Gyanendra reportedly met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday and expressed his views in support of this decision.

Gyanendra and many other JD (U) leaders had last week lashed out at Nitish for joining hands with RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.

Union Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan had also come out strongly against Nitish.

“They called us opportunists, now they have joined hands for mere 2 seats. The ones who were abusing each other have now come together,” Paswan said.

"It is all a drama, Nitish Kumar has no option but to quit as there was internal rebellion in his party. Whether election happens in Bihar today, tomorrow or a year after, the NDA will form a government," he added.
    
The LJP chief, who was accorded a grand welcome by party workers in Delhi after his party won six of the seven seats it contested in alliance with the BJP, said that the alliance between the two parties will continue even in the Bihar assembly election, which as per schedule will take place by October 2015.
