Patna, March 22 (PTI): JD(U) president Sharad Yadav today took potshots at former ally BJP over controversies surrounding L.K. Advani’s constituency and said Narendra Modi would be shown his “real” place in Varanasi.
“BJP is chanting “Har Har Modi” slogans...Varanasi revered by people owing to Lord Mahadev will show him his rightful place,” Sharad said at Patna airport on arrival from Delhi.
Debunking the BJP’s claim of a wave in its favour, the JD(U) president said the country would see the next Prime Minister from the Third Front comprising non-Congress and non-BJP parties. “Wait for the result. The country would see the next Prime Minister from the Third Front,” Sharad, an important figure behind bringing 11 non-Congress and non-BJP parties together with Left parties, said.
On bureaucrat-politician N.K. Singh switching over to the BJP, Sharad described him as an “opportunist”. He said Singh’s departure would not make any impact on the JD(U), as he had never been a true worker of the party.
Sharad, who is seeking re-election from the Madhepura constituency, left for there. He is pitted against RJD’s Pappu Yadav for the seat.
JD(U) spokesperson and MLC Sanjay Singh also made a scathing attack at N.K. Singh for switching to “Modinomics” from “Nitishnomics.”
