Rahul Gandhi is responsible for my sudden exit from the alliance: Nitish

Nitish left the alliance between RJD, Congress and JDU in 2017 after Central Bureau of Investigation filed an FIR against Tejashwi on corruption issues and both the parties turned foes. "I have always said that I'll never tolerate crime, corruption and communalism. RLD people made it difficult for me to work so I had to step aside." Nitish was quoted saying.

New Delhi: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar accredited Congress president Rahul Gandhi of his unexpected exit from the grand coalition of Bihar.

Nitish said that he lost faith in Congress after Rahul refused to raise his voice on the illicit acts of his ex-deputy and Rashtriya Janata Dal leader, Tejashwi. He also said that his party helped Congress to contest for 40 seats in the assembly elections of 2015. Despite these facts Congress forgot the contributions of JDU and kept mum on the probe against Tejashwi.

Nitish left the alliance between RJD, Congress and JDU in 2017 after Central Bureau of Investigation filed an FIR against Tejashwi on corruption issues and both the parties turned foes. "I have always said that I'll never tolerate crime, corruption and communalism. RLD people made it difficult for me to work so I had to step aside." Nitish was quoted saying.

He also said that RLD people and their goons called police stations and used their influence to gain favours. There was anarchy prevailing everywhere and they interfered at all levels which made it difficult for him to control the state affairs.

Nitish said that his party (RLD) insisted Congress to contest for 40 seats and eventually Congress ended up winning 28 seats. He told media that just after his exit from the tie up, Bharatiya Janata Party extended its support to him, so he decided to join hands with BJP for the betterment of Bihar.
