Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has clarified his recent “last election” remark, stating he is not retiring in the near future which his remark was misinterpreted.
” I did not speak about retirement … I constantly say the same thing at the last rally in every election that “ ant bhala to sab bhala’‘ (all is well that ends well). If you listen to the speech back and forth, whatever will be clear,” he was priced quote as stating by news agency ANI.
Mr Kumar, while campaigning for a Janata Dal United candidate in Bihar’s Purnia previously this month, stated: “This is the last day of election. The day after this election will end and this is my last election. Ant bhala to sab bhala(All’s well that ends well).”
Mr Kumar’s ally-turned-rival, the Rashtriya Janata Dal or RJD, had reacted to the announcement with scepticism. The celebration shared an old clip of the Chief Minister in which he reveals to the BJP, “ Rahein ya mitti mein mil jayenge, aap logon ke saath koi samjhauta nahin hoga(whether I make it through or not, a partnership with you runs out the concern). That chapter is closed”.
Not long after making that speech, Mr Kumar, in 2017, discarded Lalu Yadav’s party and signed up with the National Democratic Alliance.
” Check out his dialogue! Have you seen a guy with less morals and concepts?” Mr Yadav tweeted previously this month, in response to Mr Kumar’s remark that many critics said was an election gimmick.
Nitish Kumar’s shift in loyalty, meanwhile, hasn’t settled. In the Bihar assembly election, he yielded the status of senior partner in the alliance to BJP, as his party could win only 43 seats against 74 won by the JP Nadda-led outfit.
The RJD, led by 31- year-old Tejashwi Yadav in his father’s lack, became the single-largest celebration with 75 seats.
On Thursday, Mr Kumar stated that the choice on who will be the next Chief Minister will be taken by the NDA, suggesting the matter will be reviewed despite the BJP’s earlier guarantees that he would retain the post.
