CM Nitish’s fresh salvo at Amit Shah just 20 years after he began his political career

Nitish Kumar fired another salvo against Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday, saying he didn’t give a damn what those whose political career began just 20 years ago had to say.

He said this in response to journalists’ inquiries regarding Shah’s claim that “disciples” of Jayaprakash Narayan are now sitting in Congress’ lap for the sake of power in Sitab Diyara, his ancestral village.

“Did the person whose name you are taking know what JP stood for first-hand?” During the JP movement (of 1974), we had earned our spurs.

“Yet, they do have a chance at power at the moment. A lot of media attention is paid to them. There has been prominent coverage of his diatribe about me in all English newspapers in Delhi. Nevertheless, Kumar, who had served as Bihar’s chief minister for the longest time, could care less.

Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav had promised 10 lakh jobs, but the Mahagathbandhan government hadn’t delivered them. Sanjay Jaiswal took potshots at the Mahagathbandhan government in a Facebook post.

“Who’s this guy?” “I can’t figure out who you’re talking about,” the JD(U) leader said, causing laughter among his senior party colleagues, who had followed him to the Ram Manohar Lohia park in the city. The CM always goes there on the anniversary of the socialist ideologue’s death.

A mischievous smile crossed Kumar’s face. He asked Jaiswal, who is serving his third consecutive term from Pashchim Champaran Lok Sabha, how long it has been since he left the RJD. In 2005, he ran for RJD in the assembly elections but lost.

Ahead of the 2009 election, he joined the BJP. The seat of Bettiah, which now falls under Pashchim Champaran, was held by his father Madan Jaiswal, a senior BJP leader.
