I will oppose Nitish Kumar led 'Grand Alliance' in upcoming Bihar polls: Pappu Yadav

Expelled Rashtriya Janta Dal MP Pappu Yadav today said he will fiercely oppose Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar led 'Grand Alliance' in upcoming legislative polls, although didn’t rule out the possibility of going with third front in alliance with Samajwadi Party and Nationalist Congress Party.

Addressing mediapersons at his residence, Mr Yadav said the parliamentary board of his Jan Adikhar Party will meet tomorrow in Patna to decide the next course of action to save Bihar from RJD chief Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar, terming the duo as 'betrayers' of Muslims and Dalits.

“I challenge Nitish Kumar to face me in open debate at Gandhi Maidan (ground). Nitish Kumar has failed on every front, whether it is crime, corruption or economic front. He just favoured goons of RJD and made them MLAs. His Muslim love is also bogus. He and Lalu ji has always used Muslims for political gains. Both have deceived Muslims,” Mr Yadav said.

He also accused RJD-JDU of harbouring and saving criminals behind several infamous caste massacres of Bihar. Mr Yadav, who was very critical of grand alliance, also hinted his inclination towards third front. “SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and NCP MP Tariq Anwar are our elders and very respectable leaders. How can Lalu ji say that Mulayam Ji has taken money from BJP to break off from grand alliance when he himself is facing so many cases of financial irregularities?" Mr Yadav alleged.

He said he found nothing objectionable if Asaduddin Owaisi-led AIMIM contested the polls, adding that the party had fought elections earlier also in many other states including Maharashtra.
