"If he has any issue with the decision or is unhappy with it, he is free to express his opinion", he said while replying to a query on Sharad Yadav's recent statements against the JD-U-BJP rule in Bihar.

Confirming the big political development, Bihar JD ( U) president Vashishtha Narayan on Saturday said that the JD (U) leaders met Vice President of India Venkaiah Naidu and gave him in writing that Singh will represent the party in the Upper House.

Yadav's greetings to Patel assumes significance because the JD (U) had asked its lone MLA in Gujarat, Chhotu Vasava, to vote in favour of BJP's Balwantsinh Rajput.

The battle of nerves for the Rajya Sabha elections in Gujarat that ended at 2.30 a.m. on Wednesday with a hard-earned victory for the beleaguered Congress veteran Ahmed Patel was a fight for just one vote which accrued to him by disqualification of two votes of Congress rebels. The representatives of JD (U) comprised of JDU MP Harivansh, RCP Singh, Anil Sahni, Kaushalendra Kumar and JD (U) general secretary Sanjay Jha.

Yadav's tweet also comes at a time when the party has forged ties with the BJP in Bihar to form government, something that apparently did not go down well with him. By walking out of the grand alliance with the RJD and the Congress, and joining hands with the BJP, Nitish Kumar has acted against the wish of the people, Sharad Yadav said.

The Janata Dal (United) has chose to remove rebel Rajya Sabha MP Sharad Yadav as the leader in the House.

On Thursday, Sharad Yadav had said that he was still with RJD, Congress-led Mahagathbandhan. Further, the JD (U) recently allied with the BJP after party chief Nitish Kumar quit the "grand alliance" coalition in Bihar.

"Nitish Kumar does not belong to (JD (U)) anymore, it is Sharad Yadav's now".
