Nitish betrayed Bihar to sit on Lalu’s lap, can he become PM like this, asks Amit Shah


Nitish betrayed Bihar to sit on Lalu’s lap, can he become PM like this, asks Amit Shah
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday launched a scathing attack on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, claiming the Janata Dal (United) chief betrayed the BJP to “sit on Lalu Prasad Yadav’s lap,” aiming to become the prime minister in 2024.

Amit Shah, who is on a two-day visit to Bihar, said, “Nitish Kumar betrayed us to sit on Lalu Prasad Yadav’s lap. Seemanchal will give a befitting reply to Nitish Kumar. Can Nitish Kumar become the prime minister by changing political alliances?

“The BJP showed nobility because Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised you the CM post. But, when the Lok Sabha elections came around the corner, you betrayed us to become the next prime minister. The people of Bihar know you. They gave you the benefit of the doubt, but now they know you,” he added.

Addressing a rally in Purnea, the senior BJP leader further said, “They [JD(U)-RJD] say I came here to instill unrest. I am not here to instigate unrest. Lalu Prasad Yadav is enough for that. With Nitish Ji sitting on Lalu Ji’s lap, I’m here to tell you border districts are a part of India. Fear not. We need not worry under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reign.”

This was Home Minister Amit Shah’s first since his party last month lost power after chief minister and JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar broke ranks with the BJP to ally with the RJD.

“Nitish Kumar went with Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD to become the prime minister one day. They betrayed Bihar and its mandate,” Amit Shah said.

The Union Minister landed at the Chunapur Air Force Station in Purnia at around 11 am on Friday, from where he went to the Rangbhoomi Ground to address the mega ‘Jansabha Rally’.

After addressing the Jan Bhawna rally, Amit Shah is set to leave for Kishanganj, where at 4 pm he will hold discussions with all MPs, MLAs, MLCs, and organisational office-bearers on the current political scenario in the state.
