Union minister and LJP president Ramvilas Paswan today hailed Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar for leaving “poison” and drinking “nectar” which would take the state to greater heights of development. “Nitish Kumar took a commendable decision to leave poison and drink nectar,” Paswan told reporters here. The union food minister was referring to Kumar’s decision to quit the Grand Alliance of RJD, JD(U) and Congress over the issue of graft and join hands with NDA to form a government in Bihar.

Paswan, whose Lok Janshakti Party is a constituent of BJP led NDA, said, “We will make a clean sweep in Bihar in 2019 general election and Lalu Prasad and his associates would draw a blank.” With NDA government both at the Centre and Bihar, the pace of development would accelerate, he said. Paswan challenged RJD chief Lalu Prasad to prove his charge that he (Paswan) accumulated wealth worth crores of rupees and said it Prasad could do it, he would take retirement from politics.
