Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for remaining silent on a host of issues that the country was confronted with.

The JD(U) leader posted a series of tweets on micro-blogging site attacking the PM over the rising prices of pulses, killing of Dalit children in Haryana and Dadri lynching incident, saying that tactical silence was Modi's new weapon of choice.

"Modi ji was always unmatched in theatrics, rhetoric and using unsubstantiated facts now tactical silence is his new weapon of choice," the Bihar CM said.

"For someone who doesn’t miss an opportunity to talk or tweet by the minute on literally anything it is baffling that Modi ji doesn’t speak a word on issues that exhort the collective conscience of the country or bother the common masses. No words on gruesome killing of Dalit children in Haryana, mob lynching in Dadri or skyrocketing prices of dal," he added.

"No words on promises he made and then conveniently forgot - black money, farmer MSP, youth employment, special status for Bihar - lists goes on," Nitish further said.

Polling for the 243-member Bihar Assembly is taking place in five phases between October 12 and November 5.

The counting of votes is slated for November 8.
