"I wonder what has prompted the RJD supremo to stand with Kumar despite being convicted for five years of imprisonment in the fodder scam which was pursued by the Chief Minister's men in the courts," Yadav said during an election meeting at Bhabhua town in Kaimur district.

"Prasad suffered irreparable loss politically due to conviction in the fodder scam, but amazingly he chose to stand by Kumar... I wonder what could be the reason behind that," the SP supremo said.

Describing Kumar to be a 'fraud', Yadav said the JD(U) leader ended up cheating despite initially making moves to bring the disparate Janata Parivar constituents under one banner, in an apparent reference to meager five seats offered by the secular alliance to his party for the Bihar assembly polls which led to the party's exit.
