Patna: The Janata Dal (United) on Sunday asserted that LJP chief Chirag Paswan, by campaigning against Nitish Kumar, has sealed his fate and won’t be a part of the NDA at the Centre after the Assembly elections are over.
“By speaking against Nitish tirelessly and making baseless allegations against a Chief Minister who has an enviable track record, Chirag has sealed his fate. Once the Bihar polls are over, he will be ousted from the NDA even at the Centre,” said JD (U) working president Ashok Choudhary here on Sunday.
The JD (U) was reacting to Chirag’s charge that “Nitish may make another somersault after November 10, the counting day, and form a Government with the Grand Alliance as soon as the BJP dumps him.”
“In 2015, Nitish spoke against Modi. But by 2017, he joined hands with the BJP. He is now speaking against Tejashwi but how long will it take for him to make another somersault and rejoin the Grand Alliance. He has an unparalleled track record of making U-turns,” averred Chirag.
Meanwhile, the 94 Assembly constituencies campaigning, where polling will be held on November 3, came to an end on Sunday evening.
