Ranchi: Congress on Tuesday sought to ask LK
Advani and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to clarify why
Bihar was chosen for the BJP leaders Jan Chetna Yatra instead
of Gujarat or other BJP-ruled states.

"LK Advani should clarify his choice of state for his
yatra. If, according to him, Bihar government is free of
corruption, does it mean other BJP-ruled states like Gujarat
have corrupt governments?" asked AICC spokesman Shakeel Ahmed.

"And Nitish Kumar should explain to the people for
allowing L K Advani to start his yatra from Bihar. He (Kumar)
has always distanced from Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi
following the infamous Godhra incidents. Has the Bihar chief
minister forgotten that Advani is one of the charge-sheeted
persons in the Babri Masjid demolition?" he said.

Ahmed, who was here to attend the `shardh` of Rajya
Sabha member Ramdayal Munda, was reacting to media query on
Advani embarking on his sixth career yatra, flagged off by
Nitish Kumar, from Sitabdiara, the birth place of Jayaprakash
Narayan.
