Kishanganj: Congress today said
attempts by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to woo minorities
would come a cropper in the upcoming Assembly elections as
people have realised that he was "trying to fool them".
Accusing Kumar of enacting a high drama by returning Rs 5
crore flood relief fund from BJP-ruled Gujarat, AICC general
secretary and in-charge of Bihar affairs Mukul Wasnik told
party workers here that the Chief Minister stood exposed.
"Kumar`s real communal face has been exposed during the
national executive meeting of the BJP," he said referring to
to the JD(U) leader taking strong exception to newspaper
advertisements that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi had
donated funds for Kosi flood relief.
Kumar had also expressed ire over another newspaper
advertisement showing him holding Modi`s hand.
Asserting that the central government has left no stone
unturned for ensuring Bihar`s development, Wasnik rubbished
the charge of the ruling NDA that the UPA was meting out
step-motherly treatment to states ruled by opposition parties
and had blocked development funds.
He claimed that 80 per cent of development work in Bihar
was because of the funds made available by the Centre.
