PATNA: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of conspiring against the Janata Dal United in 2020 assembly elections.
He said that in the 2020 assembly polls, the Janata Dal was working against the United despite being an ally in the BJP alliance.
According to the report of the news report, Nitish Kumar said that if the parties opposing BJP join hands in the year 2024 elections, they can win the elections with a big majority.
In a program of Janata Dal United, Nitish Kumar alleged that the reason for his party’s poor performance in the last election was the alliance partner BJP.
Addressing the plenary session of his Janata Dal (United) in Patna, Kumar alleged that his party’s unsatisfactory performance in the last assembly elections was because of the then alliance partner BJP.
Without naming the BJP, he said, “They (BJP) should be reminded that our party had never won so few seats before, whether it was the 2005 assembly elections or the 2010 elections. In the year 2020 We suffered because they tried to defeat our candidates.”
Nitish Kumar, who held the post of Chief Minister for the longest time in Bihar, said that he was hesitant to seek another term but on the insistence of the BJP, he agreed to it.
“But Bihar was getting nothing (from the ruling BJP government at the Centre). The demand for special category status was not accepted. He (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) belongs to a state which was part of the British rule,” he said. It is only a prosperous state. The progress of the country cannot happen without the development of the poor states.”
