Mr. Yadav made the remark in the backdrop of the assembly elections result in three states- Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh- where BJP lost to Congress, an ally in the RJD-led grand alliance in Bihar.
He continued, “Just after switching sides to the NDA, Nitish Kumar had said that nobody has the potential to challenge Modi.”
“With all humility, I want to ask Nitish Kumar as what is your take on this (the statement) now. Are you contemplating to take a u-turn again after talking to your conscience? Aren’t you Chacha-Ji (uncle)?,” said Mr. Yadav adding that the opposition leader in Bihar, wrote on Twitter.
Mr. Kumar had dumped the Congress and RJD to rejoin the BJP-led NDA in 2017.
After breaking ties, the Bihar Chief Minister said that “now nobody has the potential to pose a challenge to PM Modi.”
