PATNA: Hitting out at BJP, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today accused the saffron party leaders of using foul language against their rivals deliberately.
"BJP's new name is Bhartiya Jumla Party," Kumar said in a snide remark on the saffron party while addressing a function of JD(U) youth wing here.
"BJP's Jumla-famed president is coming to Bihar. He is not coming here to give something to Bihar but to teach yoga," he said in a dig at him.
"He (Shah) is expected to further bring bad culture into Bihar," Nitish alleged.
In an apparent reference to comments of the BJP MP from Buxar, Ashwini Choubey, against Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, himself and RJD chief Lalu Prasad, Kumar said this stemmed from the nervousness of the saffron party's
leaders over tie-up of secular forces.
"This is not a case of slip of tongue but such foul language was used after a deep thought," he said referring to utterances of Choubey at Nawada on Thursday night
Reminding youths about Prime Minister Narendra Modi coming to power by "selling dreams" to them, Kumar accused him of reneging on all poll promises.
"Narendra Modi had promised to bring back black money into country out of which every poor would get Rs 15-20 lakh... to farmers he had promised to add 50 per cent profit above input cost while deciding MSP (minimum support price) and had sold
dream to youths that they would easily get jobs of Rs 3-4 lakh easily," he said.
"But, after coming to power, instead of approving newer employment opportunities, only two thousand people would get jobs in Bihar," he said, adding, "Can there be a bigger lie than this?"
