Patna, 2 Nov (PTI): In a scathing attack on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, senior BJP leader and former minister Giriraj Singh said that he was quarrelling with Narendra Modi out of “jealousy” like a “dehati aurat” (rural woman).
“He is behaving like a dehati aurat (rural woman) and quarrelling with Narendra Modi out of jealousy,” Singh told reporters at Patna airport after Narendra Modi flew for Gaurichak to meet family of blast victim Rajnarain Singh.
“It does not seems he is a Chief Minister the way he is acting against Narendra Modi out of jealousy. This reflects his small mindedness,” he said in a strong attack on Kumar.
On the CM’S indirect dig on Modi that some people were trying to “disturb” the harmony of the state, Singh said Kumar is “vitiating” the environment. But the BJP would not allow this to happen, he added.
Giriraj Singh, who has served as the animal husbandry minister, alleged that there was violation of protocol for Modi.
“The District Magistrate did not visit him at state guest house and also at airport. Except for a Deputy Superintendent of Police level officer no other senior civil or police officers were present to supervise security arrangements for Narendra Modi at the airport,” he said and alleged that this was done to “please” Kumar.
Narendra Modi, after reaching Patna at around 11:15 PM on 1 November, is putting up at state guest house which is across the road to the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s residence.
