BJP hits out at JD-U, says focus on ousting UPA govt instead of targeting allies

After a stern warning from the Janata Dal (United) leader and Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar over National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) prime ministerial candidate, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) hits out at its biggest ally saying it should refrain from targeting its allies and instead focus on removing the ‘corrupt’ United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government. Nitish had, in a veiled threat to the BJP, made it clear that his party will not accept the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the NDA’s prime ministerial nominee.

‘It is unfortunate if they (JD(U)) concentrate their energies on our chief ministers and dilute focus on ousting UPA. We reject all unfounded inference against Narendra Modi,’ said BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman, targeting Nitish, who said only someone who can take all sections of society together can become take the top post.

The BJP also hinted that since Modi has been praised for Gujarat’s development, Nitish might have felt it unfair and that may be the reason for his criticism. ‘Though Nitish is developing Bihar, he may feel Gujarat has progressed more,’ BJP leader Kalraj Mishra said.
