Decision to walk out of grand alliance is in Bihar’s interest, says Nitish after taking oath
Patna, July 27: The decision to part ways with the RJD and join hands with the BJP was taken in the interest of Bihar and will ensure development and justice for the state, Nitish Kumar today said after being sworn in as the Bihar Chief Minister.
Kumar resigned the post on Wednesday night after a fall out with the alliance partner RJD over corruption charges against Lalu Yadav and some of his family members, including son Tejashwi, who was the then deputy CM. "Whatever decision we have taken will be in the interest of Bihar and of its people.
It will ensure development and justice.
It will also ensure progress. This is a collective decision. I ensure that our commitment is towards the people of Bihar," Nitish Kumar told reporters.
Will give befitting reply to Lalu
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Thursday that he will give befitting reply to the allegations made by RJD chief Lalu Prasad at an opportune time. He maintained that his decision to join hands with the BJP was in the state's interest.
"Will give befitting answers," Nitish Kumar told reporters when his response was sought on Lalu Prasad's allegations.
Lalu Prasad has alleged that Nitish Kumar has stabbed on the back of the people of Bihar and resigned as Chief Minister of the Grand Alliance not because of corruption allegations against Tejashwi Yadav but due to a murder case against himself.
