Taking a dig at the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar after declaration of Assembly and Lok Sabha bypolls seats, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and Lalu Yadav’s son said, “Now it’s turn for Nitishji to give clarifications on the moral corruption he carried out.”
“Nitishji is Bhishma Pitamah of moral corruptions. He had suggested us to go to people’s court. Voters gave their decision in our favour,” said Yadav.
The bypolls were the first electoral battle in Bihar after state Chief Minister Nitish Kumar joined hands with the BJP-led NDA to form a government in Bihar after severing ties with the RJD.
Yadav on Twitter wrote, “By overnight switching sides Nitish Kumar has axed his feet and rendered himself politically irrelevant!”
“CM Nitish and Sushil Modi did many road shows aggressively. Nitish Ji threw his all Weight, Cadre, Money AND govt machinery to defeat this Baccha but all in vein,” adds Tejaswi.
In the results announced for two Assembly seats and Lok Sabha seat, both Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have won a seat each in Bihar bypolls.
While, BJP retained the Bhabua assembly seat, RJD was able to hold on the the Jehanabad assembly seat. Kumar Krishna Mohan was contesting on RJD ticket from Jehanabad seat. It was vacant following death of his father MLA Mudrika Yadav.
BJP’s Rinky Rani Pandey was contesting from Bhabua assembly seat following the death of her husband MLA Anand Bhushan Pandey.
The RJD also bagged the Araria Lok Sabha seat with a huge number from its near rivals, the BJP. Tejaswi Yadav had fielded Sarfaraz against BJP’s Pradip Kumar Singh. The seat had fallen vacant after death of Sarfaraz’s father MP Mohammed Taslimuddin.
