Amid political drama that had unfolded in the political landscape in Bihar, Janata Dal (United) president Nitish Kumar took oath as Chief Minister of the state after joining hands with BJP to reclaim the government. BJP leader Sushil Modi was also sworn-in as Deputy chief minister of the state at Raj Bhavan in Patna.
On Thursday, Kumar had resigned as chief minister and pulled out from the Grand Alliance, alleging his partner RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav and his son former Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav for not explain in media over alleged corruption charges in the land-for-hotels case.
RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav addressed the media on how Nitish Kumar betrayed him and his party, snapped ties with the JDU and formed an alliance with the BJP.
Here are 10 major quotes of Lalu Prasad Yadav from his address to the media
Some media who we had thought were good, they took supari. See how the US media is fighting Trump, here media fights opposition
On many occasions, Nitish met PM Modi, had lunch. The timing of whatever happened was already fixed
This match was already fixed.I dint trouble Nitish Kumar
Nitish has misled the people of the country by showcasing a dubious image. If I wanted I would not have made Nitish the CM of Bihar
Nitish Kumar is greedy for power, he has betrayed the people of Bihar and India
I put a tika on his forehead, said go rule the state, I had no greed in my heart, else why would I nominate him as Chief Minister
Nitish Kumar is huge opportunist. The mandate was against BJP, to throw out Modi-Shah out of Bihar. They said I was a beef eater
Past 15-20 yrs I have been fighting cases in courts. I was sentenced in a hurry. There was a conspiracy between Nitish K & BJP
