The Janata Dal-United leader Upendra Kushwaha on Sunday offered history lessons to the BJP leaders like Sushil Modi and Ravi Shankar Prasad days after Nitish Kumar returned as Bihar CM with the support of Lalu Yadav’s Rashtriya Janta Dal.

Claiming that the BJP was considered an untouchable party before 1995-96 as no political party wanted to associate themselves with them, Kushwaha said the then Samata Party George leaders George Fernandes and Nitish Kumar came to the BJP’s rescue like angels. The limits of ingratitude have been crossed and BJP leaders should recall this history from 1995-96 if there is any gratitude left in them, he said.

They attended the Mumbai session of the BJP and then formed an alliance with the Samata Party. BJP became touchable from untouchable then. Had George-Nitish not been benevolent, there would have been no trace of you today, the JDU leader wrote in a Facebook post in Hindi.

Taking a swipe at the ruling party, the JD(U) leader said that the entire country knows that when BJP is trying to change the history of the country itself, then what is the big deal if the party forget its own history

Upset over Nitish Kumar’s joining Mahagathbandhan camp after breaking alliance with the BJP in Bihar, senior BJP leaders like Sushil Modi and Ravi Shankar Prasad had stated that Kumar should be grateful to the BJP for making him union minister several times and also appointed him a CM despite having lower strength in the state assembly.
