Ridiculing the Congress by calling it a sinking ship, senior RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari said that Mr Kumar’s joining won’t make any difference to the party.
Referring to the CPI turncoat’s statement that “Congress is a big ship that needs to be saved”, Mr Tiwari said, “He is just like another Navjot Singh Sidhu who will further destroy the party.”
“Kanhaiya Kumar’s induction won’t make any difference. He can’t save the party. Congress is a sinking ship and it has no future,” the RJD leader told reporters.
RJD sources said that the party is unhappy with the fact that Mr Kumar was inducted into the Congress without consulting the Tejashwi Yadav-led party.
The Congress is a part of the RJD-led opposition alliance Mahagathbandhan that fought the 2020 Bihar assembly elections against the NDA.
Bihar Congress leaders declined to comment on the matter.
