BJP leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy presented before the media a purported video of Nitish Kumar in which the JD(U) leader was shown using “harsh” words against teachers at a public event in Samastipur. “In his eagerness to blame the centre, Nitish unknowingly accepts his failure of not being able to even get projects implemented which were supposedly approved in 2007”, former deputy CM said in a written statement.
Lambasting Kumar on his “new vision” for Bihar, Rudy said that Nitish Kumar had been in power for ten years and only now he was talking about his vision for Bihar.
“Nitish is speaking in a similar manner in which Lalu Prasad used to speak with the people of Bihar”.
“Nitish Kumar has charges filed against him in Pandarak near Barh under the Section 302, case number 131 in the year 1991”, alleged RLSP member Lalan Paswan.
“Kumar had gone to the extent of saying that if he fails to fulfil his promise, he will not ask for votes”.
Rudy also lampooned Kumar’s claim of a large crowd at the Gandhi Maidan during the “Swabhiman Rally” last Sunday.
The BJP leader also said that the day he (Nitish Kumar) joined Lalu, he lost his political credibility. “The people are experiencing a quarrelsome chief minister, who sometimes quarrel with the centre and sometimes with lieutenant governor”, Rudy said.
Training guns on the Chief Minister in particular, he cited that if Kumar was reluctant to give a report card of the state government’s performance during the erstwhile NDA government, then he must give an account of what all he did for Bihar in the past 25 months.
Earlier on Tuesday, the CM, while addressing a press conference at his residence had sought a report card on one-year performance of Narendra Modi government, saying the Bihar government issues its report card every year. He also took a dig at Nitish joining hands with Arvind Kejriwal and said people of Delhi are now “repenting’ their decision of electing a person who challenged federalism and abstained from attending Niti Ayog meetings by joining hands with Congress. People of Bihar want development and will reject the politics of caste”, he said.
