The Janata Dal (United) on Saturday removed party leader Sharad Yadav as chief of its parliamentary party.

The decision was taken a day after the party suspended its rebel MP Ali Anwar Ansari from the parliamentary party, for taking part in a meeting of opposition parties convened by Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Friday.

The name of JD(U)'s Rajya Sabha member Ram Chandra Prasad Singh is doing the rounds as the new leader of the parliamentary party.

According to JD(U) sources, the decision to remove Sharad Yadav from the party post has been communicated to the Rajya Sabha chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu.

Ansari along with Yadav have expressed differences with party chief Nitish Kumar's decision to snap ties with Congress and RJD and form a government in alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party.
