NEW DELHI: LJP chief Chirag Paswan on Wednesday took another swipe at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the migrants issue, saying he can’t work with those who tried to stop migrant workers from returning home during the pandemic-triggered lockdown.
Addressing party candidates through video-conference, Chirag said the Bihar CM needs to use Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s photo while his thoughts and ideas match with those of the PM. “Chirag told the
that the PM supported him like a father... He (Modi) is in his heart,” an LJP leader said.
He said Chirag has asked all the candidates to seek votes to make Bihar the best and not on the lines of caste or religion. “Our party has adopted the objective of ‘Bihar First and Bihari First’. That’s our motto and we will take the roadmap to people to seek their support,” said another LJP functionary.
Chirag, who has been in mourning since his father and LJP founder
Ram Vilas Paswan
passed away last week, has been interacting with party workers through video-conferences.
The party has constituted a 15-member election campaign committee which includes some of the recent entrants from BJP such as Rajendra Singh,
