How is Nitish secular all of a sudden, asks Mulayam

Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Tuesday asked how Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is claiming to have secular credentials all of a sudden.

“Who is secular? People who ran the government with the BJP’s support for 12 years? They are secular all of a sudden?” asked Yadav.

“My party has consistently opposed the BJP. Look at what is happening in Bihar,” he added.

Yadav further pointed out that many of his party workers were injured while fighting the BJP during the demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya in 1992.

The Samajwadi Party had earlier said that it would contest the Bihar elections on its own. (ANI)
