Congress leader Jairam labels Nitish Kumar “expert in betraying”

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Sunday criticised Nitish Kumar’s recent volte-face, branding him as an “expert in betraying”, and emphasised the irony of his decision to join the BJP-led NDA camp after being instrumental in conceptualizing the opposition bloc INDIA.

Kumar on Sunday resigned as the Chief Minister of Bihar, saying “things were not working well” for him in the Mahagathbandhan he had joined less than 18 months ago and the opposition bloc INDIA.

Ramesh remarked that Kumar’s tendency to change political colors rivals that of chameleons and suggested that the political upheaval in Bihar is a tactic to divert attention from the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, scheduled to enter Bihar on Monday.
