Chirag Paswan slams Nitish Kumar for insulting people’s mandate twice, seeks fresh polls in Bihar

Patna, 9/8: Lok Janshakti Party chief Chirag Paswan on Tuesday demanded imposition of President’s Rule and mid-term elections in Bihar where Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) dumped its ally BJP to join hands with RJD and other Opposition parties.


He said Nitish, who submitted his resignation and is all set to be sworn in as Chief Minister again with the support of RJD, Congress, Left parties and others, has insulted the people’s mandate for the third time in nine years.


Nitish has been nursing a grudge against Chirag as he believes that he allowed his party to undercut JD(U)’s prospects in the 2020 Bihar Assembly elections by fielding candidates against it only while leaving the BJP. In the last few days, JD(U) leaders have been talking about “Chirag 2.0” to target the BJP and set the stage for the final separation.
