Patna: Taking a dig at RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that both the leaders are competing with each other over who can abuse him more.
Campaigning for the third phase of Bihar polls, PM Modi today addressed a rally in Bihar's Buxar district and launched a scathing attack on the 'grand alliance', saying that the 25 years of misrule in Bihar is soon to end.
While taking on the Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party's star campaigner said the grand old party is contesting 40 Assembly seats, but it is no where visible. “There will be no contest in these 40 seats and all will be won by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA),” PM Modi stressed.
“Madam Sonia ji, the Congress ruled Bihar for 35 years and the party must tell people what development work was done during that period,” PM Modi exhorted.
While mocking the Nitish-Lalu combine, the BJP leader said Nitish ji has promised to give computer, but how will they run when there is no electricity, adding, “the Lalu virus is already there in those computer.”
While appealing to the electorate to reject the 'Mahagathbandhan' (a front floated by Janata Dal (United), Rashtriya Janata Dal and Congress), PM asserted, he has six-point formula for Bihar's development – education, medicines, employment, electricity, roads and water.
Pitching on the BJP's development agenda for Bihar, Modi said the poll-bound state needs 'democracy' and not 'tantra' for its salvation.
Modi further lamented that he would risk his life for maintaining the reservation policy.
“Those who have been obstructing reservation for women are allies of Congress. What does Sonia ji have to say about this,” PM said.
