Targeting Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Manjhi said that there was no democracy in the party under Kumar.

While keeping all his options open, Manjhi also said that his Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) would join hands with any other political outfit after Bihar Assembly elections, and added he could play a role in forming the next government in Bihar.

Manjhi blames BJP, RJD for his downfall:

The 70-year-old leader also blamed the BJP's reluctance to take on Nitish Kumar and RJD president Lalu Prasad for not coming to his rescue ahead of the trust vote on February 20.

Focus on mega rally:

Manjhi, who is presently focusing on HAM's mega rally scheduled on April 20, said that at least 5 lakh people would attend the rally and would make some big announcements on that day.

While BJP is keen to have Manjhi on its side, some factions in JDU camp does not want to disown Manjhi to keep Mahadalit votes intact.
