Amit Shah, BJP President, called Nitish Kumar, the Chief Minister of Bihar, as a ‘backstabber’ and accused him of breaking ties, which Shah said was in line with Nitish’s deceit habit to grab power.
According to Shah, BIP gave leadership role to Kumar in the NDA. Besides, he was also assisted all through "even at the cost of insult to BJP workers" to prevent jungle raj's return to Bihar.
"Nitish Kumar betrayed George Fernandes, who gave him (Kumar) a national identity, and more recently, Jitan Ram Manjhi. Where is George Fernandes today? He has been forced to spend 'gumnaami ki zindagi' (a life of obscurity)?" Amit Shah said.
"But, in tune with his behaviour he stabbed BJP in the back and joined hands with Lalu Prasad for the sake of power," Shah added calling BJP workers to spread the truth amid voters.
Targeting RJD chief Lalu Prasad, Shah said, "Lalu Prasad is nowadays talking about reservation for backwards and dalits and accusing the BJP of intending to end reservation which is not true. BJP has been in favour of reservation for backwards and dalits since the promulgation of Constitution and is not in favour of any review.” Prasad was accused by the BJP chief over harping on the issue just to deviate voter’s attention from the jungle raj’s issue.
According to Shah, a great importance was attached by the Modi government to national security and will not be compromised any time. The BJP chief was addressing a conference of BJP workers at Begusarai that is nearly 100km away from the state capital.
"Rahul Baba - no one now dares to buthcher our soldiers. If anybody engages in a misadventure, we enter Burma's borders and our forces take them out, that's what Narendra Modi's government is all about," said BJP chief, who recently launched his own website.
