Sharad Yadav removed, RCP Singh named JD (U) leader in Rajya Sabha

Sharad Yadav removed, RCP Singh named JD (U) leader in Rajya Sabha

Announcing the party decision, Bihar JD (U) president Vashishtha Narayan said, "We met Vice President (Venkaiah Naidu) and gave in writing that we have elected RCP Singh as our leader in the Rajya Sabha".

The victory came as a major boost for the Congress party. The BJP turned an otherwise mundane Rajya Sabha election into a battle royale between Shah and Sonia, with the former banking on his skills that go beyond routine politics while the latter was busy fighting off an implosion within her party's ranks and was underprepared to pre-empt the moves of her rival.

Sharad Yadav said "Jab hum Indira Gandhi se nahi dare aur unke khilaf khade hue, kisi aur se kaisa darna", he said.

Patel had 43 Congress votes and one of the Janata Dal-United, adequate to touch 44. "This was against the party", JD (U) general secretary K.C. Tyagi told ANI. Earlier, he was believed to have one more vote of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), giving him the required strength of 45 in a House of 176. "But Vaghela betrayed Ahmed Patel during polling", the source said.

Pentagon denies civilians killed in Afghanistan airstrike
As the tempo of USA airstrikes continues at a rapid pace, there have been a number of such incidents in recent months. But United States Forces-Afghanistan said in a statement the air strike "killed a number of militants".

The replacement comes a day after Bihar Chief Minister and JD (U) chief Nitish Kumar virtually shut the door on any reconciliation with rebel leader Sharad Yadav, saying he is free to take any decision as the alliance with the BJP had the entire partys nod. Six other Congress MLAs owing allegiance to Vaghela also cross-voted.

BJP whip in the Assembly Pankaj Desai, meanwhile, said that all BJP MLAs, including doubtful Nalin Kotadiya who had claimed on social media on Tuesday that he voted for Ahmed Patel, had cast their vote in favour of BJP candidates. Had Patel lost, the morale of his party's workers in Gujarat, which goes for Assembly elections in five months, would have fallen further.
