    Nitish Kumar has betrayed the backward class people: Sushil Modi

    In 2020, we got votes in name of Narendra Modi. Had we received votes in your(Nitish Kumar)name we would've crossed 150-175&you wouldn't have won just 43. When it seemed situation isn't good,Narendra Modi did 3-4 rallies in one day. 2020 mandate was for Narendra Modi. BJP has never betrayed anyone. We made Nitish Kumar the Bihar CM, five times. RJD made him the CM twice, we did that five times. We had a relation for 17 years. But you severed ties (with us) twice. They are saying that attempts were being made to break JD(U), example of Shiv Sena is being given. Shiv Sena was not our ally, it was the ruling party there. You (JDU) were our ally. We have never broken any of our allies: Sushil Kumar Modi, BJP RS MP & former Deputy CM of Bihar
