New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma on Thursday attacked Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for joining hands with the BJP, saying he was always a political opportunist.

Kumar, 66, had resigned on Wednesday as chief minister to break ranks with his allies--Lalu Yadav's RJD party and the Congress and formed a new coalition with the BJP.

And a little more than 12 hours, he was back in the office after being sworn in by Bihar Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi with the support of the BJP.

"Nitish has always been a political opportunist. This alliance is sans principles and is an opportunistic coalition," Sharma told reporters here.

He also asked whether Kumar was not aware of the charges against Yadav when the grand alliance was formed between Janata Dal (United), RJD and Congress.

"The excuse they are making will not work. Nitish has completely been exposed and nobody will be able to trust him anymore," the Congress leader said.

After Narendra Modi had come to power at the Centre, Sharma said Kumar had called for bringing together opposition parties for a RSS-free nation.

"It is important to remember that Modi had commented on the political DNA of Kumar and Nitish had sent hair samples of the people of Bihar to Modi's residence (in response to it)," he said, adding both should remember what they had said to each other.
