History will not forgive Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar for going against the mandate of the people who had supported the grand alliance in the state, suspended Janata Dal (United) leader and Rajya Sabha member Ali Anwar said on Saturday.

Anwar accused Nitish Kumar of sacrificing the nation for saving his government.

“You (Nitish Kumar) sacrificed the nation to stay in power. History will not forgive (you). We will go across the country and tell people about what happened,” Anwar told ANI.

Anwar was suspended from the JD (U) parliamentary party for participating in the Opposition meeting called by Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

“MP Ali Anwar stands suspended from the JD(U)’s parliamentary party after he participated in the Opposition parties’ meeting. This was against the party,” JD(U) general secretary KC Tyagi told ANI.

Justifying his stand of attending the Opposition’s meet called to discuss unity and chalk out a strategy against the Narendra Modi government, Anwar said he was still following the people’s mandate.

“Nitish Kumar went against the mandate. We are still following the mandate of the people, which was in the favour of the grand alliance,” he said.

“The ones who changed the mandate should be questioned,” he added.

Anwar said leaders like him and Sharad Yadav listened to their conscience and that any sort of sacrifice for the truth will be less. He said whatever has happened was a political mishap.

“The common man is with us. There is restlessness in the entire country due to the economic and social policies and political style of the government at the centre and now in Bihar as well. Somebody will have to break it. Someone like Sharad Yadav or Ali Anwar will have to come forward to break it. We have faith that not only people of Bihar but of the entire country is with us,” he said.
