Ho sakta hai BJP humare chacha(Nitish Kumar) ko last mein aakar dump kar de, aur Lok Sabha ka chunav aur Bihar ka chunav ek samay pe ho jaye, toh taiyaar rahiye: Tejashwi Yadav to party workers on RJD's foundation day event pic.twitter.com/kPR5G701EJ— ANI (@ANI) July 5, 2018
"It may happen that the BJP dumps Nitish Kumar in the end. If Lok Sabha and Bihar Assembly polls take place simultaneously, be ready," he said.
Further targeting the BJP, he said the BJP will be defeated by the RJD in the same way as it was during the recently concluded by-polls.
"Some people are trying to create a narrative here that the BJP will not be defeated until JD(U) comes back in Mahagatbandhan. They (BJP-JDU) recently lost a number of by-polls in Bihar and what happened then?" he asked. The BJP-JD(U) contested the by-polls together and lost while the RJD won.
