Nitish govt is 'hopeless', says Ravi Shankar Prasad
Patna: Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the JD(U) government led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was a "hopeless one".
"This Nitish Kumar government is a hopeless one. The state is suffering from an increase in crime and corruption," Prasad told reporters here on Sunday.
Union Telecom and IT Minister said that Kumar was chosen the Chief Ministerial candidate of the JD(U)-RJD alliance because RJD chief Lalu Prasad cannot become a CM due to his conviction for five years by a CBI court in the fodder scam case.
"Neither his (lalu's) family members are ready for the post," he said.
"This is the truth behind the utterances of Laluji that he drank poison to nominate Kumar as the Chief Ministerial candidate," he added.
The Union Minister added that the public of the state will vote for NDA in the coming assembly elections to ensure a change in the state.
