In the immediate aftermath of the Karnataka Governor inviting BS Yeddyurappa to form a government in the state and giving him 15 days to prove his strength on the floor of the house, former Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav has called for the Nitish Kumar government in Bihar to be dismissed as it is a post-poll alliance.
Taking to Twitter, Tejashwi, son of two former Bihar chief ministers Lalu Prasad and Rabri Devi, has spoken about how the JD(U)-RJD government that had come into power after trouncing the BJP in 2015 was taken down when Nitish Kumar broke the Mahagathnbandhan and struck up an alliance with the BJP.
In the 2015 Bihar election, the Lalu Prasad-led RJD had emerged as the biggest party while the JD(U) was the second biggest, followed by the BJP. Similarly, in Karnataka, the BJP is the biggest party, the Congress second biggest followed by the JD(S).
Alongside the call for the Nitish Kumar government to be dismissed, Tejashwi has also called for all Opposition leaders to stage a combined protest in Bengaluru against Yeddyurappa being invited.
