New Delhi: Twitterati just can’t help themselves when an opportunity to mock netas presents itself. And the political storm in Bihar became the perfect fodder for humour. Leading the laughter this time is Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav, who described Nitish Kumar’s return to the NDA fold with a 1965 song.
ना ना करते, प्यार तुम्हीं से कर बैठेकरना था इंकार मगर इक़रार तुम्हीं से कर बैठेBihar Today— Akhilesh Yadav (@yadavakhilesh) July 27, 2017
Akhilesh’s nephew Tej Pratap is married to RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter. Lalu now finds himself out of power in the state with Nitish Kumar breaking away from the Mahagathbandhan to return to the NDA.
Nitish’s decision came after alliance partners the RJD and the Congress turned a deaf ear to demands for the resignation of Lalu’s son Tejashwi Yadav, who has been booked by the CBI for corruption.
Here’s how other Twitterati reacted to the fast-paced developments:
