BJP today mocked Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for appealing to non-BJP parties to make a ‘Sangh-mukt Bharat’, saying the JD(U) national president was “daydreaming”.
“Nitish Kumar has no credibility to call for a Sangh-Mukt Bharat (India free from BJP and RSS), as he himself was BJP Yukt (connected with BJP) for several years,” BJP national spokesman Syed Shahnawaz Hussain said.
Sharpening his attack on Kumar, Hussain, who was here to campaign for BJP candidates, described the statement as “a desperate bid to bring himself (Kumar) into limelight despite being a regional party leader.”
“Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) is a regional party that has never contested in all the seats even in Bihar ... He is dreaming of playing a key role in national politics, which will never be realised,” he said.
