The rift in the JD(U) seems evident now. On Tuesday during the Rajya Sabha elections from Gujarat, JD(U) spokesperson said that the lone MLA had voted for the BJP. However the MLA himself did not make it clear and said he had voted for the nation. Sharad Yadav who has been sulking ever since Nitish Kumar dumped the RJD and allied with the BJP decided to congratulate Ahmed Patel. The Congress’ Ahmed Patel won after a late night drama on Tuesday thanks to the Election Commission of India invalidating two votes.
