Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Yogi Adityanath, on his maiden trip to Bihar since becoming the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh nearly three months ago, ripped the 'unholy' alliance between Nitish Kumar's Janata Dal – U and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav in Bihar saying the 'marriage between the two was unnatural' and would not last long.

Speaking from behind a bullet-proof podium in Darbhanga on Thursday, the UP CM said that the Nitish-Lalu pair reminded him of a couplet by Sant Kabir that essentially meant a good person could not live with an evil person for too long.

"Sooner or later there is bound to have problems between a good person and a bad person. Bihar's so-called Grand Alliance is based on shaky grounds and will not last forever," he said.

Like a true saffron leader, Yogi, ignoring other pressing issues like education and healthcare debacle in the state, shifted his focus on cow slaughtering saying if Nitish Kumar had the guts, he would ban illegal slaughter of cows in Bihar just as he did within days of coming into power in UP.

Ignoring Kumar's taunt not to visit Bihar unless he was coming with something for the state, the BJP leader said that he would continue to visit Bihar until the current Lalu-Nitish-Congress was defeated at the ballot boxes and a clean, hard-working BJP government was installed in the state.

"I will keep coming to Bihar until 2020 and visit all districts to apprise the people how they had been defrauded and taken for a ride by this 'marriage of convenience' alliance made up of the JD-U, RJD, and Congress. Only then Bihar will start moving on the path of development," Adityanath said.

BJP state President Nityanand Rai and other local BJP functionaries were present on the occasion.
