New Delhi: LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan today shrugged off the resignation of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar as a “drama” and claimed that there was internal rebellion in JD(U) and he was left with no option.
The former Union minister said that people of Bihar have rejected both—RJD chief Lalu Prasad and JD(U)-- and the next government in Bihar will be of NDA in which his party is an ally.
“It's all a drama, Nitish Kumar has no option but to quit as there was internal rebellion in his party. Whether election happens in Bihar today, tomorrow or a year after, the NDA will form a government,” Paswan told PTI.
The LJP chief, who was accorded a grand welcome by party workers in Delhi today after his party won six of the seven seats it contested in alliance with the BJP, said that the alliance between the two parties will continue even in the Assembly election for Bihar, which as per schedule will happen by October 2015.
“We will fight in alliance and win elections in Bihar. Nitish Kumar's resignation is good riddance for people of Bihar, who have rejected both RJD chief Lalu Prasad and JD(U).
