PATNA: The ongoing verbal duel between Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and his arch-rival, RJD chief Lalu Prasad continued for the third consecutive day on Thursday.
Both the leaders took to Twitter to launch subtle attacks on each other with the “choice of words” amply telling the level of hostility.
Today again, it was the chief minister who initiated the debate by raking up the issue of corruption without naming his rival in his tweet.
“For him, corruption is good manner and action against graft just unethical,” tweeted Kumar in Hindi, showing highest level of brevity. The tweet obliquely referred to the RJD president who faces multiple corruption charges.
भ्रष्टाचार शिष्टाचार है।
उसके खिलाफ कार्रवाई अनाचार है !!

Prasad wasted no time in returning the fire in similar fashion. This time, the RJD president came out with a cinquain to spit fire at his rival in his inimitable style.
Through his tweet, Prasad asked the masses to tell him the name of the person “who deposited a fine of Rs20,000 in plagiarism case, sought to cover up the murder case pending against him, has a string of scams taking place under his nose and who boasts of his fake image and morality in public”.
थेसिस की चोरी में भरा 20 हजार जुर्माना
हत्या आरोप की फाइल ताकत से दबवाना
चालीस घोटाला अपनी नाक तले करवाना
नैतिकता व फर्ज़ी छवि का ढिंढोरा पिटवाना
लालू पूछ रहा हैं उसका नाम जरा बतलाना
