New Delhi: Congress on Friday slammed Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi for his defiance against his party leadership JD(U), saying he appears to be bent on "sinking the ship" instead of navigating it through "turbulent" waters.
"Manjhi, unlike the rower & navigator his name suggests, seems bent upon sinking the ship he should be navigating through turbulent waters," Congress spokesman Abhishek Singhvi tweeted.
"Power pelf & post gives voice to puppets, breeds insatiable ambition & the worm Wl turn if he gets enormous power -- all seen in manjhi episode," he added.
Manjhi has been defiant in the face his party leadership's move to facilitate return of Nitish Kumar as the Chief Minister.
There are reports that Manjhi could be on his way out as the JD(U) is all set to replace him with his mentor Nitish Kumar at a meeting of the legislature party in Patna tomorrow.
