Posted by: Pradeep Singh

On Nitish Kumar-led JD(U) joining NDA, Congress leader Pawan Khera told ANI, "Someone who has to leave has to say something or the other. It is not easy to live with one's conscience after taking such a step. If you are doing this for the 9th time, the conscience probably left you long back. He can say whatever he wants...Nitish Kumar could have had his name registered in history in a good manner but think about what situation he has brought himself in. He is becoming a subject of mockery in every household.  Now, it is his desire if he wants to be a subject of mockery."

Posted by: Pradeep Singh
