With breaking and making of political equations ahead of the national election, the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar attributed his sudden exit from the opposition alliance to Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s inability to take a stand on corruption charges.
The allegation had been on the former deputy and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav.
Nitish Kumar, who also heads the Janata Dal (United), claimed that his party was instrumental in the Congress getting 40 seats to contest in the 2015 assembly polls.
Nitish Kumar added that Congress chief did not come up with even a statement on the issue.
Nitish Kumar had quit the alliance, comprising the JD(U), the RJD and the Congress, in July 2017 after the CBI lodged an FIR against Tejashwi Yadav on corruption charges and the strife that followed between him and the RJD.
Nitish Kumar had snapped ties with the BJP in 2013 following differences over projection of Narendra Modi, the then Gujarat chief minister, as the prime ministerial candidate.
