Lok Sabha Results 2024 | Nitish Kumar lashes out at INDIA bloc, claims they never worked for country

Lok Sabha Results 2024 | Days after the Lok Sabha election results, Janata Dal-United (JDU) Chief Nitish Kumar lashed out at the INDIA opposition bloc on Friday, asserting that they never contributed to the nation's progress. 

Speaking at the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) parliamentary meeting in the national capital, Kumar expressed his belief that the country will advance under Prime Minister Modi's leadership.


Nitish Kumar said, "Agli baar jab aap aaiye toh kuch log jo idhar udhar jeet gaya hai, agli baar sab haarega. Humko poora bharosa hai (Those who have won this time will lose the next elections. I'm confident about it). They never worked for the nation. They never served the country. The country will progress under your (PM Modi) leadership.”

Prime Minister Modi and other leaders at the meeting couldn't stop laughing at the remark made by Kumar, a key founder-member of the INDIA bloc in 2023, who had switched sides to the BJP.

Affirming his support towards PM Narendra Modi, the JDU chief said, "All the pending works of Bihar will be done. It is a very good thing that all of us have come together and we will all work together with you (PM Modi). You will be swearing in as the Prime Minister on Sunday, but I wanted you to do it today itself. Whenever you take the oath, we will be with you...We will all work together under your leadership..."


Kumar has also backed the proposal of naming Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister.

According to the results announced by the Election Commission of India on Tuesday, the BJP secured 240 seats and, along with its allies, holds a total of 293 seats. Chandrababu Naidu's TDP and Nitish Kumar's JDU, which won 16 and 12 seats respectively in their states, have extended their support to the NDA. 

On Wednesday, leaders of the NDA parties met and elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi as their leader. PM Modi later stated that the NDA will work towards building a developed India. 

The INDIA bloc has 234 MPs in the new parliament, with the Congress winning 99 seats.
