Backing Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who said he would not support one who indulges in corruption, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday stated that Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family have looted the people of Bihar.
“Secularism is not to hide your corruption and wrongdoings. We will not support the one who will accumulate income through wrong means,” Nitish had said.
BJP leader Ashwini Kumar Choubey said Lalu’s kin amassed huge amount of wealth and when the Enforcement Directorate (ED) raided them, they claimed to be innocent. Choubey further questioned, how could a simple man become owner of thousands of crores of rupees.
Meanwhile, reacting on former Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav’s statement of Nitish-BJP insulting the mandate of people, BJP leader S. Prakash said the former is only playing a victim card.
