Election Twist:Another JD(U) leader slams Nitish, hails Modi; expelled


Modi and Nitish Kumat
Patna, March 24: Several twists are making Indian politics more interesting ahead of crucial Lok Sabha election 2014. Another JD(U) leader Sabir Ali has been expelled from party for praising Narendra Modi. However, JD(U) claimed that Sabir Ali has been expelled over his derogatory remark against party and its leaders.

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.

Addressing a gathering in Bihar, Ali also praised BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi who is believed to be the arch rival of JD(U) leader and Bihar CM Nitish Kumar.

"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."
