Bihar CM Nitish launches JD (U) campaign from BJP’s backyard
Varanasi: Sounding the virtual election bugle ahead of 2017 Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, the Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal (U) president Nitish Kumar accused BJP for misleading the voters on false promises.
“Whatever the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) promised during the elections was later termed as ‘jumla’ by their national President,” Nitish said in his public address in Varanasi on Thursday. Fresh from the recent success in Bihar elections, he spared nothing to launch a frontal attack on the BJP.
The meeting of Nitish assumed significance as this denoted the future strategy of his party and that too in the parliamentary constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
What else he said:
- They (BJP) had mocked the ‘mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) but people of Bihar taught them a lesson.
- They have not done anything on the promise of bringing the black money within 100 days even after two years of their stay in the Centre.
- I have come here to alert the people of Uttar Pradesh from BJP.
- He ridiculed the BJP on the issue of unemployment asking ‘’where is employment?’’
- There is a difference between doing and working of the BJP.
- They started with the issue of ‘Love-Jihad’ then ‘Ghar Wapsi’ and raised the issue of ‘Beef’ during the Bihar elections.
- BJP is talking about patriotism but in reality they played no role in getting the independence.
- It is the win of socialists that instead of holding the tri-colour the BJP is holding their saffron flag. Received Guard of Honour:
- The Bihar Chief Minister received a ‘Guard of Honour’ on reaching the Circuit House.
- He addressed the party rally at National Inter College ground in Pindra area at 1410 hours.
