Patna, Aug 7: As the assembly elections are few months away, political blame-game has started in Bihar, after the state Chief Minister Nitish Kumar recently wrote an open letter to PM Narendra Modi over his comments on DNA.
Now, the prominent Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader from Bihar, Girriraj Singh, who is an MLA from Nawada, broke his silence in an open letter addressing to Bihar people.
In an open letter to all the people of Bihar, on Friday, Aug 7, Singh quoted Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav about their war of words when they were against each other.
Singh also mentioned that for the BJP, Bihar is more important rather than being in power. [Bihar Assembly Polls 2010]
It must be noted that in 2010 assembly elections, the BJP had won 91 seats and JD(U) had won 115 seats. The NDA alliance of BJP and JD(U) had jointly got 206 seats out of 243 assembly seats.
"BJP had never taken the credits for development in Bihar. That was the main reason behind the success of the party that contested on lesser number of seats but despite that, it won 91 seats", Singh said.

In his letter, Singh asked Nitish that "wasn't it an insult of the people of Bihar when Lalu Prasad had called him greedy, arrogant and fraud?"
"So according to Nitish Kumar, the state starts and ends with him and if anything is said against him, the 11 crore people of Bihar must feel offended", Singh wrote.
Singh also mentioned the dates and events when Lalu had targeted Nitish Kumar in a sarcastic way when they were arch-rivals.[Bihar assembly elections 2015: Of caste-based politics and development]
"So, in this way he (Nitish) should also write an open letter to Lalu, as he had offended the people of Bihar by targetting Kumar.
At the end of the letter, Singh praised the BJP by stressing on the development of Bihar as the main agenda of the party. He also showed the overall changing colours of other political parties.
