Nitish has Surrendered before BJP: Paswan

Patna: At a press conference in Patna on Tuesday, Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president Ram Vilas Paswan tried to prick Chief Minister Nitish Kumar saying the latter had completely surrendered before the 'communal' Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and he should stop pretending as if he was opposed to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

"There is no daylight between Nitish Kumar and BJP leaders and it is time he stopped this shenanigan of opposing Narendra Modi because people now know what the truth is," the LJP chief said.

Accusing the Chief Minister of failing to fulfill his electoral promises, Paswan said that the people of Bihar had enough of Kumar's lies and false pretenses and were ready for a change in the administration.

"Nitish Kumar knows that he is going to lose big in the next Assembly elections and that is why he announced his decision to contest the polls with the BJP," the former Central Minister whose party failed to win even one seat in Bihar in the last Assembly polls, said.

Paswan also demanded resignation from the Chief Minister on moral grounds saying he had failed to live up to the expectations of the people and had let the state go in the hands of the criminals causing a sharp increase in crime across the state.

The LJP chief also accused the government of wasting too much money on inviting prominent industrialists who came to Bihar, enjoyed their state-sponsored visit and left without making any commitment towards the state.

"For all the money spent on hosting these industrialists, the government could have spent the money on a number of welfare schemes," Paswan said.
