Behave like PM of India and not like Sangh's campaigner: RJD tells PM Modi

Patna: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bihar visit today, his first since NDA faced a massive defeat in the state Assembly polls last year, seems to have caught the attention of many with Janata Dal (United) and Rashtriya Janata Dal parties reminding him of 'cooperative federalism'.

Moreover, they also mentioned that they expect PM Modi to behave like the Prime Minister of India and not as an eternal campaigner of Sangh.

PM Modi will be arriving in Patna on a day-long visit today where he will dedicate to the nation the newly constructed Digha-Sonepur rail-cum-road bridge and inaugurate a new rail bridge in Munger.

He will also kick-start the operation of the goods trains on the newly constructed rail portion of Munger Rail-Cum Road Bridge from Sahebpur Kamal end in Begusarai district. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is expected to share the dias with PM Modi today.

RJD’s Tejashwi Prasad Yadav told Indian Express that the theatrics with which PM Narendra Modi announced the fictitious special package, he should apologise to the people of Bihar for not keeping up his promise with the same style.

RJD spokesperson Manoj Jha said, “For once we want Narendra Modi to see as the PM of India, not as an eternal campaigner for the Sangh ideology. We want to be reassured that a Prime Minister shall look at Bihar through the genuine sense of cooperative federalism.
