Patna: Sacked Bihar excise minister
Jamshed Ashraf today said Chief minister Nitish Kumar
cancelling a dinner for top BJP leaders including L K Advani
and Nitin Gadkari was in a bad taste.
"A person sitting in the lap of BJP and RSS has no
right to give sermons about secularism, Ashraf told reporters
about the dinner which was cancelled after the publication of
advertisements depicting him holding hands with Gujarat Chief
Minister Narendra Modi.
As railway minister Kumar had not deemed it fit to
visit Godhra in 2002 in which hundreds of people were
killed, he claimed.
The minorities, particularly Muslims had identified
the true face of Kumar and would give him a fitting reply
in the upcoming assembly elections despite, he claimed.
Ashraf said he had resigned from the primary
membership of the JD(U) on June seven, but instead of
accepting it, Kumar gave a statement on June 11 sacking
him for anti-party activities.
