Kishanganj: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar yesterday accused the Congress of playing politics on the promised Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) centre in Kishanganj. He also accused the ruling party at the centre of backtracking on the promised funds for the Multi Sectoral Development Programme (MSDP), launched in seven districts in Bihar for achieving an all-round development of the minorities.
Strongly decrying the politics allegedly being played by the Congress in the name of the establishment of an extended unit of Aligarh Muslim Univesity (AMU) at Kishanganj, he said, "After the state government had readily made the land available, the ball was ''truly on the court of the Centre.''
Nitish Kumar remarked that the Congress had the knack of bursting on the scene in a ''new avatar'' every fifteenth or twentieth year and held it squarely responsible for all the alleged ills plaguing the country.
Without naming RJD chief Lalu Prasad, the Bihar Chief Minister complimented Taslimuddin for parting ways with the ''lantern party'', saying the party supremo ''always played political chicanery and duped the minorities by making false promises.''
''He was always long on words,but short on accomplishments,'' Nitish Kumar remarked.
The Chief Minister was reacting to allegations of phoney concern for the minorities, which was levelled by the Congress against him, while adressing a rally at Ruidhasa ground in Kishanganj after the induction of former Union Minister of State (MOS) and RJD heavyweight leader Taslimuddin into the JD(U).
Prominent among those who joined the JD (U) with their ''political guide'' Taslimuddin, were Surendra Singh Yadav, Shanker Azad, Usman Gani, Prahlad Sarkar, Madhav Prasad Modi and Om Prakash Saha.
