Nitish Kumar resigned as Bihar CM and formed a new government with the BJP. Kumar was sworn in as CM and BJP's Sushil Modi as deputy CM on July 27. Nitish won a trust vote in the Bihar assembly on July 29.
Earlier, it was said that Yadav was upset with Nitish Kumar's decision to pull out of Grand Alliance and join hands with the BJP. However, he did not give statements on the political developments.
He had been meeting many opposition leaders, as well as JD(U) leaders from states like Kerala, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. He was learnt to have conveyed to these leaders that he is "deeply pained" at Nitish's decision at a time when Opposition unity was needed the most.
