Nitish Kumar is daydreaming, says BJP

By Ians

New Delhi, April 17: Coming down heavily on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's call for a "BJP/RSS-mukt Bharat", the BJP on Sunday, April 17 said the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader was "daydreaming".

"What is Nitish Kumar's credibility to call for a BJP-mukt Bharat when he himself had been 'BJP-yukt' (associated with BJP) for 17 long years?" BJP spokesman Syed Shahnawaz Hussain said.


Hussain said such statements were a "desperate bid on the part of a regional party leader" to hog the limelight.

"Nitish Kumar's JD-U is a regional party that has never contested on all the seats even in Bihar," he said.

Hussain said the Bihar chief minister was dreaming of playing a crucial role in national politics.

"These are his dreams but these dreams will not be realised. The Janata Dal is not united even in Bihar. So Nitish Kumar first needs to build his party at a national level before giving such statements," Hussain added.

Nitish Kumar had on Saturday appealed to the opposition to unite against the Bharatiya Janata Party.

"All the organisations which do not identify with BJP/RSS communal politics will have to come under one banner to save our democracy," Nitish Kumar said.

He predicted that the country was heading towards a bipolar political divide with BJP-RSS on one side and the rest on the other.

Nitish Kumar's comments did not go down well with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as well.

"RSS is the soul of India. How can they free India of its soul?" RSS leader Rakesh Sinha said.
