Patna, Nov 9: The Congress on Saturday, Nov 8 maintained that the resignation submitted by five JD(U) Lok Sabha MPs was an eyewash and drama, which should be dismissed with the contempt it deserves. The party insisted that the text of the resignation letter was such that the resignation tendered would not be accepted. Besides, the letter should have been submitted to Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee.
In this regard, state Congress chief Anil Kumar Sharma, said that if it would have been a one-line resignation, then there was possibility of its being accepted. As a matter of fact, the JD(U) has invented and enacted the resignation drama on the eve of the parliamentary elections to distract the minds of people from the failure of the Nitish Kumar government in the state, Sharma said, adding that CM Nitish Kumar had failed on every front.
According to him, the resignation drama had left no impact, because JD(U) should have broken its ties with the NDA to which Shiv Sena belongs. Continuance of the tie with the Shiv Sena and protesting against the violence on the Biharis do not gel, Sharma said.
