The Kerala unit of the Janata Dal (United) has decided not to be a part of the party in protest against Bihar chief minister, Nitish Kumar’s decision to split from the mahagathbandhan and join hands with the National Democratic Alliance(NDA).
Veerandra Kumar, party’s state president and Rajya Sabha MP announced the decision at a news conference.
“I appeal to Sharad Yadav and all MPs of the JD-(U) to fight back for the minorities, Dalits, oppressed caste. Now our resolution has been thrown in the dustbin. I called upon Sharad Yadav to stand up and say I won’t accept it” he said after a meeting with Sharad Yadav.
Lamenting at the issue, the MP added, “Government interference is becoming shocking”.
He added that he will go back and call a party council to chalk out the party’s future. He said, “I will resign if I have to. But I will fight against these racist powers”.
This decision came after Nitish Kumar was sworn in as the chief minister of Bihar with BJP leader Sushil Modi being sworn in as the deputy chief minister. He will now form the new government of Bihar with the support of BJP.
Nitish had resigned as Bihar CM on Wednesday and broke away from the Grand Alliance with RJD.
