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.
