Nitish Kumar’s party JDU said the BJP called leaders of its new ally RJD and asked them to wait “three-four days” before sealing the new alliance.
Mumbai: There is no ghosting in this breakup, despite the fact that JDU’s Nitish Kumar parted from the BJP in a hurry. His party, the Janata Dal-United or the JDU, and the BJP, which were expelled on Tuesday, traded lengthy accusations today over how their alliance came to an end.
“How the BJP treats people is before you,” Nitish Kumar remarked.
Union Minister Giriraj Singh of the BJP claimed that Nitish Kumar had compromised the coalition’s principles.
That is a ludicrous assertion, according to Nitish Kumar’s party, and the BJP tried to coerce other parties into not joining him out of a desperate attempt to stop him from creating a new alliance. “Yesterday, they were trying to call RJD leaders, saying you can go but after three-four days. But they no longer have an agent anymore. They only had one agent and Nitish had him removed,” said Nitish Kumar’s party president Rajiv Ranjan “Lalan” Singh.
Today, the BJP sought to prove that it tried to make good relations with JDU’s Nitish Kumar once it became apparent that he was upset.
“Only two days back, Amit Shah made a telephone call to Nitish Kumar, he said ‘there’s nothing to worry about’,” said senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi.
Team Nitish has used BJP President JP Nadda’s statement from approximately a week ago that “Other parties would be wiped out, the BJP alone will survive” as proof that the Prime Minister’s party.
