‘Modi, Nitish Kumar Used Muscle Power, Money But Couldn’t Stop’: Tejashwi Yadav

Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav, who failed to defeat Nitish Kumar in Bihar election, but managed to take his party to single-largest status, on Monday said that the mandate was in his favour and he was the real winner even if someone else was in the chief minister’s chair.

Tejashwi alleged fraud in the counting of postal ballots and demanded a recount, flagging narrow margins in 20 seats.

He said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar used money, muscle power and trickery but could not stop this 31-year-old. They could not stop the RJD from becoming the single-largest party,” as quoted by NDTV.

“See where Nitish Kumar’s glow has gone. He has been pushed to third position. This is a mandate for change. Nitish Kumar is sitting in the Chief Minister’s chair but we are in people’s hearts,” he added.

Tejashwi also wondered whether Nitish would “heed his conscience and give up his attachment to the chair”. Earlier, when Tejashwi’s name emerged in a corruption case in 2017, he resigned from the RJD and Congress and returned to the Bharatiya Janata Party-led alliance. Kumar said that he stepped down after heeding his conscience.

This year, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) retained power in Bihar with the BJP’s 74 seats taking the alliance past the majority mark of 122 in the 243-member.

“The mandate was for the Mahagathbandhan. The Chief Minister wants to come in from the chor darwaza (back door),” the former Deputy Chief Minister said.

However, several exit polls predicted Yadav’s victory in the elections but Nitish bucked anti-incumbency to win a fourth term.

“I demand that the ballots declared invalid be produced,” said Tejashwi Yadav.

Only 84,900 votes helped the NDA, shows data from the Election Commission. The overall difference in votes polled by the ruling alliance and the opposition was just 0.2 per cent, as per data.
