Election Twist:Another JD(U) leader slams Nitish, hails Modi; expelled
Ali, whose tenure in the Upper House ends in April, was earlier denied a berth in the House by the party. He recently said that he was denied ticket as he belongs to a minority caste.
"Nitish Kumar ditched me. He promised me a Rajya Sabha berth, then didn't give me. They used me and are now throwing me like tissue paper," Ali said.
From distance Modi's policies look nice. Those who have capabilities should rule
He also added, "From distance Modi's policies look nice. Those who have capabilities should rule the country."
Earlier another JD(U) leader Shivanand Tiwari had praised Modi while attacking Nitish Kumar in public. Tiwari was quoted as saying, "JDU's alliance with the BJP was working fine. JDU broke ties with the BJP because of national politics. BJP elevated Narendra Modi, who comes from a very humble ground. He has struggled a lot to reach where he is today and for this I admire him a lot. We will fight him but we should also be aware of his strengths."
