"I will contest from Patliputra," Yadav, who was a close confidant of Prasad and had resigned from all party posts on Saturday after denial of ticket from the seat, told reporters on arrival from Delhi.
The Rajya Sabha MP, however, did not elaborate whether he would enter the fray as a nominee of any political party or as an Independent candidate. Ramkripal said he would announce his decision in a day or two.
There is speculation that both the ruling JD (U) and BJP are in touch with Ramkripal, who had lashed out at RJD at the selection of Misa Bharti from Patliputra and had spurned her attempt at rapprochement.
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is reported to have talked to Yadav. JD (U) Bihar president Basistha Narayan Singh said that if Yadav, a popular leader known for his integrity and hard work, decided to join his party he was welcome.
There were also reports of Yadav being in touch with several BJP leaders.
