Nitish Kumar had a bigger stature than Modi, but is dwarfed by BJP- former Bihar Speaker

New Delhi: Senior party leader and former Bihar Assembly Speaker Uday Narayan Choudhary said on Wednesday that since the Bihar CM returned to NDA, he has been dwarfed by BJP.

“My leader (Nitish) had a stature bigger than Prime Minister Narendra Modi before joining the NDA. But Nitishji has been dwarfed now, and this has demotivated party rank and file,” he said.

Chaudhary added that since Kumar joined NDA, several party workers got demotivated and resigned, reported The Indian Express.

Those local leaders who have left the party, include Baleshwar Prasad Bind, a member of JD(U)’s national council, Choudhary said on Wednesday at a meeting at Imamganj of Gaya district.

JD(U) dismissing Choudhary’s claims, said those local leaders who left the party were expelled last week for “anti-party activities”.

Whereas, Choudhary on Thursday told The Indian Express: “These five leaders, along with more than 500 JD(U) workers, have resigned from the party after today’s Imamganj meeting. The JD(U) leadership has been ignoring voices of dissent. If they had been expelled, why was there no news about their expulsion?”
