Hyderabad: Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan on Saturday said Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar joining hands with his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal will not have any effect on the upcoming assembly elections in the state.
"AAP is in a trouble of its own, their MLAs are going to jail. Why did Nitish Kumar need Kejriwal? He wants to improve his image because he has joined hands with a corrupt leader like Lalu Yadav. All this is not going to have any effect, we are going to win the elections by two-third majority and form NDA government in Bihar," Paswan told ANI.
Nitish Kumar was in Delhi to attend the 'Bihar Samman Sammelan' as chief guest. The event was organized by the Delhi Government in an attempt to help Kumar connect with the Delhi-based Bihar voters.
Kejriwal and 11 AAP leaders with roots in Bihar organized the event in New Delhi to felicitate Nitish and pledge their support to him for the elections. The two leaders will also work out a schedule for holding and addressing joint public meetings.
