"This (efforts for a federal front) has increased pulse of 'hawabazzs' (gossipers)," Nitish said, in an apparent dig at the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate who had earlier said that a third front should see which way the wind is blowing and the BJP would form the government after the Lok Sabha elections.
Without naming Narendra Modi, Nitish Kumar claimed, "One senior leader in his speech at Kolkata yesterday appeared totally rattled by formation of the new front.”
Claiming that the new grouping would provide a true alternative to the Congress-led UPA, he said, "The first step toward forming a federal front has been taken successfully."
The Bihar CM was referring to meeting of 11 non-Congress and non-BJP parties in Delhi to form a separate block in Parliament with him behind the exercise.
Stating that hot air would not work, Nitish said that in the presence of JD-U president Sharad Yadav, ‘UPA and NDA will crumble like a pack of cards’.
Asserting that 'Delhi only worships one who has strength', Nitish urged the people to strengthen JD-U so that nobody could dare to ignore the demand for special status for the state.
Sharad Yadav, who had earlier attended the meeting of non-BJP and non-Congress parties in the national capital, expressed confidence that the federal front comprising of Left parties, SP, AIADMK, JDS, JD-U, BJD, Jharkhand Vikas Manch and AGP among others would form government at the Centre after the Lok Sabha elections.
