The MLA, Parveen Amanullah, from the Sahebpur Kalam assembly segment quit and joined AAP and questioned Kumar on his ways of functioning.
However Kumar's Sankalp rally witnessed a massive crowd on Thursday. Many felt that after the incident the public opinion would've changed but the strong crowd of 70,000 at Kumar's rally had a different story to tell.
Nitish, in his rally, attacked communal forces and also launched an attack on BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi too.
"Communal forces are trying to destroy brotherhood and amity in society. Stay alert as the development of the state would be the first casualty in the event of breach in social harmony," Nitish said.
Addressing the rally, Nitish said: "Some people sitting in Patna and Delhi are of late underestimating us. But the fact remains that the people braving biting cold and inclement weather conditions have turned up at our meetings."
