Nitish blames BJP for release of separatist leader
Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Sunday blamed BJP for the release of jailed separatist leader Masarat Alam in Jammu and Kashmir and said that the saffron party was “responsible” for whatever was happening there.
“The BJP is responsible for whatever is happening in Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday. We have been continuously saying that the alliance of BJP-PDP to form a government there is the philosophical demise of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, the founder of Bharatiya Jansangh,” Kumar said. “BJP cannot absolve itself from the things that are happening there, as it is their government in alliance with PDP. It will have to answer the issues that have cropped up there and are rocking the entire country,” Kumar added. The Bihar CM was talking to mediapersons on the sidelines of a function organised in the state capital on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
Kumar pointed out that Mukherjee had advocated “one flag, one constitution” for the entire country.
“But the leaders of BJP have killed his philosophy and thoughts this time in Jammu and Kashmir by forming an alliance with PDP for power,” he said.
