Sharad Yadav embarks on 3 day public interaction programme

Sharad Yadav is now leading a faction of leaders in JD (U) who are upset with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's decision to leave the grand secular alliance and join hands with the BJP.

The stinging remarks come at a time when speculations of his split from the JD-U and even imminent sacking from the party are rife. Alok also lashed out at Srivastava, calling him a burden on the party who had only drained the party and had no stature to question Nitish Kumar. "Bihar voters are feeling betrayed and I am also hurt due to this decision", Yadav said.

In case there is a formal breakaway, both the factions will have to approach the Election Commission to claim the party name and the symbol (arrow), just like the two factions of Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh ahead of Assembly elections in the state.

Clouds could always spoil the view, so eclipse watchers need to be ready to split for somewhere with clear skies, if necessary. There are other interesting instances to see before, during, and as the eclipse ends, and they are called "contact times".
