Amid the decision by Nitish Kumar to snap ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Bihar and to make an alliance with the state’s grand old party RJD, Veteran leader and NCP chief Sharad Pawar Wednesday said the saffron party is trying to finish off the parties in alliance with it.

Pawar quoted a statement by BJP National President JP Nadda, who had said that regional parties don’t have any future and that only their party (BJP) will remain in the nation. He said Nitish avoided the Maharashtra-like situation in the state.
