After being suspended from the party for attending opposition's meeting, JD(U) leader Ali Anwar, on Saturday, attacked Nitish Kumar saying that history will not forgive him for going against the mandate of the people of Bihar.

Accusing the Bihar Chief Minister of sacrificing the nation for his government, Anwar told a media outlet, “You (Nitish Kumar) sacrificed the nation to stay in power. History will not forgive. We will go across the country and tell people about what has happened.”

Justifying his actions for going against the party to attend the opposition's meeting organised by Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Anwar said he was just following people’s mandate.

He said, “Nitish Kumar went against the mandate. We are still following the mandate of the people, which was in the favour of the grand alliance.”

“The ones who changed the mandate should be questioned,” he added.

Praising the rebellious Sharad Yadav, who has taken the JD(U) head on, for abandoning the grand alliance and joining the BJP, Anwar said leaders like Sharad Yadav and himself have listened to their conscience and that any sacrifice for truth is worth taking.

He said, “The common man is with us. There is restlessness in the entire country due to the economic and social policies and political style of the Government at the Centre and now in Bihar as well. Somebody will have to break it. Someone like Sharad Yadav or Ali Anwar will have to come forward to break it. We have faith that not only people of Bihar but of the entire country is with us.”

JD(U) leader Ali Anwar was suspended from the party after he attended an Opposition meeting called by the Congress National President Sonia Gandhi.

Suspending the leader, JD(U) General Secretary KC Tyagi had said, “MP Ali Anwar stands suspended from JD(U)’s parliamentary party after he participated in the Opposition parties’ meeting. This was against the party.”

The Congress had called a joint opposition meeting in order to discuss unity and plan future strategy to take on NDA.
