BJP is party of rumour mongers, says Nitish Kumar
PATNA: Former Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on
Sunday said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was a party of rumour mongers. “The
BJP is a party of rumour mongers,” he said at a rally ahead of a by-election in
Chapra assembly constituency in Bihar’s Saran district.
Nitish Kumar, also a senior Janata Dal-United leader,
said Narendra Modi has become the prime minister by using his “poisonous
propaganda” during and before the last Lok Sabha polls.
“Alliance of the JD-U, the Rashtriya Janata Dal and the
Congress is to check communal forces in the country and it is the only medicine
for the BJP in Bihar,” he said and added he and RJD chief Lalu Prasad came
together to check those spreading hatred and poisonous propaganda.
Addressing the rally, Lalu Prasad accused Modi of
betraying the people by not fulfilling the promises made during the election
campaigning. “We have joined hands in view of the dangerous designs of the BJP,”
Last week, Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar came together
at an election rally in Hajipur assembly constituency for the first time in two
decades. Ten assembly seats in Bihar will go for by-elections on August 21.
