Yashwant takes dig at Nitish for ‘change of heart’ | India News

NEW DELHI: On a day Nitish Kumar played host to opposition parties for forging a fresh anti-BJP front, former Union minister Yashwant Sinha, who was the opposition candidate against current President Droupadi Murmu, took a swipe at the Bihar CM for being a staunch ally of the Hindutva outfit until August last year.
“Only a year ago, when elections were taking place for the post of Rashtrapati, Nitish Kumar did not think it fit to even take my telephone calls. Today, he is the torch-bearer of opposition unity. Momentous 12 months for change of heart,” Sinha tweeted in a reminder of the suppleness Kumar has practised to change political formations, leaving BJP on ground of “communalism” only to return to it by citing “corruption” of RJD chief Lalu Prasad before breaking away again.Sinha left BJP citing ideological differences with PM Modi whom he had backed as a PM candidate.
