Union Minister and LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan today welcomed Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar's decision of supporting the Centre's demonetisation move and dared RJD and Congress to come out of the grand alliance government if they have problem with it.
"The Chief Minister has shown courage in supporting the Central government's drive against black money. Nitish Kumar has done a commendable job by supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's demonetisation move. I thank him for supporting the Centre's decision," he told PTI.
"If the RJD and Congress have problems with Nitish Kumar, the man who is leading the coalition government of three parties, and praising the Centre on demonetisation, then they should come out of the coalition government," the Union Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister said.
All progressive thinking and honest people are supporting the Centre's demonetisation move and they will not forgive those who are opposing it, Paswan said.
"Both RJD and Congress are trying to run with the hare and hunt with hound. On the one hand, they are not in agreement with Kumar on the issue while on the other hand, both parties are very much part of the ruling alliance led by him," he said.
