RJD to boycott Nitish Kumar’s swearing-in ceremony, says mandate against NDA

The Rashtriya Janata Dal issued a statement on Monday and said it will boycott the oath taking ceremony of Chief Minister-designate Nitish Kumar for the fourth consecutive term as the mandate for change was not in favour of the NDA this time.

The RJD in a statement said the people’s verdict has been changed by the ruler’s order. Ask the farmers, unemployed, contract workers, employed teachers of Bihar what is going on in them. The people of Bihar are angered by the fraud of the NDA. We are the people’s representatives and stand with the public.

Tejashwi Yadav led Rashtriya Janata Dal emerged as a single largest party with 75 seats, followed by the BJP securing 74 seats. While the JD(U) finishing at third spot could only clich 43 assembly seats. The JD(U)-BJP alliance won a majority of  125 seats out of 243 member state assembly.

The RJD also claimed that the state is getting a helpless government by the two helpless parties. Bihar will again get a Chief Minister who has been proven corrupt and weak. The ruling alliance has two reasons to worry, first, people’s support for the RJD and second, Tejashwi Yadav being elected as Bihar’s most popular leader.

Meanwhile, BJP’s Giriraj Singh slammed RJD for its tweet and said the people have given the mandate to NDA in Bihar.
