Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar is on a wafer-thin majority in Bihar “managed” by the Bharatiya Janata Party, mentioned senior Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Manoj Jha on Saturday including his authorities won’t last long.
He accused Nitish Kumar of suppressing the folks’s mandate with a decree by switching from the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ to the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in 2017 and mentioned that the folks of Bihar have woken up now.
“Even the NDA and the BJP must admit that if it had not been a mandate for change, Nitish Ji would not have won around 40 seats in the State Legislative Assembly. You (Nitish Kumar) are on a wafer-thin majority, that too, a managed one. A managed-majority government doesn’t last long,” Jha advised ANI right here.
He mentioned that the RJD has already approached the Election Commission of India concerning the low vote margins and warned Nitish Kumar of individuals coming to streets demanding accountability within the coming days.
Nitish Kumar had on Friday tendered his resignation to state Governor Phagu Chauhan.
“You (Nitish Kumar) suppressed the people’s mandate with a decree, but now the people of Bihar have woken up. They have seen the difference between a mandate and a decree. Now, people of Bihar will not spare you. People will now come to roads to ensure accountability,” Jha mentioned.
Commenting on Nitish Kumar’s comment on LJP, Jha mentioned he doesn’t have some other possibility. “Nitish doesn’t have an option. A person with 40 seats is looking to become the next Chief Minister. The BJP has the control and the script now,” he added.
Earlier, Nitish Kumar had left it as much as the BJP to determine on whether or not Chirag Paswan-led Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), which contested in opposition to the JDU within the Legislative Assembly polls, will stay within the NDA or not.
Jha mentioned Chirag Paswan had raised good questions concerning the angle of then Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Modi when labourers and day by day wagers have been coming again to their villages amid the COVID-19 lockdown.
This comes as the constituents of the NDA, which secured a majority within the just lately concluded Bihar Assembly Elections, are slated to fulfill on Sunday to pick its new chief. The BJP had received 74 seats, JD-U 43, whereas eight seats have been received by two different NDA constituents.
