The Bharatiya Janata Party and Janata Dal United alliance in Bihar seems to be in a state of utter chaos as far as the understanding between the alliance partners and within the Nitish Kumar-led party on the Citizenship Amendment Act is concerned.
The BJP leader and Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister, Mr. Sushil Kumar Modi, on Monday launched a blistering attack against JD(U) national vice-president,Mr. Prashant Kishor, over his comments on the seat-sharing between the two parties in the state.
Mr. Sushil tweeted that those involved in the business of collecting political data and coining slogans are only benefiting opposition parties.
'The 2020 assembly polls in the state will be fought under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. The decision regarding seat-sharing will be decided by the leadership of both parties’ leadership at the right time. There are no problems in that,' he tweeted.
'But those who have joined politics without any ideology and running the business of collecting election data and coining slogans, are making statements against the coalition dharma and benefiting the opposition alliance,' he added.
Mr. Sushil Modi’s remark comes a day after Mr. Kishor said that the JD(U) headed by Mr. Nitish Kumar, is bigger than the BJP in Bihar and should contest more seats in the Assembly polls. The state will go to polls in October-November in 2020. Mr. Nitish Kumar will seek fourth consecutive term.
'A person running a business for profit first tries to create a market for his service, thinks about the welfare of the country later,' the BJP leader said.
