Swamy said that Nitish Kumar has to win the 2020 assembly elections, he has to be in the role of a younger brother with BJP. If the JDU contests alone, its position will become extremely weak. He said that "BJP is growing in the whole country. In Bengal, we are just a few miles away from becoming number one. Not only this, our party is number one in many states. Bihar is an old fortress".
Swamy, known for his harsh remarks, said that "Nitish Kumar should find out why the BJP leaders are angry. He also endorsed Giriraj Singh's remark that he was a forthright leader. Along with this, he also targeted Nitish on the failure of the government regarding the floods in Patna".
