New Delhi: Senior Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav on Monday broke his silence on the end of "Grand Alliance" in Bihar, saying it was very "unpleasant" and "unfortunate".

He said he did not agree with the decision taken by Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar.

"I don't agree with the decision in Bihar. It is unfortunate," Yadav told reporters outside Parliament.

"The mandate of the people (in Bihar in 2015) was not for this," the Rajya Sabha member said on Nitish Kumar's decision to part ways with the Grand Alliance of the RJD and the Congress in the state.

In a surprise move last week, Kumar left the "Grand Alliance" with Lalu Prasad Yadav's RJD and the Congress. After the unexpected break-up, Kumar aligned again with the Bharatiya Janata Party and formed a coalition government on July 27.

The decision had apparently upset Sharad Yadav, a former president of the JD(U) who reportedly complained to party colleagues that Kumar did not consult him before deciding to embrace the BJP.
