"Today Lalu Yadav will meet with Mulayam Singh Yadav ji and everything will be cleared. We will be successful in clearing this internal misunderstanding. Mulayam Singh is our leader, he cannot leave us," said Tyagi.

Tyagi said the whole situation was "unfortunate". "It would have been better if we could have been saved from this," he said.

Meanwhile, NCP, which was first to pull out of the 'grand alliance' in poll-bound Bihar, today supported the decision of the Samajwadi Party to storm out of it saying it (NCP) was making efforts to forge a third front of smaller parties in the state.

"They (SP) have taken a right decision," NCP General Secretary Tariq Anwar said here.
    
Anwar, who is Lok Sabha member from Katihar, said that with Mulayam Singh Yadav walking out of the alliance "the efforts to bring back splinter parties into Janata Parivar have virtually come to an end."
