Patna: A day after Prime Minister showered praise on him declaring him one of the best Chief Ministers in the nation, Nitish Kumar returned the favor on Sunday when he called Narendra Modi as some someone who was fearless and who led the nation from the front.
"Running a country like India is not a simple. Representing a population such as in India is, by no means, an easy job. Only those leaders succeed who lead from the front and not from behind. Narendra Modi leads from the front and is a fearless and gutsy leader. A good leader, while taking credit for the good works done by his administration, also does not shy away from taking blames for his failures," Kumar said at the release of a book on the three years of Modi in power written by Uay Mahurkar at a function held at Rabindra Bhawan in Patna.
The Chief Minister, taking a shot at the Congress Party, said that the party that had been in power for the longest period of time fostered a political environment where credits were grabbed by the top leaders while blames were served to those who were not in power.
Kumar also patted himself on the back for supporting Narendra Modi on his demonetization and GST policies saying when hardly anyone outside the NDA was supporting him on these two issues, he praised him for his bold decisions designed to make the nation stronger.
The Chief Minister also credited himself for imposing prohibition and anti-dowry measures to stop child marriage and introducing bicycle schemes for girl students in Bihar.
