Purnea: Without naming Nitish Kumar, BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi slammed him on Monday, saying that his arrogance is higher than Mount Everest as he thinks that no none is better than him to be the prime minister.
Addressing a massive rally here, Modi said he had mulling for days over the reason that led to the breaking of alliance (BJP-JD-U) in Bihar.
“I was thinking for days, why did our very happy alliance break. I thought a lot. Some people suggested that it was due to arrogance, some said he stabbed us in back. I thought how would Jai Prakash Narayan and Dr Ram Manohar Lohia be feeling. Imagine their pain,” Modi said without naming the Bihar Chief Minister.
“But a few days ago we understood why he broke the alliance - the dream of becoming PM did not let him sleep...and he thinks so highly of himself, it is higher than Everest...feels nothing is possible without him,” he said.
Attacking the Third Front, Modi said, “All the parties in the formation have at one point or the other helped the Congress form the government. And there are ex-PMs or those who want to be PM.”
Modi also used the opportunity to greet the people for the upcoming Holi festival. “Along with Holi, the country will also be awash with colours of elections,” he said.
“Like the colours of Holi, the colours of development, progress and brotherhood will be spread all over India,” Modi added.
