Patna, Nov 15: Senior JD(U) leader and former Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday made scathing attacks over Prime Minister Narendra Modi over continuous Chinese incursions and ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the LoC asking where is PM's 56-inch chest now.
During the second day of his 'Sampark Yatra', a campaign to connect with the people of Bihar and increase the ruling JD(U)'s grounds, Nitish said, "The world is laughing over what is happening at the border. What has happened to the PM's 56-inch chest now? If he has a 56-inch chest, he must do something."
Taking a jibe over Prime Minister's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, the former Bihar CM said they first spread garbage and later cleaned them for photo-ops.
Nitish Kumar began his 'Sampark Yatra' from November 13, apparently to launch campaign for the Assembly polls next year. It will be a whirlwind tour where the JD(U) leader will address 32 public meetings in as many districts.
The ruling party hopes that the 16-day 'Yatra' from Nov 13 to Nov 29 will galvanise the party, strengthen it at the grassroot level and prepare workers to meet challenges.
Talking to media persons, JD(U) state president Vashitha Narayan Singh had earlier said the tour has been planned as a political summit across the districts.
"The aim of Kumar's Yatra is to activate the party at the grassroot level, energise and strengthen it and make party workers aware about the present political situation. It will prepare the workers to meet future challenges," Singh said.
