The JD(U)'s Sharad Yadav has said he does not agree Nitish Kumar's decision to leave the mahagatbandhan -- the JD(U)-RJD-Congress alliance that was ruling the state -- and join hands with the BJP.
"I don't agree with the decision in Bihar. It's unfortunate," he said.
"The mandate by the people was not for this," he added.
Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar had unexpectedly "resigned" as chief minister last week, only to be sworn in again as chief minister the following morning; this time with support from the BJP.

Yadav earlier hit out at the Centre on Sunday saying that neither had the government been able to get back black money from abroad -- one of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's poll promises -- nor had anyone named in the Panama Papers been caught.
"Neither black money slashed abroad returned, one of d main slogans of d ruling party nor anyone caught out of those named in Panama papers," he tweeted on Sunday.

The BJP responded to Yadav, with party leader Ashwani Choubey telling ANI, "We admire Sharad Yadav and he has worked with the NDA Government as well. As a fellow politico, I will suggest Yadav to not lose hopes in Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he will bring back the black money from abroad as well as clear the corruption from the entire nation," BJP leader .
"Now Bihar will flourish under the guidance of our Prime Minister," he added, saying the BJP had taken an oath to make Bihar corruption-free.
"Sharad Yadav should think for a while before blaming the Prime Minister. Promises made by Prime Minister Modi will get fulfilled," he said.
