Rebel JD(U) leaders Sharad Yadav, Ali Anwar disqualified from Rajya Sabha

He wrote on his Twitter that it is a political vendetta; also, he urged to revoked the disqualification of Sharad Yadav.

In a haste rarely seen in decisions taken by the Rajya Sabha secretariat when it comes to demands for expulsion of members of Parliament's Upper House, Chairman Venkaiah Naidu, on Monday evening, disqualified rebel Janata Dal (United) MPs, Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar from the Rajya Sabha. "He did that to me when he approached me for an alliance after biting the dust in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and later, ditched us to join hands with the BJP", he told reporters here. Briefing upon the news, Ali Anwar said that he, along with Yadav, will appeal at all those places where there is possibility for them to get "justice".

In response to the Sharad Yadav disqualification, Lalu Yadav said disqualifying Jasharad Yadav and Ali Anwar from the Rajya Sabha membership have to decide by the people.

In the order given by the Rajya Sabha Chairman, Naidu said that Yadav and Anwar have voluntarily given up their membership of JD (U) and that they had been elected to the Rajya Sabha on the basis of their membership to the party.

Dowd and Trump's other lawyers, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow could not immediately be reached for comment on Stone's claims. Mueller III's investigation cease immediately, claim that his actions are "constitutionally authorized" and move on.

The two top JD (U) leaders parted ways recently after Kumar chose to align the party with the BJP in Bihar, against Yadav's wishes.

The JD (U) had sought the disqualification of the two MPs on the ground that they had attended a rally organised by the opposition parties, including the RJD, despite instructions to the contrary.

The Grand Alliance which consisted of the JD (U), RJD and Congress, had drubbed the NDA in the last Assembly polls in the state and formed its government. Venkaiah Naidu observed that the dispute pending before the election commission is not relevant in judging a disqualification petition.
