'Can Nitish Babu Become PM': Amit Shah Slams Bihar CM For Changing Political Alliance, Says He 'Backstabbed' Anti Congress Politics

Union Home Minister Amit Shah unleashed a stinging assault on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday, claiming that the JD(U) chief “backstabbed” the anti-Congress politics from which he came and “sat on Lalu Yadav’s laps” to be Prime Minister, news agency ANI reported.

Speaking at the ‘Jana Bhavna Mahasabha’ in Bihar’s Purnea, Shah stated: “Nitish Kumar backstabbed the anti-Congress politics, from which he was born, and sat in the laps of RJD and Congress to become the Prime Minister. Can Nitish Kumar become the Prime Minister by changing the party (alliance) with the desire for power? Can this government run in Bihar?”

Recalling previous instances in which Nitish Kumar switched sides, Shah said, “Can Nitish babu become the PM by changing political alliances? He has betrayed many since he entered politics. Lalu ji, beware that Nitish babu might sit in Congress’s lap tomorrow leaving you behind.”

Shah lambasted the state’s law and order situation, saying there is a “environment of fear” in the state since the Mahagathbandhan administration retook power.

“Today when I’m here in border districts, the duo of Lalu Yadav (RJD chief) and (CM) Nitish Kumar have a stomachache. Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar say that I am coming to create conflict. Lalu ji, there is no need of mine to create conflict, you are sufficient to do this. You have done this all your life. I have come here to say that when Lalu has joined the government, and Nitish Kumar is sitting on his lap, there is an atmosphere of fear here. I have come to tell you there is no need to be scared. There is the Narendra Modi government here,” he was quoted by ANI in its report.

The turnout at the event, according to Shah, is a “warning sign for the Lalu-Nitish administration.”

“There would be a beginning of sounding the bugle from Bihar against the introduction of selfishness and power that Nitish Kumar has given by deceiving the BJP and sitting in the lap of Lalu,” he added.

Amit Shah arrived in Purnea, Bihar, earlier today for a two-day tour.
