NEW DELHI: Newly elected MP Devesh Chandra Thakur from Bihar’s Janata Dal (United) led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has caused controversy. MP Devesh Chandra Thakur said he wouldn’t help Muslims & Yadavs because they didn’t vote for him in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.

Misa Bharti of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) responded to Janata Dal (United) leader Devesh Chandra Thakur’s comment about Yadavs & Muslims, Misa Bharti questioned the message behind his words.

“Why did he say that? He won the elections & now has a chance to represent his constituency. What is he trying to communicate with such statements?” Misa Bharti, the Lok Sabha member-elect from Bihar’s Patliputra seat & daughter of RJD supremo & ex-Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, said.

Misa Bharti targets the ‘sabka saath, sabka vishwas’ (together for all, development for all) slogan of PM Narendra Modi. Misa Bharti also pointed out that Prime Minister Narendra Modi advocates for ‘unity & trust for all.’ So, why do his MPs make such comments?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) & the Janata Dal (United) led by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar are political allies.

“Why is he saying that & for what purpose? The people of Sitamarhi will need to understand this. They elected their leader to promote regional progress. Why (Thakur) is making that type of statement that could divide the people of his region?” Misa Bharti questioned.

Recently, Devesh Chandra Thakur won the Sitamarhi constituency in the recently held Lok Sabha Polls, he mentioned that the Muslim & Yadav communities, who typically support the RJD and are core voters of the RJD also. But they did not vote for him.

“A Muslim Person approached me for help, & I asked if they voted for the RJD. They said yes, mentioning the RJD’s symbol. I told him to have tea, and sweets and leave and then I wouldn’t do his work They (Muslims and the Yadav) community, who usually support us, didn’t vote for our party because they saw our party was associated with the symbol with Narendra Modi face. Despite my past help to these communities, they didn’t vote for us this time.
