Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar slammed Upendra Kushwaha’s resignation from the JD-U on Tuesday, saying it was “good” that he left the party.
“When he (Kushwaha) came (into JD-U) in 2021, he assured us that he will stay for his life,” he told reporters here. Many JD-U leaders were dissatisfied with his inclusion in the party, but I allowed it. He recently began acting strangely. I’m not sure what happened to him. He should be aware.
“That man came on his own accord and will leave on his own accord. His actions would have no effect on the JD-U.”

Nitish Kumar responded to Kushwaha’s earlier statement that removing Prime Minister Narendra Modi from the Centre would be extremely difficult for opposition parties in 2024, saying, “You know better why he is saying this. No one would say such a thing. Why did he show up at my party? What was the purpose of it? If he wants publicity, I am appealing to you (the media) that it is not a publicity issue.”
When asked about BJP Bihar chief Sanjay Jaiswal’s meeting with Kushwaha, Nitish Kumar said he was unaware of it. Minister Vijay Kumar Chaudhary, who was also present, responded, “I don’t know about that meeting, but you could understand it well.”
