New Delhi, Feb. 4 (ANI): BJP leader Nand Kishore Yadav on Thursday criticised Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s reported move to forge a ‘mahagathbandhan’ in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the 2017 assembly polls, saying the alliance formed for momentary gains would not benefit such people in the long-run.
“I have a huge objection with the word ‘mahagathbandhan’. There was never a formation of the mahagathbandhan. The person, who was the founder of the mahagathbandhan, was Mulayam ji. Where is Mulayam ji and where is the mahagathbandhan? It is not for the first time that Nitish ji is stepping into other states. He has made similar efforts earlier as well in UP, Jharkhand, Delhi,” he told ANI.
“The mahagathbandhan you are talking about is already getting weak. The people with whom they are running the government in Bihar are not involved in Uttar Pradesh. What sort of an alliance is this? Only for momentary gains they are doing this, it will not benefit them in the long run,” he added.
While Nitish aiming to form the grand-alliance yet again, the Samajwadi Party has made its stand clear and said that it would go solo and not bome part of any alliance.
The Mulayam Singh Yadav-led party had also walked out of the JD (U)-RJD-Congress grand alliance in Bihar and formed a third front to contest the assembly polls. (ANI)
