Sharad Yadav Death: Former national president of Janata Dal United (JDU) and old socialist leader of Bihar Sharad Yadav passed away on Thursday night. He was 75 years old. His daughter Subhashini Yadav informed about her father’s demise through a Facebook post. Sharad Yadav saw many ups and downs in his political career. His enmity with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar made a lot of headlines. After living for 22 years in the bungalow number 7, Tughlaq Road, Delhi, he had to vacate it.
In 2015, when Nitish Kumar along with RJD and Congress formed a Grand Alliance against BJP in Bihar, Sharad Yadav was considered its mastermind. Later, when Nitish Kumar again joined hands with BJP, Sharad Yadav was not happy with his decision. Later he separated himself from JDU and formed a separate party, which merged with Rashtriya Janata Dal.
The JDU leaders took a dig at the merger of Sharad Yadav’s party with the RJD. JDU leaders had then said, “This is the same Sharad Yadav, who had expressed happiness over Lalu Yadav’s punishment.” It was said that this decision is a lesson for the corrupt. Lalu Yadav is corrupt in his eyes, so why the merger of the party? It has to be seen what reward Tejashwi Yadav gives to those who call his father corrupt. Wow socialism!”
Let us tell you that on May 31, 2022, Sharad Yadav vacated 7 Tughlaq Road Wall Bungalow after spending 22 years as Union Minister and MP. After vacating the residence, he had said, “Time comes and goes. I have been in Lutyens’ Zone for 50 years. I have been at 7 Tughlaq Road for 22 years. Time keeps changing.” Despite making a promise, RJD did not send him to Rajya Sabha. Sharad Yadav’s pain was visible when asked about it. He had said that it is better to leave the story behind now, because Rajya Sabha tickets have been fixed everywhere.
He had said, “I have struggled all my life. I have resigned from Parliament three times on moral grounds. How many leaders have done this in their political career?” Sharad Yadav had said, “I have seen many ups and downs in life. I have seen not one but many elections. I have been in this Lutyens’ Delhi for 50 years, today is my last day in Lutyens’ Delhi. If times change, I will return here.” ”
Sharad Yadav was living in the 7 Tughlaq Road bungalow since 2000, when he became the civil aviation minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government at the Centre. Sharad Yadav had vacated the bungalow after the RJD refused to send him to the Rajya Sabha.
