Varanasi: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday said his Janata Dal-United (JD-U) will expand in Uttar Pradesh and that the BJP can be defeated in other states too.
“When they (BJP) can be defeated in Bihar, they can be defeated in other states too,” Nitish Kumar told a rally in Pindra area of Varanasi, the Lok Sabha constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“We want a Sangh-(RSS) free country and a liquor-free society,” he added.
He targeted the Bharatiya Janata Party for making fun of the Grand Alliance which the JD-U, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress formed in Bihar.
“When we joined hands last year, they (BJP) mocked at us. But the people of Bihar taught them a good lesson (in the assembly election).”
Nitish Kumar urged people in states which will see assembly elections to choose wisely as all promises made by the BJP remained unfulfilled even two years after Modi took office.
He said the JD-U was “planning to spread ourselves in UP in a big way and make party members here”. Uttar Pradesh will see assembly elections next year.
