“Now the situation is such that if someone speaks about ideology then he is made fun,” he added.
Commenting on the massive mandate received by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Nitish congratulated the saffron party and wished it luck for the future endeavors.
“The dreams shown to the youth...the promises made, if indeed ‘achchey din are’ here, then our best wishes that they come true,” said Nitish.
When quizzed about the reason behind the party’s poor performance in the Lok Sabha elections Nitish said the JD (U) vouched for votes on the basis of issues concerning the state but it did not go in its favour.
“The campaign in this election was about personality politics, we tried to ask votes on issues. But we did not get the votes,” Nitish said.
“Communal polarisation took place in Bihar during the campaigning,” he added.
To a poser on whether he regrets breaking-up ties with the BJP, an adamant Nitish said, “Split from the BJP was a decision based on principles and was absolutely correct.”
“I have resigned taking responsibility of the loss,” Nitish told the media post tendering his resignation.
