Congress on Tuesday dared RJD to quit the grand alliance in Bihar. This came as a reaction to the continuous attacks on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar by RJD leaders.
Congress state President Ashok Choudhary said, “If there is a problem with or complaint against Nitish Kumar, then the RJD is free to exit the grand alliance-led-government.”
He added that RJD is a part of the government in Bihar and the alliance. Thus, it is unfair of RJD to criticize Nitish Kumar. “There is an attempt to tarnish the image of Nitish Kumar,” he said.
RJD Vice President and former Union Minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh and former MP Mohammad Shahabuddin called Nitish Kumar as “Chief Minister of circumstances”.
JD-U on Monday told Lalu Prasad to guide the senior leaders of his party and tell them to refrain from speaking against Nitish Kumar in public.
Congress is associated with the grand alliance of RJD and Janata Dal-United (JD-U) in Bihar.
