Nitish to send 'DNA samples' to PM Modi, launches 'Take Back Words' campaign

New Delhi: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over 'DNA' statement stating that despite requests, he is yet to retract his 'derogatory' remark and declared the launch of 'Shabdwapasi' (Take Back Words) campaign.

Nitish took to Twitter and wrote that at least 50 lakh people will be part of the campaign and will send their DNA samples for tests to Modi.

He further tweeted that Modi's 'DNA' statement is an insult for Bihar and its residents.

The first phase of the campaign will be completed in Patna'a Gandhi Maidan rally on August 29 while the second phase will take place in September.

“We will take the campaign to every house in Bihar and will hold 'Swabhiman' rallies in four-five districts,” he tweeted.

The controversy started after PM Modi attacked Nitish Kumar on July 25, accusing him of "back-stabbing" the people of the state and alleging that there is some problem with his "DNA".

"During the last elections, Kumar had said that if he was unable to provide electricity to entire Bihar, he would not come to ask for votes again in 2015...But have you got the electricity? It has not come. But he has come to ask for votes. He betrayed your trust. Forget me, he even back-stabbed you. Such people cannot be trusted again," PM Modi said.

In an open letter on Twitter, Nitish Kumar said Modi`s remark questioning his DNA was seen as an "insult" by large sections of the people in Bihar and beyond and urged Modi to "please consider taking back your comments".
