The war of words between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has resulted a campaign 'shabdwapsi' by Kumar who is asking Modi to take back his words.
In a series of tweets, Bihar's CM said that even after several pleas to Modi to retract his words, he was yet to do so. Thus, he would be launching a campaign 'shabdwapsi', where at least 50 lakh people of Bihar will join a signature campaign and send their samples to Modi for a DNA test.

Prime Minister Modi, while attacking Nitish Kumar at a rally in Muzaffarpur on July 25, had said that it seemed that there was "some problem with Nitish Kumar's DNA", referring to his constant change of political allegiance.
He also announced a "Swabhiman" or self-respect rally on August 29 at Patna's Gandhi Maidan to take the "campaign" forward.
"In its second phase in September, we will take this signature and DNA campaign to all the houses in each and every corner of Bihar and will also organise Swabhiman rallies at four to five areas of the state," he added.
Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Lalu Yadav will be addressing a press conference on Tuesday to launch the signature campaign.
