Nitish Kumar Snubs Party MLA

'Can't make everyone a minister all the time': Nitish Kumar Snubs' MLA Party

Nitish Kumar recently formed a new government with RJD and Congress after dumping BJP.


Bihar Minister Nitish Kumar reacted angrily after a senior lawmaker from his JDU party, Bima Bharti, said she was sad not to be minister while her party colleague, Leshi Singh, did not. join the cabinet.

“I cannot make everyone a minister all the time, stressing that Bima Bharti has also been a minister twice,” Mr. Kumar said. “This behavior is not done. The party will talk to her (Ms. Bharti) calmly. If she understands, fine. Or if she has been thinking of going around, she can consider that.”

Bima Bharti has threatened to resign if Ms. Singh remains as minister. “I’m just sad to Leshi Singh that she is always chosen. What does CM see in her? She is constantly involved in incidents in her area; brings bad reputation to the party. Why can’t I get it? listen? Is it because I come from a backward class?” she said.


JDU MLA Bima Bharti speaks to the media in Patna.

“If Leshi Singh is not removed, I will resign from the party. If my accusations against her are false, then I will resign as an MLA,” Ms. Bharti added.

But Nitish Kumar doesn’t have that. “She (Leshi Singh) also served as a minister in 2013, 2014, 2019. There was nothing like that (allegations) against her then. It was all nonsense,” he told reporters in Patna, speaking in Hindi.

Leshi Singh, who has the Department of Food and Consumer Protection, did not respond.

On Ms. Bharti’s side, the minister said: “We also made her a minister twice. When she couldn’t even read properly, we taught her that and kept her going. I was amazed. of the way she spoke. We gave her a lot. of respect.”

He says he asked Ms Bharti to meet him yesterday. “She told my office that there was no need for a meeting. That’s why I had to make this statement today.”

This is the second controversy since Nitish Kumar abandoned the BJP and revived his alliance with Lalu Yadav’s RJD and Parliament to form a new government earlier this month.

Thirty-one ministers were sworn in on Tuesday, adding to his Minister and Deputy, Tejashwi Yadav. The three berths remain unfilled as the state can have 36 ministers by regulation.

Among those sworn in, questions have been raised about RJD’s Kartkeya Singh, who faces a kidnapping case.
