Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav on Friday said that his state has shown the way forward to the country.
He was referring to the recent political developments in Bihar as Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar severed ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party and joined the Rashtriya Janata Dal-led Grand Alliance of seven parties on August 9.
Kumar took oath as chief minister of the new government on August 10, and Yadav was sworn in as his deputy.
Janata Dal (United) is the third major ally of the BJP to have snapped ties with it in the last three years. The Shiromani Akali Dal quit the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance over the three farm laws last year, and the Shiv Sena allied with the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress in 2019.
On Friday, Yadav made the comment about Bihar after meeting Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Sitaram Yechury and Communist Party of India’s D Raja in New Delhi.
