Nitish joined hands with communal forces for personal politics: Rahul Gandhi
Rahul Gandhi's criticism came shortly after Kumar took oath of office as chief minister again in Bihar with BJP support.
New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday charged Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar with throwing rules to the wind to opt to join communal forces to pursue his brand of "personal" politics.
Gandhi said a mandate was given to Kumar to counter anti-communal forces in Bihar, but he has joined hands with the latter for his personal politics.
"A mandate was given to Nitish ji for the anti-communal fight, but now he has joined hands with them for his personal politics. If I tell you the truth, we knew about this planning for the past three to four months. For one's self interest, people can do anything, there is no credibility, no rules," he added.
Rahul's criticism came shortly after Kumar took oath of office as chief minister. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushil Modi also took oath as Bihar's Deputy Chief Minister.
With this, the political uncertainty in Bihar that loomed in on Wednesday after Kumar's resignation has ended for the time being. (ANI)
