`Nitish Kumar self-centred, decided to split with BJP on his own`
Zee Media Bureau
Patna: The tussle between former alliance partners - the Bharatiya Janata Party and Janata Dal (United) – may get fierce.
A rebel JD(U) leader on Wednesday claimed that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has been in touch with Congress through AICC general secretary in charge of Maharashtra, Mohan Prakash, for the last one year.
The rebel JD(U) leader`s statement has added to the rumours that alliance between JD(U) and Congress is on the cards.
Notably, the Congress had extended unconditional support to the JD(U) government during the confidence vote in the Assembly.
Chandraraj Singhvi, who has tendered his resignation to JD(U) president Sharad Yadav, further claimed that Nitish Kumar decided to split with the BJP on his own and he didn’t hold deliberations with anyone on the issue.
Singhvi further described Kumar as "a self-centred man".
When asked to react on Singhvi`s statements, Janata Dal (United) leader Ali Anwar said everything was fine within the party. "I don`t even know about this leader," Anwar added.
After the JD(U) dumped the BJP last month over Narendra Modi, speculation is rife that some BJP legislators may join the JD(U).
Bihar Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh claimed that over 40 BJP legislators and 17 from the Rashtriya Janata Dal were knocking the doors to join the JD(U).
