The Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United) passed a resolution during its National Executive Meeting accepting the BJP's invitation to join the NDA coalition. The move comes weeks after JD(U) broke away from the grand alliance in Bihar comprising of the Lalu Prasad Yadav-led RJD and the Congress. The JD(U) could face a rift with former party chief Sharad Yadav, who is planning to hold a protest meeting.
