Ranchi, Sep 12: Slamming Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for indulging "politics" in Jharkhand, Chief Minister Raghubhar Das today said Kumar was "helpless" as his own allies in Bihar were "opposing" him.
Das asked Nitish to first rein in Mohammed Shahabbudin and take confidence of fearful people there before bothering about Jharkhand, an official release said quoting him.
The Jharkhand CM further blamed Kumar of riding piggyback on such leaders of Jharkhand who lacked the base and resources.
Commenting on Kumar's Jamshedpur visit yesterday where the CM demanded to enlist kurmi caste in the tribal list, Das took a swipe at the Bihar Chief Minister and accused Kumar of indulging in politics in Jharkhand.
While sometimes Kumar calls for banning liquor, at other times he raises demand for inclusion of kurmi caste in tribal list, Das said.
