Sabha with immediate effect.
Earlier in the day, Sharad Yadav left for Gujarat to campaign for the party in the assembly election there for his party candidates who are contesting on the symbol of Bharatiya Rashtriya Tribal Party on seven out of 182 seats.
