JD-U will do whatever needed to stop former ally BJP in Bihar
Araria: JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar on Friday vowed to do "whatever is required" to stop the BJP in Bihar, so as to prevent it from forming a government at the Centre.
The Bihar Chief Minister said that with that objective in view, the JD(U) was working in tandem with like-minded political parties. He was referring to his party`s alliance with the Left parties.
"We will do whatever is required to stop the BJP in Bihar during the general election so as to prevent it from forming government at the Centre," he told an election meeting in Araria district in support of the JD(U) candidate Vijay Mandal.
Observing that the erstwhile ally had set out on a divisive agenda to polarize voters on communal lines to win the Lok Sabha election, the JD(U) stalwart said its raking up of contentious issues like the Ram Temple, Uniform Civil Code and scrapping of the Article 370 of the Constitution was plain opportunism.
The Congress also came in the line of his fire for its role in unbridled price rise, corruption and scams during the UPA government`s decade-long rule.
"The country`s prestige is at stake in the world stage due to lack of governance," he said.
