Patna: In a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday demanded that the PM give an account of the work done by the NDA government at the Centre instead of asking him to give an account of 25-year rule of RJD and JD(U) in Bihar.
"He has been asking us to give an account of the 25-year rule of RJD and JD(U) but is himself running away from giving account of work of his government in the past one-and-a-half year to the people.
"Prime Minister said he would give account of his government in five years. But in five years the people themselves take account of the work," he told a private TV channel programme here.
He claimed that there was no progress on poll promises made by the prime minister regarding bringing back black money and distribution of Rs 15 lakh to Rs 20 lakh out of it to every citizen, jobs for youths and enhanced MSP for farmers.
Kumar said he has been submitting report card of the work by his government every year. "This year in July we gave a composite report of 10 year of my government since 2005."
He said while presenting his future vision for next five years he had unveiled several programmes for the welfare of youths, women and unemployed if voted back to power in the coming again.
Kumar took umbrage to Modi's DNA barb at him, which, he said, is considered an abuse in rural areas. He also rubbished the reason given by BJP that the prime minister meant his political DNA.
"I have never heard that DNA is political. Besides hear again the speech of the PM at Muzaffarpur and he has no where talked about political DNA," Kumar, whose party has launched "Sabdhwapsi" (take back words) campaign on DNA issue, said.
