With ruling JD(U) staring at a big defeat in Bihar, BJP leader C P Thakur on Friday said that Nitish Kumar government will now fall on its own and claimed many of the JD(U) MLAs are in touch with the saffron party.
The former Bihar BJP president added that BJP will not seek dissolution of the assembly and Kumar’s government will fall on its own because people are “dissatisfied” with it.
LJP leader Chirag Paswan also spoke about a likely NDA government in Bihar in the next six months, saying Kumar does not enjoy a majority.
“Whatever will happen that will happen through democratic process only. We are against violation of democratic norms…. There are many JD(U) leaders who are contacting us,” said Thakur.
Thakur said the BJP’s surge in the state was natural. He said there will be a strong BJP government at the centre.
“It is natural that BJP government is expected in Bihar as well,” he added.
He said let the counting process be over before “any further move”.
After splitting with BJP, JD(U) is running a government with the support of Congress MLAs and independents as the party does not have a majority.
