Nitish in dilemma as Lalu wants him to join RJD protest rally over demonetisation


PATNA: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar seems to be in a dilemma now as RJD chief Lalu Prasad has planned to invite him to joint his party’s protest over notes ban.

Kumar who heads the JD-U has strongly supported the demonetization drive launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi but the RJD now wants him to oppose the Centre’s move.

“The RJD will hold a massive agitation against the currency ban. I will also invite the chief minister to join it,” Prasad told a TV News channel in Patna today. The RJD is scheduled to hold a massive “dharna” on December 28 over the issue.

He though added, “Kumar is the chief minister. I can’t dictate him”.

He said the RJD was eagerly waiting JD-U’s proposed review of note ban on completion of 50 days.

Kumar’s JD-U is only the second opposition party after Biju Janata Dal (BJD) which has whole-heartedly backed the currency ban but now the party looks under pressure to reverse its stand given the prevailing resentment among the general masses over the issue.
