New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday hit out at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, saying the Janata Dal (United) has betrayed the BJP and made Nitish Kumar sit on Lalu’s lap.
Amit Shah, who is on a two-day visit to Bihar, said, ‘Nitish Kumar has betrayed us and has sat on Lalu Yadav’s lap. The people of Bihar will give a befitting reply to Nitish Kumar. Can he become such a prime minister?’
Addressing a rally in Purnia, Amit Shah said, “They (JDU and RJD) say that I have come here to start a fight. I have not come here to instigate a fight. Lalu Prasad Yadav is enough for this. We don’t need to worry under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rule.”
In a scathing attack on his former alliance partner, the senior BJP leader said that Nitish Kumar has gone with Lalu Yadav to become the Prime Minister. They have betrayed Bihar and its mandate. Union Minister Amit Shah reached Chunapur Air Force Station in Purnia at around 11 am on Friday, from where he reached Rangbhoomi Ground to address a huge public meeting rally.
After addressing the public sentiment rally, Amit Shah will leave for Kishanganj, where at 4 pm he will discuss the current political scenario in the state with all the MPs, MLAs, MLCs and office bearers of the organization.
