New Delhi: Soon after AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal took oath as the Chief Minister of Delhi for the third time, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Sunday said that the voters of the national capital have shown the way by opting for real nationalism.

With just a few days left for the Bihar Assembly Election 2020, Tejashwi Yadav said the electorate in Bihar should emulate the administrative style of Kejriwal and will vote out Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who has no qualms in taking off his secular veil on issues such as the CAA.

Ahead of his ‘Berozgari Hatao Yatra’ starting on February 23 with a massive rally in Patna, Tejashwi Yadav said the ‘mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) is ready to take on the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) against its divisive agenda and 15 years of misrule in the assembly polls.

“Nitish Kumar has never criticised the CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act), NPR (National Population Register) and the NRC (National Register for Citizens). He didn’t utter even a single word on the recent reservation issue. He doesn’t have any courage to criticise any of the BJP’s policies,” Tejashwi Yadav said.
Calling Nitish Kumar a cunning politician, Tejashwi Yadav said he knows that once the BJP makes NRC an Act, he can do nothing but comply. “Then he will cry over his helplessness in light of constitutional norms. His party could have made a difference during voting for the CAB in Parliament, but there he exhibited his true communal character,” Tejashwi Yadav added.
He added that the main intention of the CAA, NPR and the NRC is for dividing and polarising the nation on religious lines for political gains and Kumar has no qualms in shunning his secular veil to show his true colours.
Saying that the message of Delhi polls victory by the Aam Aadmi Party was loud and clear, Yadav said if a government works for necessary amenities and social and financial security, then no diversion will work in any state.
