BJP takes a dig at Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, says 'jungle raj-2 continues'

New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday termed senior Janata Dal (United) leader Nitish Kumar's swearing-in as Bihar CM as 'jungle raj part II'.

Shortly after Nitish Kumar took oath as the Bihar CM, senior BJP leader and party spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain took to Twitter to take a dig at the newly anointed chief minister and former CM Lalu Prasad Yadav and indirectly also warned people of Bihar of a "looming danger of Kumar joining hands with Lalu".

“Nitish takes oath with the support of Laloo ji. Jungle Raj-2 continues in Bihar,” (sic) Shahnawaz Hussain tweeted.

In another tweet he wrote -"Nothing has changed in Bihar. Ministers of Manjhi government will continue in Nitish Kumar's government as well. With Lalu support, jungle raj will continue.  (कुछ नहीं बदला बिहार में । जो लोग मांझी सरकार में मंत्री थे, वही लोग नितिश सरकार में रहेंगे।लालू जी के समर्थन से जंगल राज चलता रहेगा।)”

The 66-year-old Janata Dal-United leader was administered the oath of office as the 24th chief minister of Bihar today by Governor Keshri Nath Tripathi.

Along with Nitish Kumar, 22 ministers also took oath at a simple ceremony at Raj Bhavan here. Most of the ministers were in his earlier cabinet and are considered loyal and trusted.

Nitish Kumar had resigned as chief minister last year after the JD(U)'s rout in the Lok Sabha polls. Jitan Ram Manjhi, who was made chief minister in May 2014, resigned on Feb 20 after falling out with Nitish.
