Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar once again made a statement on Monday which is almost similar to the one he had said in the state assembly in February 2014. “Mitthi mein mil jaayenge, lekin BJP ke saath nahi jaayenge” (I will immerse myself in the soil, rather than aligning with BJP).
Nitish had to make a similar statement again in Hindi saying “mar jana qabool hai. Unke saath jaana qabool nahi hai” (will prefer to die than go with them) while speaking to media persons in the state capital on Monday.
Nitish made this statement while replying to a question from reporters about a decision taken at the BJP’s state executive meeting not to realign with NItish again at any cost. The state BJP meeting concluded at Darbhanga on Sunday.
Nitish is often called a “habitual betrayer” by the BJP. “Who will trust him now? Nobody will believe him. He has lost all his credibility,” said BJP leaders.
Nitish further said without naming Bihar’s BJP Rajya Sabha MP and former deputy CM Sushil K Modi said that a “senior BJP leader hoping to get some important position at the centre criticise me on regular basis. I wish him all the best”.
“I was not at all inclined to become CM again after 2020 assembly poll. But they practically forced me to become the CM,” he said, and added that he was the follower of the tradition of former PM Vajpayeeji.
When asked about the possibility of a grand alliance for Lok Sabha poll due next year, he vehemently asked to just wait and see the result in 2024. I don’t have any confusion. Because of my good work for every section of society, the BJP had also got votes from the minorities earlier.”
Deputy CM Tejshwai Prasad Yadav was behind him when CM Nitish said that his father was implicated in “false” cases, but nothing has come out. Now again, they are trying to frame these people (read Tejashwi) again to harass them.
Nitish reiterated that he was not a claimant for any post. “I have no personal ambition for any post. In fact, BJP is anxious to see our strength of grand alliance in Bihar which has a major concern for them in coming polls.”
The CM mocked at the tall claims of the BJP that it would win 36 out of total 40 seats in Lok Sabha.
In the meantime, some unknown miscreants attacked the JDU parliamentary committee chairman Upendra Kushwaha at Nayaka tola in Jagdishpur block in Bhojpur district on Monday evening.
Kushwaha, along with his supporters, was coming from Buxar after attending a funeral ceremony to Patna some lathi wielding miscreants attacked on them. Due to the prompt action by his armed security personnel they managed to escape. Kushwaha, in his tweet, has tagged the CM and Bihar police for necessary action. Some people sustained injury also.
