Patna: In retaliation to the attacked by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the quota issue, Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar hit back accusing PM Narendra Modi of brazenly using “divisive language” and warned that he may “lose” India in his “desperation” to win the “losing battle” of Bihar in his statement on October 30, 2015.
Expressing his astonishment, CM Nitish Kumar is alleged to have said that “I am astonished at Modiji’s brazen use of divisive language. In his desperation to win the losing battle of Bihar, I am afraid he might lose India,” Nitish Kumar is believed to have mentioned in a tweet.
Though Nitish Kumar did not elaborate, his response came soon after PM Modi launched a stinging attack on him in his two rallies in which he said that the Janata Dal (United) leader in a speech in Parliament on August 24, 2005 had spoken about giving quota to a particular community, a reference to Muslims.
“Nitish had made his intentions clear way back on August 24, 2005. They lost cool when I alleged that they want to steal away 5 per cent of reservation from the quota given to SCs/STs/OBCs and EBCs and give to a particular community,” PM Modi said today at an election rally in Gopalganj.
