Prime News, National, Lucknow/Mumbai, July 29:- Tagging Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s move of quitting the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ and joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as anti-democratic, the Congress on Saturday said it was deceitful on his part to do so.
Defending Bihar former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam said there are only charges against the former which have not proven yet, and therefore one cannot call him corrupt.
“If one is termed as corrupt, if there are any such charges against him, then Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivpal Singh Chouhan and even Prime Minister have charges of corruption against them. Have they resigned?” Nirupam told media.
Echoing similar sentiments, Congress leader Ashok Singh said the mandate of the people of Bihar has been insulted.
