On Saturday, Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav claimed that after five phases of elections it was clear that the disputes between Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar were the main reason behind its failure in Bihar.
“Five of the seven phases of the elections are over and NDA is finished. On 23 May, Bhajpa Gayi (BJP is gone). There is an internal conflict in the NDA, especially in Bihar. Nitish Kumar asks his own party leaders to say that he will be the Prime Minister. Kumar and Modi both are greedy and that is why there is a lack of trust in their coalition,” Tejashwi told reporters here.
He further said that the road-show of Amit Shah will not make a difference as the people are against the anti-reservation policies of the BJP. “I want Amit Shah to answer why the central government removed the sub-quota reservation for OBC’s, the Kushwahas, Dangi, Patel and Ahirs. Paltu Chacha (Nitish Kumar) on the other hand says that nobody can end reservations. There is a big difference between their words and their actions. The people need an answer in this road show,” Tejashwi said.
He further said that “Nitish does not want equal pay for equal work to be given to the para-teachers and thus they opposed their demands. That is why the teachers are going to strike, they are angry with the state government. When we come to power we will try to fulfil their demands”.
