Alleging that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had "crossed all limits of opportunism", Lok Janshakti Party chief Ram Vilas Paswan on Sunday said his stand that the JD(U) leader will not sever ties with BJP was vindicated after Kumar attended the NDA rally in Ludhiana.
"Nitish Kumar has crossed all limits of opportunism. He had earlier stopped Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi from visiting Bihar during elections and had not even put photos of L K Advani in party campaign posters there, fearing Muslim backlash. Now, as soon as the elections got over in Bihar, he hugged Modi in the NDA rally today," Paswan told PTI.
In an apparent attack on Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, Pasan said he had been maintaining that Nitish will not leave BJP. "Now those people who were propagating the JD (U) leader's secular credentials and saying that they will take him along need to think," he said.
Paswan said he had resigned from the NDA ministry after the Gujarat riots. "Nitish continued as Railway minister in NDA government and interfered with the investigation of Sabarmati Express inferno incident," he alleged.
