Congress dares RJD to exit grand alliance in Bihar

Patna, Sep 13 (IANS) Reacting to repeated attacks on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar by RJD leaders, the Congress on Tuesday dared the Lalu Prasad-led party to quit the grand alliance.

Congress state President Ashok Choudhary said: “If there is a problem with or complaint against Nitish Kumar, then the RJD is free to exit the grand alliance-led-government.”

The Congress is an ally of the grand alliance of the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and RJD in the state.

Choudhary said it was unfair of the RJD to criticise Nitish Kumar despite being a part of the state government and the ruling alliance. “There is an attempt to tarnish the image of Nitish Kumar,” he said.

RJD Vice President and former Union Minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh and former MP Mohammad Shahabuddin had taken jibes at Nitish Kumar, calling him “Chief Minister of circumstances”.

The JD-U on Monday appealed to Lalu Prasad to restrain senior leaders of his party from speaking out publicly against Nitish Kumar.
