On Wednesday, Arvind Kejriwal stated the disqualification of Sharad Yadav as illegal and unconstitutional. He wrote on his Twitter that it is a political vendetta; also, he urged to revoked the disqualification of Sharad Yadav. On Monday Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu disqualified Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar from the Rajya Sabha while seeking the observation on the petition filed by the JD(U) leader Ram Chandra Prasad Singh. Venkaiah Naidu observed that the dispute pending before the election commission is not relevant in judging a disqualification petition. The disqualification from Rajya Sabha is another setback of former Janta Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav.
Following the complaints from the party Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu who is also the ex-officio chairperson of the Upper House Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar disqualified from the Rajya Sabha. The first setback for Sharad Yadav has emerged in 2014 when he lost the Lok Sabha elections. And his real problem began when the Bihar CM Nitish Kumar replaced Sharad Yadav as the party member from Rajya Sabha.
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. He said the person who helped Samata Party since a long time has removed from the party because of jealousy. While Sharad Yadav took to his Twitter that he was disqualified from Rajya Sabha as Mahagathbandan that was formed to defeat NDA in Bihar & after 18 months to break it. He said joining NDA to be in power and to speak against this undemocratic style is my fault. He promises to continue his fight to save democracy.
Disqualification of Sharad Yadav ji is completely illegal and unconstitutional. It is political vendetta. We strongly condemn it and demand that disqualification be revoked
