According to Sanjay Jaiswal, the head of the BJP’s state unit, BJP activists from all over Bihar have been officially informed that a realignment with the “unpopular” Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is not an option.
Following the party’s two-day state executive conference in the Darbhanga region of North Bihar, he made the claim.
“We have made an effort to put an end to rumours about such a realignment among our party’s cadre. Of course, the CM has a tendency to swing back and forth. But we’re not going to let him con us again “, claimed the head of the BJP, whose group lost power in Bihar as a result of Kumar and the JD(U) leaving their previous coalition with the saffron party to form a new one with the RJD and Congress.
“Nitish Kumar’s popularity has plummeted. His unpopularity was the reason his JD(U) scored poorly in the 2020 assembly elections, while we fared far better “Jaiswal stated.
“Kumar was granted a second term in office because to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s noble decision (udaarta) to uphold the election-related commitment. However, Kumar misused the trust that PM had placed in him since he is a habitual betrayer “said the head of the BJP in Bihar.
By utilising his former close ally RCP Singh, Kumar has disavowed the BJP and accused it of attempting to splinter the JD(U). The party has also charged the BJP with attempting to undermine the assembly elections when Chirag Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party fielded numerous saffron party dissidents in opposition to JD(U) candidates.
After winning the upcoming assembly elections, Jaiswal reaffirmed that the BJP now intended to create its own government in Bihar. He also asserted that the tone would be set in the Lok Sabha elections the following year, for which “we have set a target of more than 35 out of 40 seats in the state.”
Jaiswal added, rather ironically: “Today marks the anniversary of the birth of Nitish’s mentor George Fernandes. Nitish can dump anyone because he didn’t hesitate to betray him “.
