Tejashwi Yadav hits back at Nitish Kumar

Tejashwi Yadav, the chief ministerial face of the Mahagathbandhan and leader of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Monday, 16 November, congratulated Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar after the latter took oath as the CM of the state for the fourth consecutive term.

"Best wishes to respected Nitish Kumarji for being 'nominated' Chief Minister. I hope, instead of pursuing his ambitions, he will fulfill aspirations of the public and the NDA's promise of 19 lakh jobs, and will make employment, health, income generation, irrigation his priority," Yadav tweeted, taking a dig at the fact that the JDU had performed below par and allowed the BJP to become the bigger party in the NDA.

Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) provided serious competition to both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), as well as the Janata Dal United (JDU), and emerged as the single-largest party in the election.

Yadav had been the talking point of the Bihar Assembly elections this year.
