He, however, launched a scathing attack on rebel party leader Sharad Yadav, saying that he should not forget that the in the Bihar Assembly election of 2015, the mandate was for Nitish Kumar's good governance.

Yadav remained unfazed, asserting that the JD (U) "belonged to him and not just to Kumar".

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to deliver on the Rs 1.25 lakh crore special package he had promised to the state. "I am confident that he will handle the situation and ensure neutralising Yadav's revolt in the party without causing anymore damage to it", he added.
