Patna: Describing the efforts of merger of Janata Parivar parties as "unethical", BJP chief Amit Shah today said his party was not bothered about it as people would reject them in the coming Bihar Assembly poll.
"Both Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar all along fought against Congress. Nitish Kumar in league with BJP fought against Lalu Prasad for 17 years and now they all are joining hands. For this I called it 'apavitra' (unethical) or 'anaitik' (unprincipled)," Shah told reporters here.
Shah, who is on his maiden visit to Bihar after becoming chief of the party since yesterday, said his party was not at all bothered about the merger of Janata Parivar as people would reject them in the upcoming Assembly poll.
"From Janata Parivar, janata (people) have come out and only parivar (families) has been left," he said.
Asked if BJP would extend support to Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi and include him in the party in case he is ousted by Nitish Kumar camp, Shah said "when the situation comes we'll see."
The BJP chief exuded confidence that party would win more than 185 seats in 243-member Bihar Assembly in the poll later this year and form its own government.
To a question if the party would project Sushil Modi or anybody else in the Bihar poll, he said "Party's Parliamentary board will decide whether to project anybody and if yes then whom."
