Nitish Kumar indulging in ‘horse trading’, alleges BJP
BJP on Wednesday accused Nitish Kumar of indulging in “horse trading” in his bid to become the chief minister of Bihar and claimed he has no faith in constitutional authorities or his own MLAs.
“No one is a bigger horse-trader than Nitish Kumar. He has been indulging in such activities earlier too. He has no faith in constitutional authorities or his own MLAs whose support he is claiming himself to be become the Chief Minister. He should wait for the Governor’s decision,” BJP Spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said after Kumar brought his MLAs to Delhi.
He said Kumar is trying to project as if he paraded the MLAs before the President. “That is not so,” he said. Former deputy chief minister and BJP leader Sushil Modi also accused Kumar of being “a master of horse trading” and termed the parading of MLAs in Delhi as “a political drama”. Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly Nand Kishore Yadav accused Kumar and Lalu Prasad of playing “dirty politics” and said Kumar who is “chasing” the CM’s chair, should learn to respect constitutional authorities.
