Senior Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav hasn't said a word on the splitting of the Grand Alliance and Nitish Kumar joining hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party. 

However, reports state that the senior JD-U leader isn't happy about the recent developments and has chosen to maintain a stony silence. 

Lalu Yadav, the former alliance partner of Nitish, on Saturday said that Sharad Yadav was, in fact, on his side, and did not approve of the ways things have progressed. 

"Sharad Yadav called me," said Lalu, adding, "He has been in touch with us and told us he is with us."

The statement comes after RJD and the Congress failed to garner the majority votes in the trust vote where Nitish sailed through.
