Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in Patna on Monday accused Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of trying to steal the thunder from the Central government by taking credits for center-sponsored projects in Bihar.
Former Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and BJP state President Mangal Pandey, at a press conference in Patna, said that Nitish Kumar was taking credit for works done that had nothing to do with him or his government.
"We are not going to sit idle and let the Chief Minister take credit for things he had nothing to do with. We are also going to expose the Chief Minister for his so-called 'Seven Resolves' that is nothing more than a cheap political stunt to pull a fast one on the unsuspecting voters of Bihar," Modi said.
Pandey said that the seven resolves were in fact center projects but Nitish Kumar had hijacked them and given them new monikers to claim them as his own.
"The plan is centrally proposed and funded but the Chief Minister, in his lust to earn accolades, is claiming them to be his own," he said.
On the occasion, Modi said that the BJP state working committee meet will be held in Patna on June 18 and 19.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
