In a public meeting in Purnia district, Amit Shah said, “They (Lalu-Nitish alliance) are saying that I have come here to incite. But I need not provoke. Do those things Lalu Prasad Yadav. I want to convey this message to the border districts, no one should be afraid. No one needs to fear Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rule.”
Gerua Shibir has been hit hard in Bihar in the last month. After breaking alliance with BJP, Nitish’s party JDU took the hand of Lalu’s RJD. In this context, Amit Shah complained that Nitish’s party has disrespected the people of Bihar by changing its alliance partners.
After losing power in Bihar, this is the first time the Home Minister came to that state. Which is considered quite significant. Meanwhile, various speculations have been made around Nitish-Sonia meeting. All in all, there is a new buzz around the anti-BJP alliance in national politics.
