Katihar, Oct 4: Asserting that Bihar will see a tsunami of development if BJP-led NDA was voted to power in the state, party chief Amit Shah on Monday hit out at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar saying he was just a mascot for the "corrupt" Congress and "symbol of jungle raj" Lalu Prasad.
Shah said this while addressing a rally in Bihar's Seemanchal region, where BJP had lost during the Lok Sabha polls though it had swept the rest of the state.[Bihar Election 2015: Special Coverage]
Claiming that people of Bihar had anger for the grand alliance of JD(U)-RJD-Congress, he said, "Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a BJP-led NDA government is set to be formed. Bihar will see a tsunami of development."
Recalling the glorious ancient history of Bihar, he said an NDA government will ensure that industries are set up in the state and people do not have to migrate in search of jobs. "On one shoulder of Kumar is (RJD chief) Lalu Prasad who is a symbol of jungle raj while corrupt Congress is on his other shoulder.
He is just a mascot for them," he said.
Though the Muslim-dominated region is going to polls in the last phase on November 5, the BJP is pulling out all stops to put up a strong show here as it seen as a weak link by the party in its quest to capture power in the state where it has never ruled as the dominant partner.
Shah, who had also addressed a meeting with party workers in Muzaffarpur town, said there that the Bihar Chief Minister won't be able to bring development by carrying two allies, Congress and RJD, on his shoulders.
