The major talking point at Nitish’s swearing-in was Delhi’s anti-corruption Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hugging former Bihar CM and fodder scam-tainted Lalu Prasad Yadav.
On Friday, Nitish Kumar’s swearing in ceremony was the talk of the town as anyone remotely opposed to the leading party at the centre was attending his fifth swearing-in. The list included Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, former PM HD Deve Gowda, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal among others.
However, the major talking point of the swearing-in ceremony was Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hugging former Bihar CM Lalu Prasad Yadav. Given Kejriwal’s stance as an anti-corruption crusader and Lalu’s alleged involvement in the fodder scam, social media users were quick to mock Kejriwal’s apparent U-turn.
