"I invited JD (U) to join the NDA", Mr Shah said in a tweet. In a defiant tone, he questioned Nitish's authority for taking the "dictatorial" decision of removing Yadav from the position without holding any party meeting, and said it was time to take the battle to the masses.
Senior Janata Dal-United (JDU) leader Ram Chandra Prasad (R.C.P.) Singh would be the new parliamentary party chief.

BJP president Amit Shah has invited Bihar Chief Minister and JD (U) president Nitish Kumar to join the ruling NDA.
Nitish, however, swore-in as the Bihar Chief Minister the very next day with Sushil Modi as his Deputy Chief Minister.
Senior JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav, at odds with party president Nitish Kumar since the latter jettisoned the 20 month old grand alliance to form a new government with the BJP, late last month, hit back at Kumar, on Saturday. He has been told (by JD-U) that he is free now and he can leave the party.
"First, Nitish took the decision to go with the BJP without calling the national executive".
He further said that the members of Parliament, whether they belong to the Rajya Sabha or the Lok Sabha, showed their disappointment to the authorities regarding Sharad Yadav's three-day Jan Samvad Yatra, which started on August 10.
Earlier on Thursday, Yadav had said that the split in the Grand Alliance had really hurt him.
He added that this was not a personal fight against Nitish Kumar but a fight of principles and to save democracy and brotherhood. Till now, he used to sit in the front benches, sharing the space with other top leaders of other parties.
Speculation swirled over his remarks that the party could suspend him. JD (U) general secretary K C Tyagi said the party would pass a proposal at its August 19 meeting, and formally join the NDA at the national level.
