New Delhi:

Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Friday broke silence on series of Sharad Yadav’s rebellion statements by saying that he is free to make his own decisions.

“Party has taken a decision with everyone's consensus, he is free to make his own decisions,” Bihar CM Nitish told news agency ANI.

Nitish Kumar met Prime Minister Narendra Modi a day after senior JD(U) leader Sharad Kumar hinted split in in the party saying there are two Janta Dal and he still stands with the grand alliance in Bihar.

However, Nitish dubbed his meeting with PM Modi as a formal meeting and said he discussed developmental issues of Bihar.
