Union Home Minister and Senior BJP leader Amit Shah today said that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar betrayed the people of Bihar and the BJP to sit on Lalu Yadav’s lap. He was addressing Jan Bhavna Mahasabha in Purnea, Bihar.
Taking a dig at Nitish Kumar’s prime minister race in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, Amit Shah said that Nitish Kumar went to RJD to become the prime minister one day. He asked that if Nitish Kumar would become the prime minister by changing political alliances.
The former BJP president said that the BJP showed nobility because Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised him the CM post. But, when the Lok Sabha elections came around the corner, he betrayed them to become the next prime minister.
Amit Shah claimed that the people of Bihar were aware of the truth. The Seemanchal would give a befitting reply to him.
He said that he was not there to instigate unrest. Lalu Prasad Yadav was enough for that. With Nitish Ji sitting on Lalu Ji’s lap, he was there to tell the Seemanchal districts were a part of India. They should not have fear. They should not be worried under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reign.
The BJP leader claimed that the Bihar public would wipe out the Mahagathbandhan government. They will come into power in the 2015 assembly elections with a full majority.
The Union Home Minister also mentioned several central government projects in the state. He will also chair a meeting of the BJP State Core Committee in the evening.
Janata Dal (United) supremo Nitish Kumar was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Bihar for the eighth time on August 10 after breaking the alliance with BJP. He alleged that the Bihar BJP was ignoring the state government because the top leaders of the party from Delhi might have told them to do so.
