Speaking to media after the meeting, Yadav said, "The NDA was divided into two factions over the subject of reservation and Constitution. Cases of atrocities on poor and Dalits were rising each day. Bihar was not given special status and Manjhi ji's policies were also not implemented in this budget."
He also said that Manjhi has been close with RJD chief Lalu Prasad and has previously worked with him, indicating that he will be joining Bihar's 'grand-alliance'.
