Suspended Janata Dal (United) leader Ali Anwar on Saturday said that history will not forgive Bihar chief minister, Nitish Kumar for going against the mandate of the people of Bihar, which was in favour of the mahagathbandhan.
He also accused Nitish of sacrificing the country for saving his government.
“You (Nitish Kumar) sacrificed the nation to stay in power. History will not forgive. We will go across the country and tell people about what has happened,” Anwar said to ANI.
The suspended JD(U) leader added that he is still following the people’s mandate.
“Nitish Kumar went against the mandate. We are still following the mandate of the people, which was in the favour of the grand alliance,” he said.
“The ones who changed the mandate should be questioned,” Anwar added.
Anwar said that leaders like him and Sharad Yadav have listened to their conscience and that any sort of sacrifice for the truth will be less. He also said that whatever happened is a ‘political mishap’.
“The common man is with us. There is a restlessness in the entire country due to the economic and social policies and political style of the Government at the Centre and now in Bihar as well. Somebody will have to break it. Someone like Sharad Yadav or Ali Anwar will have to come forward to break it. We have faith that not only people of Bihar but of the entire country is with us,” he said.
Anwar was suspended from the JD (U) parliamentary party for attending the Opposition meeting called by Congress president, Sonia Gandhi.
