Subramanian Swamy asks Nitish to reconsider snapping ties with BJP

Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Sunday urged Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to reconsider his decision to snap ties with the BJP-led NDA.

Muzaffarpur: Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Sunday urged Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to reconsider his decision to snap ties with the BJP-led NDA over the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi`s elevation as his party`s poll campaign panel chief two months ago.
"Nitish has been a respected political colleague of ours since the JP movement days in 1970s....His decision to part ways with the BJP-led NDA has come as a surprise to me," Swamy said during a function in Muzaffarpur town.

Recalling his anti-Congress political ideology, Swamy urged Kumar, a senior JD(U) leader, to reconsider his decision to snap ties with the NDA and return to main opposition alliance to ensure defeat of the Congress in the next general elections.

"The people want Modi to become the next prime minister to provide strong leadership and good government in the country," Swamy said and assailed the Congress-led UPA government for presiding over "corruption and scams" during its nearly two-term rule at the Centre.
