Nitish Kumar should quit NDA; declare Tejashwi as CM’: Digvijaya Singh

Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has urged Nitish Kumar to quit his alliance with BJP and RSS and announce Tejashwi Yadav as the Chief Minister of Bihar.

‘Nitish ji, Bihar has become small for you.

You should join national politics.

Do not let the British's policy of ‘divide and rule’ practiced by Sangh destroy socialists like you who believe in the secular ideology.

Do consider.

This will be a true tribute to Mahatma Gandhi and Jayaprakash Narayan.

You are a politician descended from their legacy and now is the time to return to their party.

I would like to remind you that the Janata Party was broken on the basis of the Dual Membership of the Sangh.

Leave BJP & RSS.

Save the country,’ Digvijaya Singh added.

This comes a day after NDA under Nitish Kumar emerged as the winner in the Bihar assembly election.

Nitish Kumar’s party JDU, however, managed to win only 43 seats while the BJP won 74 seats making it the senior partner in the alliance.

JDU leader KC Tyagi lashed out at the BJP over the defection of 6 JDU MLAs to the BJP in Arunachal Pradesh. ‘We express anguish over six JD (U) MLAs from Arunachal Pradesh joining BJP.

He also attacked the BJP over the Love Jihad law in several BJP ruled states and said that the JDU does not support such divisive laws. ‘An atmosphere of hatred and division is being created in the country in the name of 'love jihad'.
