Patna: 

Highlights

  1. Sharad Yadav tweeted today on government's measures against black money
  2. Earlier, he had pointed fingers at the government on various issues
  3. JD(U) chief is allegedly upset about Nitish Kumar's tie-up with the BJP
Silent on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's swapping of allies, his party leader Sharad Yadav continued his sporadic attack on the Narendra Modi government at the Centre. He posted one more tweet this morning - hours after Nitish Kumar's estranged ally Lalu Yadav invited him to lead the battle against the BJP.

Today, the 70-year-old, who had been a Union Minister in the NDA government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee, spoke of the government's measures against black money stashed abroad.
 
The tweet is a continuation from several posted Saturday and Friday, in which the senior JD(U) leader pointed fingers at the use of government funds, and a scheme he called "unsuccessful".
   
Earlier, Sharad Yadav had tweeted about "slow" growth of economy, "shortcomings" of the rural health mission and unemployment.

The JD(U) chief is reported to be upset about Nitish Kumar's move to dump Lalu Yadav and the Congress - the allies of the mahagathbandhan or Grand Alliance formed to block the BJP in the 2015 assembly elections.

On Wednesday, Nitish Kumar had resigned as Chief Minister, citing Lalu's son and his Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav's refusal to step down despite facing a corruption case. But in a span of 14 hours, he was back at the head of a new government, formed in alliance with the BJP.

Comments
Critics have suggested that Sharad Yadav was angling for a cabinet berth in the Modi government and his silence on Nitish Kumar is merely a negotiating tactic. But Lalu Yadav had brushed it off as "propaganda" and insisted that the 70-year-old "champion of social justice" was "angry" at Nitish Kumar's decision to ally with the BJP.

Yesterday, the RJD chief had even dialled Sharad Yadav with the offer to lead an anti-BJP front and then repeated the invite in front of television cameras. "I appeal to Sharad Yadav-ji who has been our leader... whom we consider our leader, to come forward and fight the BJP. Take the lead role in this," Lalu Yadav said on Saturday.
