Patna: Janata Dal-United president Sharad Yadav will join RJD chief Lalu Prasad's fast on July 26 here to protest against the non-release of the caste-based census data by the central government.

"Sharad Yadav will join my fast," Lalu Prasad told the media here on Friday. The former chief minister added that he had called a "Bihar bandh" on July 27 on the same issue.
