Narendra Modi's is a 'Union Twitter Government': Nitish Kumar
Sunday August 9, 2015 5:25 PM, IANS

New Delhi:
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday described the Narendra Modi government as a "union Twitter government that listens, acts and responds only on twitter".

"Finally we have a government that could be truly called a 'Union Twitter Government' that listens, acts and responds only on twitter," Nitish Kumar wrote on twitter.

He asked Modi to explain what he did for the farmers of the country in the past one year and accused him of doing nothing vis-a-vis providing enhanced minimum support price for farm produce.

Nitish Kumar said it was "heartening" that Modi started his speech at a rally in Bihar taking cognizance of his (Nitish) tweets.

"Modiji, even though you didn't answer my questions, (it) was heartening to see you open your speech at Muzaffarpur taking cognizance of my tweets."

Nitish Kumar also took a jibe over Modi's promise not to give election ticket to anyone with criminal background.

"Modiji, you spoke passionately of decriminalising politics, but conveniently forgot and did nothing in a year.

"We commit no ticket to criminals. Now, show courage and commit to this in Bihar today," he said.

The Janata Dal-United leader reminded the prime minister that people of the country were still waiting for the Rs.15-20 lakh he had promised before general elections last year.

Meanwhile, Narendra Modi on Sunday urged people to bring the BJP-led alliance to power in Bihar to develop the state and to stop the return of jungle raj.

"I am here to appeal to you to vote for us to develop Bihar and to stop a return of jungle raj," Modi said a rally in Gaya.

He warned that "jungle raj-II" will return to Bihar if his party was not voted to power.

He attacked Nitish Kumar and his ally Lalu Prasad of the Rashtriya Janata Dal.

"There is a strong possibility of destruction if jungle raj part-II returns to Bihar."

He blamed the years of rule of Lalu Prasad and his wife Rabri Devi for Bihar's backwardness and under development.

"When they ruled the state, hardly any development took place."

Modi recalled that he had once described the RJD as "Rozana Jungleraj ka Darr". On Sunday, he called the JD-U "Janata Ka Daman Aur Utpidan".

The prime minister promised that if the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance took power, Bihar will be out of the BIMARU tag.

"We will take Bihar out of BIMARU tag in the next five years by economic development like Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan."

It was Modi's second public rally after one at Muzaffarpur last month when he kickstarted the BJP campaign for the coming Bihar assembly polls.

BJP president Amit Shah and several union ministers received Modi here when he flew in by an Indian Air Force aircraft.

Bihar's assembly elections are due later this year.
