Nitish Kumar begged Lalu Yadav forgiveness for past betrayals in 2022: Tejashwi

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Friday claimed that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar “begged for forgiveness for past betrayals” before his parents, party supremo Lalu Prasad and Rabri Devi, while trying to leave the NDA in 2022.

“Nitish ji had, after begging for forgiveness, told my parents that the BJP was trying to split his party and wean away his MLAs,” Tejashwi Yadav was quoted as saying by PTI news agency.

Nitish Kumar had snapped ties with the BJP-led NDA in August 2022 and formed an alliance with the RJD to form the government in the state. Tejashwi Yadav was sworn in as his deputy, while Nitish Kumar became the Chief Minister.

However, Kumar decided to switch sides again in January this year and took oath for a record ninth time to form an NDA government.

Tejaswhi Yadav said the RJD “made a sacrifice” when it decided to trust Nitish Kumar.

“We were initially not very inclined towards trusting him again. But there were talks with leaders across the country, all of whom were of the opinion that in the larger interest of the fight against BJP, we should agree. So we made a sacrifice,” said Tejaswhi Yadav.
