Amidst the ongoing political upheaval in Bihar, there is talk that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar may once again turn around and leave the Grand Alliance and join the NDA. However, now CM Nitish Kumar has termed it unnecessary. He said that no one is in touch with him but his party leader Upendra Kushwaha himself is in touch with the BJP. They are making unnecessary statements. Nitish also attacked the Narendra Modi government and said that the Center is not doing development in Bihar.
CM Nitish spoke openly on the current political scenario while addressing a program at AN College in Patna on Wednesday. Countering JDU leader Upendra Kushwaha’s statement, he claimed that party leaders are in touch with the BJP. CM Nitish, dismissing the speculation about leaving the grand alliance and going back to NDA, said that no one is in touch with him. Rather Upendra Kushwaha himself is in touch with the other party and wants to go with BJP. Let him go where he wants to do what he wants to do. Party doesn’t matter.
Along with this, the Chief Minister also attacked the Central Government. He said that the Center should develop the states only then the country would develop. Modi government should look at the state which is not developing. The state government is trying to do a lot for the development of Bihar but due to lack of funds the problem is happening. The central government has never interfered in the work of the state government before. We are working for the development of Bihar. It would have been better if the Center had helped.
CM Nitish said that the BJP government is working only for itself. Center is not helping poor states. Center is not helping poor states. It didn’t help even when he was with the BJP. Until Bihar does not get special status, Bihar will not develop. He said that even if the Center does not help, he will develop the state.
