Bihar CM living in 'mortal fear' of Narendra Modi: Giriraj

Former Bihar minister asked the CM to take responsibility for the serial blasts and bring to book those officials entrusted with security for the rally

Press Trust of India  |  Patna 

Former minister and senior BJP leader Giriraj Singh today claimed that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was living in 'mortal fear' of his Gujarat counterpart Narendra Modi.

Going by the manner in which the Bihar Chief Minister has been trying to ridicule Modi's knowledge of history and general affairs at all his public rallies, one can say for sure that Kumar must even be dreaming about him, the former Minister for Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Resources said, adding that the JD(U) leader gets flustered by Modi's persona.

Defending the party prime ministerial candidate's reference about glories of ancient Bihar during his 'Hunkar Rally' speech in Patna, Singh said that Modi was right in whatever he had said and the same has been corroborated by books and other reference materials.

Slamming the JD(U) government for security lapses at the BJP rally which was marred by serial blasts claiming seven lives, the former minister asked the Chief Minister to take responsibility for the serial blasts and bring to book those officials entrusted with security for the rally.
