New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party leader Kirti Azad on Tuesday reportedly came out in support of Rajya Sabha MP and JD(U) general secretary Shivanad Tiwari who had hailed the party`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
Commenting on the issue, Azad said that Tiwari had spoken the truth, as per a news report.
"The truth can be suppressed but cannot be hidden," he reportedly said.
Azad`s comment comes after Tiwari hailed Modi at the party`s JD(U)`s `Chintin Shivir` in Rajgir and said that Modi, despite being from poor background, rose to great heights.
“I am an admirer of Modi. Coming from a poor background, he has worked hard to reach where he has today,” Tiwari said.
He, however, added that Modi’s ideology is a big challenge for them.
BJP and JD(U) had parted ways earlier this year after 17 years of alliance.
