BJP leader Vijay Kumar Sinha launched a scathing attack against Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, saying that the JD(U) leader will soon find himself behind bars if corruption continues unabated in the state.
The Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared his intention of making the country corruption-free. The people of this country are committed towards making India corruption and crime-free. Nitish Kumar will then realise the sins he has committed, the result of which will be that he will also land where his elder brother (Lalu Yadav) has gone (jail).”
Earlier, a war of words broke out between JDU and BJP leaders after Nitish Kumar said that the saffron party will not get more than 50 seats in the 2024 general elections. Nitish Kumar later retracted his earlier statement, but the BJP has continued to take a jibe at the Bihar CM over the remark.
BJP leader and former Bihar deputy CM Tarkishore Prasad said, “Nitish Kumar’s comments are ridiculous and manifests the political depression he is undergoing. It was with BJP’s support that the JDU won 16 seats in the 2019 general elections from two seats it got in 2014. Nitish Kumar could not save Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh and was never able to form a government in Bihar on his own since 2005. Predicting the BJP would get less than 50 seats shows he is in depression.”
