Manjhi set to meet Modi
The Janta Dal(United) has staked the claim to form the next government in Bihar under the leadership of Nitish Kumar. State party President Vashisht Narayan Singh today submitted a letter of support to Governor in this regard. He said the RJD, Congress and CPI also supported Kumar’s candidature for the next chief ministership of the state.
Singh also said he has also submitted a letter of party president Sharad Yadav in forming the governor that Manjhi had ceased to the leader of Legislature Party and his decisions should not be entertained by the Governor.
Meanwhile, JD (U) party spokesperson K.C. Tyagi said the alleged ongoing political turmoil in Bihar is due to the interference of BJP top leadership. Talking to media in New Delhi today he said BJP top leaders do not want Nitish Kumar to take over as the Chief Minister of the state. He said, JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav will submit a list of 130 MLAs to the Governor soon. He expressed hope that Mr Nitish Kumar will be called to take oath as the state’s next Chief Minister. The JD (U) leader also alleged that Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi has joined hands with the BJP and seeking the dissolve the assembly is proof in itself.
Meanwhile, Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi is set to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi this evening to discuss the political situation in the state.
