Bihar CM Nitish hits out at BJP over cases against Lalu

Bihar Prime Minister Nitish Kumar said on Friday that he would not re-ally with the BJP as long as he lives, accusing the former ally of using investigative agencies to target political opponents such as RJD President Lalu Prasad take. At an event in this northern Bihar district, where he inaugurated a state engineering school, Kumar accused the current BJP leadership of arrogance and wistfully recalled the era of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Lal Krishna Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi.

“They filed a case against Lalu ji, which prompted me to cut ties with him. Nothing came of it. And now that we’re back together, they’re filing new cases. ‘ Kumar told the gathering, without naming the BJP. Prasad was named a few years ago on hotel fraud charges in an IRCTC country where his son Tejashwi Yadav, who was then serving his first term as Deputy CM, was also named as a defendant. This had unsettled Kumar, who values ​​his reputation for personal integrity, and prompted his return to the NDA.

The RJD President and his family members were recently indicted in another country over a job scam related to Prasad’s tenure as Minister of Railways in the UPA-1 government. “So different have the leaders of the same party been in the past, like former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, in whose cabinet I had the privilege to work, and LK Advani, who was Deputy Prime Minister at the time. I also have fond memories of Murli Manohar Joshi, who complied with my request to upgrade my alma mater, Bihar Engineering College, to the National Institute of Technology,” said Kumar.

“By contrast, those currently at the forefront of affairs listen to no one and have little respect for a person and their causes. I want to pledge that I will not return to them as long as I live,” said the JD(U) leader, who dumped the BJP two months ago amid allegations of attempts to split his party. Referring to the bipartisan Mahagathbandhan, which he has joined and is affiliated with the RJD, Congress and three left-wing parties, Kumar vowed: “We are all socialists by conviction. We will stay together and work for the progress of the nation.”

After cutting ties with the BJP, Bihar’s longest-serving prime minister has become a strong supporter of “opposition unity,” claiming that it would ensure the BJP’s defeat, which currently looks impressive.
