PATNA: The Janata Dal (United) has launched a digital campaign against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s DNA remark, asking him to withdraw his barb directed at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

The JD (U) in its campaign says that Prime Minister Modi has disrespected the lineage and legacy of elected leader Nitish and offended the collective sensibilities of the people of Bihar.

Expressing disappointment with the Prime Minister’s remark, the JD (U) says that the statement is unbecoming of the office which he holds.

The JD (U) further says that in a democracy when an elected leader fails to respect the popular sentiment, people are bound to respond using democratic means to convey their needs and demands.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who has been mounting pressure on Prime Minister Modi to withdraw his unwarranted remark, had earlier said that he is proud to be a 'Bihari' and added that he does not find any defect in his DNA.

"I am proud to be a Bihari. I don't have any defect in my DNA. You can get it checked if you have doubts)," he tweeted.

Nitish also urged his followers on twitter to sign a petition, asking the Prime Minister to take back his words.

"Just signed a petition asking the Modiji to #TakeBackYourWords and 'ShabdWapasi' (take back your words)," he added.

The Janata Dal (United) has rolled out its 'Shabd Wapsi' campaign as part of which DNA samples along with signatures will be sent to Prime Minister Modi, demanding that he retracts his DNA barb.
