JD-U-RJD alliance is not going to work, Bihar needs clean-up, says UP CM

16 Jun 2017

Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath took on the JD-U-RJD government in Bihar on Thursday and said that a clean-up was warranted in the state.
Addresses a public gathering, Yogi said: "This odd marriage is not going to work. A cleaning process is going to happen in Bihar."At the same time, questioning Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, he asked: "Why did you not say anything against triple talaq. Silence of some secular leaders on the issue shows the difference between their words and actions," as per a news agency. On Thursday Nitish had urged his UP counterpart not to come 'empty handed' but implement the liqour ban and 50 percent reservation for women in local bodies.
"You (Adityanath) should take cue from us and implement liqour ban and 50 per cent reservation for women in local bodies," Kumar had told a public meeting here after laying foundations of development projects worth Rs 300 crore. Taking a dig at the much-hyped Darbhanga visit of Yogi, Kumar had said "He must be coming empty handed whereas I am here to launch various development schemes," as per news agency PTI. The Bihar chief minister had claimed that the liqour ban had become a runaway success in Bihar and had asked BJP-ruled states to follow suit.
