Day after his cry for ‘RSS-free India’, BJP says Nitish’s dream of becoming PM will never be a reality
PATNA: Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi today said Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar’s dream of becoming the Prime Minister would never be the reality.
“His dream of becoming the PM will never be a reality,” Modi told a Press conference in Patna.
Taking potshots at Kumar, Modi said the Bihar chief minister had nursed the dream of grabbing country’s top job by riding on the sinking boat of the Congress.
“Today, the Congress is not in power in any major states except Karnataka while it will very soon be out of power in Kerala and Assam after the assembly elections being held there,” he observed.
Modi launched his attacks on Kumar hours after the latter gave a call of “Sangh-Mukt Bharat” (RSS-free India) and asked the anti-BJP parties to come on a common platform.
“Uniting against the BJP and its divisive ideology is the only way to save democracy,” Kumar who last week was elected the president of the JD-U told a function in Patna yesterday, inviting bitter reactions from the BJP.
Another senior BJP leader and party spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain too reacted bitterly to Kumar’s idea of “RSS-free India”.
“He is living in fool’s paradise. The fact is that anybody or party which ever talked about ‘RSS or BJP-free India” themselves got destroyed,” he quipped.
Kumar has suddenly stepped up attacks on the BJP soon after taking over as the new president of the JD-U which is in power only in Bihar, and is trying hard to from a bigger alliance against the BJP with what his adversaries say “an eye on the PM’s chair”.
