A day after the Election Commission of India disposed off senior Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav's application staking claim over party symbol, the rebel party leader said it is a struggle and fight which he would win.

The rebel JD-U leader said that he would speak on this issue in a press conference on Wednesday.

"It is kind of a struggle and fight. We are ready to face this. I did not speak today because I am just listening to everyone right now. I will hold a press conference at 12 noon on Wednesday. I will put forward my future plan in the press conference," he said.

The Election Commission of India on Tuesday disposed off Sharad Yadav's application staking claim over party symbol, saying it was not supported with relevant documents.

Last month, Sharad Yadav had submitted a memorandum to the commission, staking claim over the party.

The JD-U, headed by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, also approached the ECI to file a counter plea against a petition submitted by Sharad Yadav.

The JD-U also submitted that Sharad Yadav had voluntarily left the party and had involved in anti-party activities.
