“The people of Bihar were waiting for this moment of farewell. They will retire him in this election,” said Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut.
As the final phase of voting is being conducted in Bihar, speculations have started doing rounds in the political spectrum. An election that earlier seemed to be one-sided, became a neck-to-neck contest on the ground if believed the political experts. Though the NDA members maintain that there is no way the Mahagathbandhan could dent their chances of regaining the power, the opposition has been insistent over the alliance winning the majority.
Amid the political commentary that continues over Bihar election, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has jumped into the debate making sarcastic remarks over the incumbent chief minister Nitish Kumar.
People of Bihar were waiting for this moment to bid adieu to the incumbent chief minister Nitish Kumar, Shive Sena MP Sanjay Raut was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Taking an indirect jibe at Nitish Kumar over his comments of contesting the “last election”, the Shiv Sena leader said: “Nitish ji is a very senior leader. He has played his inning. Now if some leader says that it is his last election, he should be given a farewell respectfully. The people of Bihar were waiting for this moment of farewell. They will retire him in this election.”
Mr Raut also talked about former J&K CM Farooq Abdullah’s comments regarding article 370. The National Conference chief had claimed that he would not rest until the special status to the state is reinstated.
“If Farooq Abdullah wants, he can go to Pakistan and implement Article 370 there. In India, there is no place for Article 370 and 35 A,” Mr Raut said, reported news agency ANI.
