Keshav Maurya dares Nitish to hold fresh assembly polls
Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister and senior BJP leader Keshav Prasad Maurya on Sunday dared Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to hold fresh assembly polls by dissolving the state assembly if he has faith in the development work done by his government.
"They think that the alliance government of Congress, JD(U) and RJD is very powerful one. If it is so, then Nitish Kumar should not wait for 2019 Lok Sabha polls, rather he should dissolve assembly and hold elections afresh. Lotus will blossom here too like in UP," Maurya told a meeting held here to showcase the achievements of Narendra Modi government. "Nitish Kumar has a lust for power. He can't live without power...If he has faith in the work (developmental) done by him in the state, then he should hold fresh assembly polls and test his strength," the senior BJP leader said.
There is a complete panic in the grand alliance which is evident from the fact that a host of big leaders from JD(U), RJD and Congress have joined BJP on Sunday and this is not going to stop.
Ex Chief Minister Satish Kumar, Ex ministers Samrat Choudhary, Basawan Bhagat, Raghvendra Pratap Singh, Ex MLAs Ganesh Paswan, Dinesh Yadav (RJD) joined the BJP in the presence of Maurya.
