Senior JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar on Friday said that BJP’s victory run would stop in Bihar this year as it resorted to divisive tactics to cover up its failure in not keeping the poll promises.
BJP’s victory chariot would stop here. “BJP ka dheere dheere hawa nikal raha hai…2015 me pakhand ka parajay ho jayega (The air of BJP is leaking slowly…2015 will see the end of its hypocrisy),” Kumar informed.
Kumar, who is former Chief Minister of Bihar, said 2014 saw BJP coming to power on false promises of bringing back black money, creating jobs for youths and special status to Bihar among others.
“But, all these promises seem being kept on the back burner and the BJP with the help of radical saffron outfits has resorted to divisive tactics by promoting religious conversion and glorifying Nathuram Godse, the killer of father of the nation, to divert peoples attention from these agenda,” he said.
About the merger of old Janata parivar, Kumar who is playing an important role in the unity of splinter parties, said “merger is definite and only some formalities are left to be completed.”
Asked if he would lead the united Janata party in Bihar in the poll later this year, Kumar said “these issues would be decided at right time after the merger process is completed.”
Asked if Congress and Left would be invited to work with the united Janata Party to defeat BJP, Kumar did not dismiss the possibility but said these were issues of future.
