‘Those accusing Nitish of opportunism should question RJD’

first_imgAs Janata Dal (U) president Nitish Kumar is all set to take oath as Bihar Chief Minister with the help of the BJP, barely 14 hours after quitting from the post, JD(U)’s state unit president Bashishtha Narayan Singh dismissed all allegations of opportunism against him.”Nitish Kumar took this decision in consonance with the kind of politics he has always done which is good governance and zero tolerance for corruption. The first duty of any political leader is to ensue that governance is a priority,” he said.”Those accusing Nitish Kumar of opportunism should instead question RJD that prioritised family ties over continuing this alliance. After all, Nitish Kumar wanted Tejaswi Yadav to quit, not break the alliance. It was RJD that made it a deal breaker,” he said.He added that party MP Ali Anwar, who has declared that he does not want to stay in the JD(U) following the split in the Mahagathbandhan was ‘free to act according to his will.’”Everyone is free to act according to their own will but I must say that the first time Ali Anwarji became Rajya Sabha MP was when JD (U) was in the NDA,” he added.last_img
