Deputy leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Ravi Shankar Prasad said: "Why was Nitish slient on the corruption in the Congress led government?" He said that Nitish was soft on Congress and wanted an alliance with it.
Prasad in a press conference said that 'Nitish Kumar's doublespeak has validated Narendra Modi's criticism of him.'
He alleged that Nitish has become arrogant and cannot differentiate between blower's wind and public wave. "The rallies Modi addressed in Bihar were amongst the biggest in India and Nitish calls it 'blower ki hawa.'

Prasad went on to add that there was a direct attack on Modi and Nitish kept mum about this. "Indian Mujahideen was involved in the Patna blasts and you (Nitish) didn't mention that in your speech." he said.
BJP rejects the charge of fascism levied on Narendra Modiji, he said. "By calling Modi a fascist and Hitler he is accepting his defeat and using language fit only for enemies," Prasad said.
