The BJP opposition leader in Bihar’s Legislative Council, Samrat Choudhary, attacked Prime Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday for his distribution of nomination letters in the state’s Panchayati Raj department.
Speaking to reporters in the capital Patna on Wednesday, Mr Choudhary claimed that the panchayat secretaries to whom the prime minister distributed nomination letters on July 15 had already been posted.
The BJP leader further claimed that while 11,329 panchayat secretaries were recruited, only 3,500 received nomination letters.
Tejashwi Yadav (Deputy Prime Minister) lied on his birthday. The panchayat secretaries, who were seconded on July 15, were again given nomination letters. The Block Panchayati Raj Officer (BPRO) was reinstated on August 3, and our government (BJP-RJD) government) fell on August 9, the BJP leader claimed.
He went on to claim that the prime minister no longer exercises the same power as CM he did under the previous government. He went on to say, without mentioning name, that Nitish Kumar was remotely controlled by Tejashwi and following his orders from the ‘Super CM’. “Nitish Kumar does not have the same powers as the Prime Minister. He sits on the lap of a super CM,” he said.
Mr Choudhary added that it was during the previous regime of the BJP-JDU that the process of making more than 1 lakh agreements was initiated. “However, it is only now that the nomination letters are being circulated. The government of Nitish Kumar and Tejashwi Yadav is telling a lot of lies.
Claiming that the bromance and bonhomie between the ‘uncle’ (Nitish) and ‘cousin’ (Tejashwi) were just playing to the gallery because there are problems inside, the BJP leader claimed: “Nitish Kumar is trying to cling to Tejashwi’s coat- tails like he’s trying to run away.”
Mr Choudhary, who also lashed out at the government over the reservation issue, claimed that the state government is opposed to reservations for both upper castes and Muslims.
