The alliance of RJD, JD(U) and Congress in Bihar has been termed as “immoral” by the BJP and they said it is formed out of fear of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s popularity and this alliance will face huge defeat in forthcoming Assembly elections in Bihar, state BJP unit said.
Slamming the so-called grand alliance stitched against the BJP, Dinesh Sharma, the senior leader said the tie-up between RJD, JD(U) and Congress is opportunistic
“Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has been the critic of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav. Both are followers of legendary Jaiprakash Narayan who had led an agitation against the Congress.
“Bihar’s pride is at stake in elections. All three (JD-U, RJD and Congress) have come together out of fear for Modi and BJP and the good work done by Centre. This immoral alliance will suffer a staggering defeat,” Sharma, national vice-president of BJP and in charge of Gujarat told reporters here.
Sharma visited Mumbai on Friday to interact with prominent Bihari citizens who are settled in Mumbai, as part of the BJP’s election campaign.
The state will go for five-phase elections beginning from October 12.
“Bihar Assembly elections are a fight between two ideologies; the nationalist agenda of BJP for strong India and opposition parties having different election symbols with a single-point agenda of ‘Modi and BJP hatao’. These parties are not concerned about development”, he alleges.
He also hits out at Akhilesh Yadav, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister for spreading the falsehood that he received investment commitments of Rs 33,000 crore during his visit on Friday.
“People of Uttar Pradesh want a break-up of these investment proposals as no top industrialists was present at the meeting yesterday. Since no one is interested in coming to Lucknow, the CM (Yadav) came down to Mumbai but there has been no response here as well,” he said.
