Pavan Varma on humiliation face by Nitish Kumar 

When asked about how BJP humiliated JDU, the National General Secretary and National Spokesperson of the Janata Dal (United) said, “I think it was after he joined BJP in 2017 and the treatment he received from the BJP leaders subsequent to that perhaps was something that did not make him too happy. Nitish Kumar also shared this view within the party.”

When asked if he would like to share a few incidents about the said “ill-treatment” he said, “I cannot elaborate on the intent of Nitish Kumar. But, let me say that I have no desire, whatsoever, to reveal some secrets out of some prohibited book. I am saying that the leader of the party has voiced apprehensions about the principal party with which the JDU is aligned with”. 

Talking about the issue revolving around CAA, NRC and NPR, Varma further added, “I would like to mention about the second background to this as well. The CAA, NPR, NRC. The Akali Dal, the most longstanding ally of BJP came out with the pointed thing that we don’t agree with the party on the CAA, therefore we will not align. Nitish Kumar has supported the BJP on CAA but said that he will not have NRC. About NPR, it was left for further discussion. I am saying that the party which is expanding its alliance with BJP for the first-time outside Bihar should have ideological clarity on important issues.”
