But what is more interesting is the photo of the rally shared by the RJD chief Lalu Yadav.

Mr Yadav's attending the event is being seen as his defiance to the JD (U) which may initiate a stern action against him.

"Yadav was informed that if he attends the rally, it would be considered anti party activity", Tyagi added, further remarking that Sharad has given up party membership himself.

Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi who was not at the rally issued a statement in which he accused BJP of using money and muscle to form a government even in those states where it had not got a mandate to rule.

"Mahagathbandhan was given a five-year mandate by the people of Bihar based on its policies, principles and the cumulative leadership that we presented".

Lalu Yadav welcomed Sharad Yadav by embracing him and calling his "faction" the real JD (U).

The process of expelling JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav, who has adopted a rebelling attitude against Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, has begun.

The rebel JD (U) leader said that the country is in danger and the struggle will continue.

Meanwhile, The BJP on Sunday made a scathing attack on the RJD for working overtime for the Aug 27 rally instead of serving the flood-hit people of Bihar.

In his tweet, Lalu's son Tejashwi claimed that the rally was attended by 30 lakh people.

"I was not ready to declare Nitish Kumar the chief ministerial candidate due to his track record of betraying... it was the then Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav who persuaded me to agree to his name for the post". "Gujarat Congress leadership wanted to start campaign on September 1, proposed a big rally, (and) our opposition leader Rahul Gandhi left for Norway", he said. "Earlier it was rally of RJD but now it has become a rally of Mahagatbandhan (grand alliance) to save the country".
