Prime News, Nation (New Delhi), July 27:- RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Thursday said that he will appeal in the Supreme Court (SC) against Bihar governor Keshari Nath Tripathi’s decision to invite JD(U) president Nitish Kumar to form the government with support from the BJP.
Lalu said that after the grand alliance won the 2015 assembly election with the Congress in Bihar, beating BJP, he is the one who approved Nitish as chief minister.
Lalu said, “After creating a false image of being corruption-free, Nitish touted himself as prime ministerial candidate for 2019 Lok Sabha elections. If I wanted, I wouldn’t even have made him the chief minister. His party JD(U) only had 71 MLAs and RJD 80 MLAs.”
Lalu alleged that there was a conspiracy between the BJP and the JD(U) to sideline the RJD.
Lalu further added that “On many occasions, Nitish and PM Modi, had lunch. The timing of whatever happened was already fixed. Nitish joined hands with the BJP to ensure raids by CBI, ED on RJD leaders.”
RJD leader further said there was anger in the hearts of the people at Nitish’s decision to side with the BJP as they saw he was colluding with communal forces.
