Mumbai: TMC MP Shatrughan Sinha, an actor-turned-politician, today said that the second Grand Alliance between Nitish Kumar and Tejashwi Yadav is a message to the BJP to remain “khamosh.” The BJP has no basis for complaint, according to Mr. Sinha, because Nitish Kumar has only copied what the BJP has done in other states, including Madhya Pradesh, and Maharashtra.

When asked how the public felt about the recent events in light of the BJP’s allegation that Kumar had violated their mandate, “By and large the people are very happy”, Sinha said.

Mr. Sinha responded that the BJP is explicitly sending the message that there will be no resistance.

“In fact, the BJP has been doing it for years. ‘As you sow, so shall you reap’. They have done it in Madhya Pradesh, Goa, Maharashtra through their money power. Now they got a taste of their own medicine. Nitish Kumar paid them back in their own coin”, he told NDTV.

“The BJP is saying, ‘Only we will be there’. But how can only you be there? This is a democracy. There is the opposition, there areĀ  the regional parties,” Mr Sinha pointed out. He pointed to the newly formed Grand Alliance, which consists of seven parties and one Independent, and said that this is why the opposition is banding together.

The alliance was broken up after JP Nadda, the head of the BJP, said that “Only the BJP would stay, regional parties will perish.” Mr. Kumar’s Janata Dal United has quoted this statement before. According to sources, it simply served to reaffirm Mr. Kumar’s fear that the BJP was seeking to divide the JDU and install a pliant Chief Minister, as they did in Maharashtra.

Mr. Kumar claimed that the party in power at the Centre has not made any promises to him, which is another argument in favour of his choice to break the coalition with the BJP. He has not been granted the special package worth 1,76000 crore, nor has Bihar been given any preferential treatment. Nitish Kumar received no help from the Center, he claimed.
