Must be a matter of worry for BJP as allies dumping NDA, Bihar Dy CM Tejashwi Yadav warns | Patna News

PATNA: Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav on Saturday mounted heavy attacks on BJP president JP Nadda two days after he told a crowd in Patna that the “regional parties are destined to be wiped out.”
Hitting back at the BJP, Tejashwi said the BJP itself faces the prospect of getting eliminated since its allies are fast dumping the NDA.
“It appears the BJP itself is coming to an end since the regional parties which joined as their allies earlier are quitting the NDA slowly and steadily. Right now, its biggest ally in south India (Tamil Nadu) has dumped the BJP,” Tejashwi told the media on Saturday.
He was in fact referring to the AIADMK which on September 25 announced to break alliance with the BJP and withdraw from the NDA. Prior to it, the JD(U), Shiv Sena and Shiromani Akali Dal too had walked out of the NDA.
“Who is with them now? Neither the masses nor the allies,” Tejashwi said, describing Nadad’s statement as “non-sense”.
“The Centre exists because of the state. Regional parties raise the issues of their state with prominence. Do PM Narendra Modi and JP Nadda know more about Bihar than us? They talk rubbish,” Dy CM added.
Nadda has come under fire right since he, while addressing a function organised to mark the birth centenary celebrations of party’s patriarch Kailashpati Mishra here on Thursday, said the regional parties promoting family rule and neck-deep in corruption will be eliminated soon. His move has drawn protests from the regional parties.
A similar statement made by Nadda on July 31 last year had led to the abrupt fall of the ruling NDA government in the state when the JD(U) broke alliance with the BJP to form its own government with the support of RJD, Congress and other Grand Alliance partners.
